Dirty Santa The Game....
Several have asked what is "Dirty Santa"....well I've been playing it for years. Our little rug hooking group decided we would play at our Christmas party.
We had decided to each hook, stitch, punch, or create whatever we chose as a handmade gift. Each person wraps it up with no name attached.
We had 10 people at our party and 10 gifts. Each person draws a number out of the basket from 1 to 10. One goes first and picks a gift to unwrap. Number 2 has the option of "stealing" #1's gift or opening one. Then the person with #3 can "steal" #1's or #2's gift or open one. Once the gift has been stolen twice it belongs to the 3rd person to be holding it. Since #1 person didn't get an option to "steal" they get to as the very last person if they choose to do so.
"Stealing"....such a bad word!
I whole~heartedly admit I'M A THIEF....I stole this wonderful hooked rug. Pati is requesting that it should have been her's and I admit it should have...so I'll just hook her one and Sandra wants one too. Our good friend Ann made this one and I just love it!
We play Dirty Santa at our church Christmas dinner, too. Loads of fun maybe you can find a group that would like to play!
I made the stocking that Kay is holding. It was filled with greenery and wool.
My good friend Sandra dyed these gorgeous wools and gave them to me....I don't know if I can cut them up they look so good.
Sloan is back and he is worn out. He is snoozing as I type. I have a small tree for him to decorate but it may have to wait until the weekend. He is coming over to stay this weekend and we have popcorn parties, a birthday party for my niece and daughter and a movie date planned....guess he better rest while he can!
