This is the part of the September Stitch Shenanigans that we call the Chinese Auction. It works like this: each person brings a wrapped gift (in this case, a CQ related gift). Then each gets a number, and the person with #1 chooses a gift to open. Theresa was first and opened the gift I brought, a box with a CQed top.
She liked it, but would she end up with it?
Debbie went next and she could have stolen the box from Theresa or she could open a new present. She opened the CQed Santa that Leslie made.
I went third and opened a pretty, tall, sparkly blue package that contained one of Gerry K's wonderful pin cushions. I tried not to get too attached to it.
Of course it got stolen, so I got to open another gift, this time a CQ covered tin (made by Debbie) with goodies inside....
...and a box of flower fairy note cards. I tried not to get too attached to it.
Connie is looking to make a steal. I think she ended up with Gerry K's pin cushion, and since it had been stolen twice, it was now off limits.
Kerry stole Leslie's Santa from Debbie.
I lost the goodies from Debbie, so I opened another gift; a fancy box with handmade ribbon flowers from Theresa. I tried not to get too attached.
Ingrid stole the tin that Debbie made (and later gave me half the note cards, is she sweet or what?).
I lost the handmade ribbon flowers, and got to open yet ANOTHER gift. These are Czech glass buttons that came from the bead store we had shopped at earlier in the day. I had bought one of the dragonfly buttons for myself, but in a different color, so now I have two.
I am rather attached to them.....
