What a week-end---three parties. We started off with the party for our Tuesday Sit and Sew. We played games and worked on our projects and ate soup and salad and cookies. What a fun time. We played Quilto (like Bingo) and Fat Quarter Left, Right and Center game. We had a wonderful Left, Right Story to mix up the gifts for the gift exchange. The gift I received is the first picture. Isn't it just wonderful?! I love it! It was made by Linda.
The second party was our Life Group (aka Sunday School) party which was a lovely pot luck dinner and Chinese white elephant gift exchange and there were some good white elephant gifts!!! Mine was a sushi set which I promptly gave away to a gal who said her son loved sushi---there you go---someone could actually use it!!!! We all spend the evening laughing! Laughter is good for the soul!
The third party was our DFW Gang party. We all met online on a forum---the forum is now called "The Quilting Bee." We get together quite often and this was our special Christmas Party! We played games and had door prizes, ate a light lunch and all in all had a great fun time being together! We played Fat Quarter Left, Right and Center and I was the lucky winner of 24 green Fat Quarters!!! Yippee!!! That's me and my loot in the second picture. In the third picture is Kitty and her pile of red Fat Quarters from the other game of Fat Quarter Left, Right and Center. She was a little more creative showing hers off!
We were so happy to have 2 wonderful guests at our party--Sheryl flew in from St. Louis to join us---she is a dear friend that has visited us before and it's always a joy to see her and catch up on visiting! Also joining us was applique pattern-maker Sindy Rodemayer of Fat Cat Patterns. What a dear lady---she was a surprise for Sheryl, who is our queen of applique. We had a great visit with her. Her charming daughter joined us, too. We had our party at Quilt Mercantile, which is my favorite quilt store. They were the most gracious hosts and stayed open longer for us to have our party---we do thank them!!!!
All in all a wonderful weekend, but now if you will excuse me, I think I need a nap!
Let quilting help you make someone smile!
