December 18, 2014

Today was our "4th Thursday" meeting. Since Christmas Day is our meeting date, we changed our date to today.

We had 6 members show up. Two that said they wouldn't make it, but they showed up anyway!

Susy made these outfits for her grandchildren. There were two of these. She was telling us how they love to dress up. Really cool knight outfits!

Kathy H made this block for the blocks we "raffled" off last week. Cis won the blocks and was thrilled to find three of the blocks waiting for her at the shop.

Barb made this one for her. (Sorry it's sideways)

Sue made this block. She was finishing it up today.

Kathy W was taking out her blocks that she was making for her Seahawk quilt. She didn't like the green she had used, and wanted to do another pattern. So, he took her stitches out of the blocks and "made a mess" with the threads. Not only were the threads all over the table, she was wearing them! We just had to tease her about all the work she tore apart!

The fabric for our Spring quilt has been bought. We cut some blocks for those that want to make a block for the March potluck meeting. More blocks will be cut later. Those that were there, took the block to work with. We decided that if anyone wants to make another block, they can buy the fabric at $1.25.

It was a good meeting and we all had a great time.

Christmas Party December 12, 2014

Today was our Christmas Party! We all gathered at Cil's house. There were 14 members attending.

Cil had the house decorated for the season! It was awesome!

Here houses, where in an awesome setting!

Table set for all!

We all enjoyed our potluck. We had plenty of food for all.

After lunch we all gathered in the living room for our drawings! We had plenty of blocks - 11 were present and 4 are still to come. We drew for the winner - Cis won! She got all the blocks. Sorry, missed taking a photo of all the blocks.

We drew for the free one year membership with TAS. Sharon won that price!

We then exchanged our gifts, with little stealing going on. Everyone had a great time. We all enjoyed everyone's company! Then we talked about our next block exchange.

For our March Potluck, the block rules are as follows:

Theme:                       Spring
Background:               Will be proved after Dec 19's meeting
Colors:                        Spring colors - brights, true colors, or what each person sees as spring.
Size:                            12 1/2" unfinished

The background will be purchased next week. Lynn will cut the fabric into 13" blocks and have them ready for the meeting in January. Members can make as many blocks as they like. Names will go in a drawing at our next potluck for the winner. Todays winner is not eligible to win the next set of block, but can contribute to the blocks.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting: December 19, 2014.
