Guild Christmas Party



Deer camp broke up Sunday with the remnants of hunting left for the clean-up. Empty beer boxes, photos on the table from the 'deer cam' (hunting is high tech now) and time out taken to watch the Packer game, Brett's Jets.










And the retreat was quickly transformed to Christmas. O.K., forget the "quickly" part. It actually took all of two weeks.
The scene was set.......
The halls were decked.......








The candles in the windows to welcome the weary travelers......
The homefires burning.......

The candlelight glow warming the room....


Goodies for all......



The table was set......thanks Jenell and Sandy




Gifts were wrapped with care......

Each year our Piecemaker's Quilt Guild meets the first monday of December to get together, exchange a little something that looks homemade (no pressure here), bring an hor d'oeuvre to share, and enjoy each other's company.




We also plan for the new year - each volunteering where we can. No officers, no rules, no guidelines or bylaws. Just lots of relaxing fun. Oh, and don't forget Show 'n Tell.
Even on Party night, there were some great sharing of the latest treasures. Some soon to be given as gifts, I'm sure.
This weekend I get to be a guest at my own retreat again. I can't wait! Wine by the fireplace, hand projects and good conversation. That is what I look forward to. And marathon piecing of course!
Oh yeah, on to show 'n tell........................

There was old needlepunch and new. The round project was done with women's silk stockings pre-WWII.
Take time for YOU as the whoopla gets crazy! Patsy
