Sewing Circle at Christmas time

Milk Punch - it's a Southern thing!
We had yummy food and drinks.
We exchanged fun gifts - many were home made.
We enjoyed the company!
A few stitched while visiting!

Working Shadow Embroidery on her Dagyown.

Her tiny stitches amaze me.
Carol is now working on a carpet for her Doll house.   One of these days I am going to visit her Grandaughter to see this Doll House!

I can't tell you what this is until after Christmas!
There was no show and tell today except the projects we were working on.  Just good company.
It was a fun day!

How about a recipe for Milk punch?
Merry Blessed Christmas Jeannie!

Recipe? A friend of mine is the maker of these yummy drinks and the proportions are not exact but here it is. She usually makes it per glass, but did a pitcher of milk , cream and sugar for the party based on her per glass method, then added the bourbon to the glass. She did this by taste.
In a glass: a spoonful of sugar for a large glass (fine), add Bourbon and stir till sugar is dissolved. Add 1/3 real half and half and 2/3 whole milk. Stir. Add ice cubes and sprinkle nutmeg on top. This is a favorite drink of Sewing Ladies!

Nothing better than Milk Punch drinking, gift exchanging and stitching with friends! Sounds like a delightful day.
The Milk Punch I have had used ice cream in place of milk or cream. That also made it cold without the use of ice cubes. I will have to try your method.
