GUILD CHRISTMAS PARTY


Our guild Christmas party was this week.  The committee did a wonderful job!  Here's how the tables looked. 





Love those little long john place favors.  Santa ran out of stockings, so we got long underwear stuffed with candy instead.  Sorry about that blurry front close up!  The saying is, "We looked for a stocking, but couldn't find a spare................So we ended up stuffing Santa's Long John Underwear!"  One member made all of them from felt.

There was an elf quilt challenge.  My friend Jodi won a prize for hers :)


Isn't it just the cutest?  Here are a few of the others.


 
 
This is the Christmas raffle quilt --  Sunbonnet Sue and Sam celebrating Christmas.  They made over $700 on it.  The money will be donated to the local 'Shop With a Cop' program.


It was so nice to dress up, meet with friends, and have a wonderful meal served to us, all in a lovely country club setting.  I do need to mention that we still call it a Christmas luncheon, and we still say grace before eating.  I love it!  We also say the Pledge of Allegiance before our meetings too.  I'm old fashioned that way and proud of it.

This picture has nothing to do with the rest of this post.  It's my granddaughter, Corina Rose and me, showing off our 'matching' pink Minnetonka moccasins.  We wore them on Thanksgiving.



Hope all my readers are having fun with preparing for the holidays, whatever you are up to.

Those long johns are just the cutest. Are they hand made or purchased?
The elf quilts and raffle quilts are adorable. It would have been hard to pick just one winner of the challenge.

Sounds like you had lots of fun at the party and the group made money too. The quilt pieces are fabulous and the quilt that brought in $700 is incredible.

What adorable favors. How many members in your guild? I have been programs chair a few times and I wouldn't want to make one of these for each member. OMGosh. Very nice.
