December Meeting - Christmas!

Even though it was only the 1st of December, this was our Christmas meeting.
Instead of a speaker, we had the chance to chat with other members of the branch while we each worked on a little Autumn leaf brooch project.

This was a very social meeting, we had a specially baked cake, gingerbread biscuits and mince pies to make us feel really Christmassy, together with a raffle, bran tub, and the Christmas competition.
The theme this year was White Christmas, and it was Nikki who won the prize with her ingenious three dimensional and fully illuminated piece.
