Secret Santa

Three Christmases ago I was asked to join a Secret Santa group. That first Christmas there were 4 of us in the group. Next Christmas the group had grown to 8 and Christmas 2007 there were 16 members. We seem to have reasonably similar tastes and if we have a partner who likes something different, it gives us a chance to try something we normally wouldn't, which can't be a bad thing. I've received beautiful gifts and enjoy the opportunity to make all these goodies.
Our fearless leader decides the categories (she has to be fearless to deal with all of us). In an effort to spread the stitching/sewing load (for those of us who work better under pressure) 2007 was split into 2 Secret Santa swaps - Christmas in July and then December.

December presents I made were - Wallhanging ("Find Joy", Bareroots)

Doll ("Tree Top Angel", Rosalie Quinlan Designs) Surprise ("Snowfolk", Judy Golder)

I have just come over from Chookyblues blog, I love your Bareroots wall hanging. Well done with the bike ride, that would give you 10 Brownie points.
