What a day! Our quilt guild, Big Springs, had our annual Christmas luncheon and gift exchange today. This is a busy time of the year, but we still managed to have about 17 present. I cannot begin to express how important this Guild and the members are to me! They are a talented and sweet group of ladies! I am so fortunate to have them in my life.
We made some pictures of our get together today and thought I would share them with you.
We decided to give our hand-made gifts to each other and below are some of the gifts we received. . .
Beautiful quilted table runner!
Pieced table mat. Lovely.
Mod Podge Christmas ornament made from scraps.
Mini Dresden plate mug rug! Stunning!
Machine embroidered snowflake ornaments!
Knitted scarf. Cozy!
The above is a 10 minute table runner! What a great quick gift!
The center of the small quilt above was achieved by pounding flowers into
fabric (one way to work out your frustration and/or stress) and quilted around.
Some of the pictures believe it or not did not turn out well . . . eyes shut, mouth wide open, etc. So sorry if I missed anyone.
A group picture of the members that could
come today! We really missed those of you that
could not come! See you next year!
FOOD WAS DELICIOUS!
Again this was a great day! Good Food! Great Friends!
I am looking forward to 2013 and spending time with each of you each month!
AGAIN, MERRY CHRISTMAS and a VERY HAPPY and HEALTHY
