Cozy into Winter

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
— Edith Sitwell

In December, the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild host our annual ornament exchange. It is a time that we get to share a holiday gift of ‘stitchy goodness’ with each other.

The ornament exchange is always such fun, and the best part is seeing the variety of beautiful ornaments. While we couldn’t be together in person this year, we were still able to see each other virtually, exchange our ornaments, and have some fun.

Some of the ornaments given and received are among the many Show & Tell items at this months meeting. Sit back and enjoy!
