Girlfriends! Christmas 2009

Happy Christmas, Girlfriends! Thank you for sharing such a lovely day - precious moments!

Wow! What a day - 5am start and a late evening.

We are all so fortunate to have each other - lots of hugs and fun and being there for each other! How wonderful is Gwen, chatting and enjoying her bubbly while Barb and Teena stitch! Gwen's home thrills us all - the best place to have our Christmas gathering!

How gorgeous is this - a gift to Gwen from her Boyfriend! It is a shame the flash has reflected in the glass of this great print - Indian women who have displayed their textiles.

It was so wonderful to welcome Jan of Gallivantour back home - for 5 weeks only and then she and Bill will resume their wonderful travels around Australia! Jan's in the blue and Kris is showing her lovely apron, a gift from another Jan!

Gwen has just returned from a wonderful trip taking in Gutemala - fabulous traditional fabric!

Kris is showing us another lovely apron - a gift from Gwen, another wonderful fabric from Guatemala!
A toast to us all!

I hope you can enjoy the spirit and the bubbles! Lots more pics - we'll see what the next few days bring - until then, Happy Day!

Hello Lurline, Looks like everyone got into the Christmas spirit. Gwens home looks divine. I think one of the Aussie magazines should showcase it. Happy days.

Glad you had so much Christmas fun. Don't know how I would handle the 5am start though.
Have a wonderful Christmas :-)
