Party pressies.....

An informal group of us who get together for stitch and chat... mostly chat ... and snacks.... and occasionally some wine.....

I made more of Christine's almond biscuits... my first lot got gobbled up... I don't know how that happened since I'm not really eating desserts and such like.....

(Christine recipe is lovely and easy and really really delicious)

... very strict instructions were given that this last batch was not to be touched!....

I wanted to take a little something for this special group of friends.....

home baked almond bread piled onto a pretty paper plate with a mini bar of chocolate 

wrapped up in celophane and a cute little ornie attached....

... gifties in a row......

Righto... Gotto Go... I need to make another batch of biscotti's... for us (even though I'm not really eating desserts and those sort of things...)

a Christmas picture some of my grandchildren
