    Besides the table toppers being beautiful, I think it is so awesome you seven get together like that. Family is so important and sometimes we let life get in the way. Wishing you many more years of annual get togethers with your sisters.

    I am the tallest. All the toppers weren't finished so I was sure to get a picture with each holding the one she chose so I could remember who got which one!!!

    Lucky Lucky you to have seven sisters that get along and WANT to get together. How sweet of you to make each one a table topper. :-)

    Beautiful! You and your sisters are so lucky to have each other. Keep on with the get-togethers. I had 5 sisters, and we used to get together once a month for lunch. They are all gone now, and I miss them desperatly. Would give anything for just one more lunch with them all. Your toppers are lovely. Bet your sisters were soooo happy with them! You do beautiful work.

    Beautiful - both your sisters and the table toppers. My sisters and I (there are 5 of us) started this same tradition last September, so we just returned from our second weekend. Can't wait for the next, they are so much fun!

    I had three sisters, and we were always talking about going on a vacation together but never seemed to get around to it. Don't wait too long!!!

    Your table runners are beautiful! So lucky to have so many sisters! I have two older than me and am truly grateful for them.

    I have 6 brothers also. We all have the same parents too. when people hear how many is in the family, they invariably ask if we are a "blended" family :(

    Love the table toppers. Size? It is hard to tell Who is taller?

    You and the one wearing the red shirt or is it you(in the red shirt) and the one with the glasses.

    Great to see you all getting together.
    Oh my, five are wearing glasses. I mean the one in front of the door.
