Hi Cuties, I’m attending a Christmas ladies games night tonight at 6.00 with a group of ladies I see on my early morning walk. The lady hosting it has asked us to bring a gift worth approximately $20. I’ve made a Christmas tea towel, a zipper purse and an FSL Santa. We are also bringing a plate of goodies to share. I’ve made my gorgeous Cornflake Meringues which everyone loves.

Tomorrow we’re babysitting Dana’s Aqualina (Jasana and Ryke are with friends). We also have them on Sunday as Dana is auditioning for a role in the stage production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Knowing she has a great voice and can dance (and has great gymnastic ability) I’m sure she will get a part. It’s her first time at doing a stage show since she left school 20 years ago. One good thing is she teaches Acrobatics at Jasana and Aqualina’s dance class. Love Chris

The gifts are so nice. I love the new Santa and also the purse/design. You need to share your recipe for these Cornflake Meringues, never heard of them but I'm always looking for something different.

Thanks Carolyn, I thought so. There were only 3 gifts that were handmade, I was the only sewer amongst the ladies. Love Chris

Great looking gifts, Chris. It sounds like you had a grand time. Your meringues look super yummy - no wonder they disappeared so quickly! Enjoy your grands.

The gifts are so festive (who ever receive it will love them). I love making plain meringues - do you share the recipe? Good luck to Dana!!

Thanks Laura, I do hope so, I didn't get to meet the person who received them. There were 28 women there and we did a pass the parcel type of thing where if the next person to receive a gift liked the previous person's gift they could take it. By the end of everyone receiving it there was a 3 minute mad dash of everyone taking a gift that they liked. I just sat back watching 3 ladies 'fight' over a coffee cup, a pot hanger (Macrame) and a makeup bag! It was so much fun. Love Chris

It's early morning for me and peeking into your oven is making me drool. This is a lovely set you made as a gift. I also like your Santa better with the colors you used this time.

Hi Miss Lillian, yes, I got a hand made painting of an Owl and a necklace. I'm hoping Dana will do well today too. Love Chris

by sebsews 28d ago

Wishing Dana good luck. I admire someone who can sing and dance (because I can't). Enjoy the grandkids! Anyone who gets your wonderful gifts will love them! And the Cornflake meringues look fantastic! Hugs and Flowers, Suzanna
