Guild Christmas Party

Tuesady evening was spent getting the final touches ready for our guild Christmas party last night.

The party was loads of fun, lots of yummy treats because we all know that quilters are great cooks also. We had a potholder exchange rather than a fabric exchange and what a wonderful idea. There were some great potholders made my members, and even a few made by well known retail stores. Our potholders were exchanged via a left-right story about Mrs. Wright, the quilter.

I collected 19 handmade and 31 purchased placemats at the meeting. Bright and early this morning I delivered them to our local Meals on Wheels office for distribution today with their meals. Hopefully, they will bring smiles to those who receive their meals today.

We played a couple of games....

Name the Christmas carols such as:
The apartment of 2 psychiatrists
(Nutcracker Suite)

Decipher these acronyms:
(stash accumulation beyond life expectancy)

(waste of money, batting and time)

The officers and committee chairpersons received poinsettas complete with a card describing the latest drugs for quilters:

Oxy-cotton - Never fear sewing with a polyester blend again. Take this little doozy and all the fabric you've collected over the years will automatically have the look and feel of 100% cotton.

What a great time we had!
Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos :(
