Recycled Gift Giving - This has become a tradition for our SCQuilty Christmas Parties. We bring a gift that hasn't been used, is in good condition but something that you will never use... and as strange as possible.

 ... You can tell by the look on Marianne's face just how much fun this recycled gift idea can be.
Check it out on the movie below.

 Or there again you can receive something you always wanted just as Helen did.

 Jean was lucky enough to receive the recycled 'Sensational Swans' DVD from 2005... and some other goodies.

 Rita on the other hand received half a dozen fish shaped serving dishes and 'Cool Fingers'  Look out for these next year methinks!

 Steph is thinking this could be useful??

 Annette is thinking she might need to go and learn Japanese so she can read her new Quilt Book... nice little dish though.

 Someone had a good clean out of their sewing room and Ros was lucky enough to receive this gift, she said she'd certainly be keeping some of them.

 Poor Heather.... she can't bear to look at her gift, she received it two years ago and thought she'd seen the end of it!  This parcel was disguised, it was wrapped up in several layers of paper with a small gift inside each wrapping.  Heather will have to think of a different way to wrap this gift next year.

 Penny looks delighted with her gift, the top of the tree comes off and it becomes a salt shaker, the bottom is for pepper.  Looks can be deceptive ;-)

 Marilyn is hiding behind her gift!

 Claire choose the basket saying at least she would be able to use the basket after... it was filled with all sorts of wonderful stuff most of which won't be coming back.

 Lynne wasn't too worried about her gift, she thinks the grandchildren may like some of these DVD's

 Cath may not be bringing this gift back either, it's filled with 'Dove' products.

A lovely bowl for Paddy who had to leave before she opened this gift, she's coming to pick it up later today.

What a fun day Pennie - so sorry I missed it. Now I'm dreading next year. I KNOW I will end up with either Marianne's cat or Heather's what-on-earth-is-that thingie.
