One of our members, Sandy, was playing Christmas music on the piano as everyone was arriving.
There was a LOT of food! Meatballs, barbecue, turkey, chicken casserole, beans, scalloped potatoes, and much, much more.
A table dedicated to
holiday weight gain desserts!
Our gift exchange was "an ornament that you make yourself". The exchange was a game, which when your number was called, you could either choose a wrapped package from the table or "steal" one from someone else. The thing was... all packages remained wrapped until the end, so you couldn't tell if you were stealing something good or not!
When they were opened, it turned out that they were all good. Very creative work!
Here are a few of the ornaments. The one I received is on the right in this photo.
My friend, Carol, contributed to the merriment by wearing this Christmas outfit she made.
Of course there was time for socializing.
Who knew that quilters could have so much fun?
Really, It is a great group. I am glad I joined.
