The day started out pouring rain. Even with the rain and flooding, we all made it up to Olympia to be at Teri's house for our yearly party.
This is another block that goes with the quilt we are working on.
Blocks where due at the party, so we got a few turned in.
Each block is done differently.
We all were enjoying the view of all the blocks.
Deanna was helping in the kitchen, while our new "coordinator" Sue was chatting with her.
We all gathered and chatted before our lunch and gift exchange. The only member missing was Kathy W.
Cis was sharing her table runner she made for her daughter. Sharon and Barb with checking it out.
Lynn showed the quilt she was working on. She was sending it off to her Aunt for Christmas. The tails are the binding.
Our potluck lunch was awesome and we all sat and visited.
Chatted about everything!
Then we all gathered in the living room to open our gifts.
Barb was #1 and picked her gift.
More gifts where opened with NO ONE stealing the gifts! Sharon and Cil looking on.
Lynn picked her gift as #3.
Barb did take Sharon's gift - as she was #1.
Next was picking names to see who wanted the gifts on the table. Deanna got the first choice.
JoAnn got her pick as well.
Susy, Deanna, Teri, Sharon and Kathy H. all enjoying Deanna's story!

A good time was had by all. A big Thank You to Joyce for taking all the photos! There were many to pick through to post.
We all wished each other a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Our next meeting will be January 14, 2016 - We all are looking forward to being back together. Come join us if your in town!
