Holiday Festivies

Our guild had our annual holiday party recently--lots of great desserts and silly fun.

Quilters can cook--goodies galore:

Lovely table decorations--the gift bags were just for "atmosphere"--they were empty, faked us all out:

There were games and singing. Somehow, the 12 Days of Christmas song, complete with calisthenics, has become an annual tradition. There is video evidence on our closed Facebook group, so, no, you can't see it.

Even after almost 32 years, I still love our monthly Show and Tell the most. Here is just a glimpse:

Barbara B--Animal quilt, wool applique's, so pretty

The back--beautifully quilted by Patty Wilson

Beverly P--Sizzle Cool, made in our year-long class, quilted by Robin Price

Denise P--love this idea, Christmas quilts for  her 3 little granddaughters

Marianne C--cardinal quilt for her mother

Rhoda J--Don't Be Koi--great use of a panel

Vicky C--Hunter's Star made at a retreat for deaf quilters
There were door prizes for the lucky ones and lots of fun:

What did the Gingerbread Man put on his bed?

Cookie sheets!

What happened to Santa when he got too close to the fire?

He became Krisp Kringle!

You get the idea, right? We laughed a lot.

Lest you think I haven't been productive, here is my Tiny Tree--a quick, free pattern from Temecula Quilt Company.  The blocks are 2.25" finished, the quilt is about 12" x 14"--made up very quickly:

This week I started quilting my Sizzle Cool--this is so much fun!

I have a little baking to do but not too much. We get to enjoy Christmas day with our sons, their women, and our two adorable grandkids, Stella and Sam--so grateful!

May you all have a wonderful holiday season, however you and your loved ones celebrate. And if it's a quiet time for you, that's OK too.

Santa's watching...:

Let's quilt!
