I felt as if there was a lot of sewing for this year's Cycling Christmas party (in November, how silly) but now that I look at the photographs it is pretty tame really. I was fantasizing about starting my leather jacket, which is rather impractical anyway.
I made some fabric envelopes and drawstring bags as wrapping for most of the gifts.
There is a gift exchange that is very silly. Each person brings a wrapped gift, and picks a number from a cycling helmet.
The recipient of the lowest number picks the first gift, then unwraps it. The holder of the next lowest number selects another gift, then decides whether they will keep the gift, or swap it for a gift someone else has already unwrapped. There is a lot of good natured carrying on about this.
Some of the cyclists have been mentioning every five minutes or so that they would like me to make them an under helmet head scarf like my husband's (modelled here by my daughter, who was making ninjabread men at the time). I have been successfully ignoring these hints, but thought it might generate some interest at the Silly Santa Session.
I was right.
However, I brought home one of my own cycling apron and tea towel sets :).
I think it will be Very Useful. Much better than the Suduko toilet paper roll ;)
