Christmas Lunch Gathering...

Another lunch, another gathering...it's that time of year, it's starting to feel a lot more like Christmas now!
My Tuesday patchwork group, The Pelican Quilters met in a cafe for our wind up lunch.
How lovely it is to sit and get waited on with a lovely smoked salmon, pear, rocket, and cheese salad with a yummy Berry Cheesecake dessert to finish off...a few girls could not make it due to family commitments...we missed you girls!

I'm sure the girls are tired of me taking their photos, and must think..." Oh no!'...and as you can see I'm not in the photo...cheeky smile...next time I'll get someone else to take the photo..

Melanie sitting there with her arm in a sling only just made it...last Thursday she had an op on her shoulder to reattach the torn muscle, also had an op on her lower arm, her Dh husband drove her up and sat at another table on his own reading the paper while we enjoyed our lunch...how lovely was that of him to do that!

Here's Diane with her present, look at the sweet little knitted bells that Mem made to decorate the parcel...
That's Mem standing, Marie is holding up a gorgeous waffle tea towel appliqued with cupcakes that Kerry made...and below a lovely pink tea towel appliqued with ice creams.
Oh, and this is my lovely gift...a beautiful bolster cushion...how lucky was I, and in my colours too, could not be more perfect for me.....Thank you Glynis, I love it!
It was a lovely lunch and great to meet up with friends for lunch...thank you girls!
I hope your day was lovely and perhaps an even better one today...♥
