Quilters Christmas Party
Sew Cal Gal is having a Christmas party, with lots of great prizes!
We had our office Christmas party last Friday. Actually, this was party number 1. Our team reserved space in a restaurant, and went out after work for drinks and nibblies. It was great fun. I work with a great group of gals!
Party number 2 is a building-wide lunch, complete with our IT guy dressed up as Santa. What a hoot! That is this week, I think. (I have a ticket - I'll have to check that to make sure I don't miss it.)
Party number 3 is our monthly "special lunch" - that celebrates the month's birthdays. Usually, we all bring our own lunches, and one person brings a special dessert. This month, we are all chipping in for pizza, and the lunch will have a combination birthday / Christmas theme.
Lots of fun!
To keep this quilty, I'll show you my Christmas quilts. (I can't show you any decorations, as I have none up yet!)
This is a tablerunner that I made from a Patrick Lose pattern. I love the whimsy of it!
This is a panel that I used for my first free motion quilting class. Sorry about the fuzzy picture! I got really good at stippling when I fmq'd the sky. Real good! Too bad I didn't quilt the rest of the quilt that heavily - the bottom is wavy as a result of the difference in the quilting density. Oh well - I learned a lesson and the quilt is still cute on the wall.
And finally, the tree skirt.
And that's it for my Christmas craftiness! I'm looking forward to seeing what others have done.
