A Few More Gifts

I made a few more backpacks and gifted them to a few members of my family. One is a Hostess Gift~to our party hostess. The others went to my *out of town* relatives for the *After Party Party*. An unusual tradition that my family keeps. After the large family Chiristmas Party, all the *out of town*ers gather at my Mom's house and exchange gifts~again!

Although *no one* claims to know exaclty how the *After Party Party* started, I theorize it began as a way for my brother and his family to celebrate their Christmas while away from their home when the children were small. :) Their children are no longer small but the *out of towners* gather at my Mom's and exchange small gifts to each other.

I also made some luggage tags to go along with the backpacks.

Let's not forget the potato steamer bags, too for this group!

No wonder you were still busily stitching away the last few days before the holiday! Prolific girl there, Pat! I bet everybody loved whichever giftie they received from you.

Merry Christmas my friend!
