December 2019 meeting recap

Continued apologizing for the lateness of this post! But here, finally, is what happened in our December meeting..

First up, our Holiday Swap! The rules were that you had to make a home decor type item with a holiday theme. It was a "yankee swap" style game - so there was quite a bit of stealing and shuffling around. I did miss some items in my photos because of that - sorry! But here's most of it:
