The gabbing came in the form of lots of quilty talk (of course) and each table got a Quilty Crossword to complete! WHAT...WE HAVE TO THINK?! Who knew that thinking could be such fun? We came up with some doozie answers, but squeeze as you might, we could not get those letters to fit into the boxes... but it was sure fun trying! And no we did not win..haha
|Here's our table...from lt to rt. Glynis, Hazel, (Carol WHERE are YOU?...missing), Delores and Sandy.|
The gobbling came in the form of partaking in some wonderful FOOD! If there is one thing that quilters KNOW how to do, it's bake and eat...and we did both nicely! Delicious!
And the gawking?..get your mind out of the gutter! No, the Chippendales did not come and entertain...besides they have GOT to be in their 90s by now! The gawking came in the form of some something much HOTTER then watching old geezers shake their bells. The Guild put out a challenge to members to make Christmas Hot Pads...no bigger than 30cm. They even supplied the silver insulating batting! The member took up this task with gusto as there were over 70 entries!
Do some gawking of your own...
Aren't they wonderful...and some of them even jingled! Anyone of these would make the PERFECT Stocking Stuffer!
Until then, let's finish off with a Christmas Song...
"O Christmas Quilt, O Christmas Quilt.....
Thy Patches stitched so tightly,
O Christmas Quilt, O Christmas Quilt,
Thy fabric shines so brightly!
From top to bottom, so warm at night,
There's only splendor for your sight.
O Christmas Quilt! O Christmas Quilt!
You're snug in bed so tightly!"
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
