The First Christmas Lunch of the Season

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  Our tree is up, most of the decorations are out and probably 60% of the presents are wrapped.  Some of them are actually on their way to the recipients.  But the most Christmassy thing of all has to be the first Christmas party of the season.
Last Friday I went to the Christmas lunch for one of the fiber groups I belong to.  Lunch was delicious, but the best part, as always, was the gift exchange.  Being quilters/fiber artists most of us brought gifts we had made.  I received this beautiful fabric bowl from Carolyn.
It was a lovely lunch with a lovely group of friends.  And it really put me in the Christmas spirit!
