Here is the best party of the year! When my local group gets together for the annual Christmas Party Exchange. I really needed this party to give me a quick "brain" break from my son's accident. It really was a wonderful few hours of escape and allowed me to breath a little easier... :) I won a wonderful basket full of yarn, lighted crochet hook, I have been wanting one for some time now, and a new knitting book...with a little teddy bear Christmas ornament. And check out the yummy treats and cookies!!! Thank you everyone for such a great party!!...
