One of the gatherings I had early in December was a group of my fiber Sisterhood friends. The weather was fairly crappy in December and that particular day was no expection which kept several of the sisters from attending - we missed them so much that day. We enjoyed a great lunch with lots of laughs.
We decided at a very late date to do a pin cushion swap at the gathering - so you didn't have to make it if you didn't want to or have the time to do so - you could purchase one if that worked better. Each person was assigned a number for drawing purposes for the swap. One of the sisters did a darling tag for her package with her number on it - how cute is this
just love that idea - very clever sister Joyce
Then pin cushions were exchanged and here's the group of them - how cute are they and all so different
Here were a couple of fun things from show and tell of that gathering - first off an adorable apron that she made - one of a few she was making for her girls for Christmas - bad picture but cute apron - love those colors
how dang adorable is this baby quilt - it's a Reets Rags to Stitches pattern called Lollipop Hill
Such a sweet quilt this is going to be - it's all needle turned applique and this sister is very good at it. I could have sworn I took more pictures - but this is what I've got. I have more from other gatherings that I will share over the course of the month.
The weather here this weekend is going to be brutally cold and school has already been cancelled for Monday. So it's a good weekend to hunker down and get some stitching done. Stay warm if your weather is as wild as ours.
