December Meeting

Our December meeting is always so much fun. We had a potluck dinner, a pin cushion swap, and such lovely projects were shared. First here's a couple of shots of what we ate and there was much, much more. Our ladies are such great cooks! We are hoping to add a recipe tab soon, so ladies be sure to send your recipes!

 Now for the really fun part...sharing! Someone brought this lovely quilt, but they are hiding so I'm not sure who it belongs to.
Josephine brought this lovely holly quilt.
Ruth makes stocking for everyone in her family. Here are the latest two.
Marsha shared her beautiful hand embroidered table cloth.
 Maureen showed us two cute bags she made as gifts.
 Cathie shared three lovely projects.

 Becky shared a wonderful Christmas apron and played Santa to us all. She very generously made us each a towel with a crocheted top. Thank you so much Becky!!!!

I promised picture of our new block of the month that we will be working on this year. First is the calendar base and January foundation pieced block.
 Second is the traditionally pieced block. 
 The unfinished sized of the blocks including the border is 14 inches. If you decide to use your block for the calender the finished size when bound is still 14 inches. If you are putting your blocks in a quilt your finished block including the border will measure 13 1/2 inches. Be sure to bring your blocks to meeting. We would all like to see how yours turned out!

What a fun time I'm sure all of you had! Hope that I can come back and enjoy some of the meetings in 2011! My life has been way busy with babysitting grandchildren which has been very time consuming. Thanks for the wonderful blog! Donna Bradshaw
