Yesterday was a fabulously festive day. The Layton Quilters had their Christmas party and we celebrated the fact that we have been a guild for 20 years. We had past presidents come and be honored. There was a pillow exchange. I received this cute little snowman pillow from my dear friend, Jean, one of your founding members.
Gifts were exchanged. I love this stitchery I received from Michelle. Though it has quite a stir at my home. DD asked me why it said sexy. Her friend thought the same thing. As did my hubby. I guess I’m just a sexy sewer. hee hee.
I also received this clever gift; a recipe holder made out of a spool.
And this gorgeous fabric.
It was a wonderful party. I ‘sew’ enjoy my quilting buddies.
Then later that night I was invited to go to the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert. It was amazing. The music, stories, and dancing made for an unforgettable performance. There was an organ solo that I absolutely loved. Watching the organists feet dance on the pedals on the big screen was delightful. If you get the chance to go I would so recommend you do. If you can’t make a note to yourself to watch it next year on PBS you won’t be disappointed.
I hope all your holiday festivities are going well.
What fun! I thought the comments about the embroidery were pretty funny! Now it will really make you smile every time you look at it! A lot of fun gifts! Thanks for sharing! Trudy
I used to love the holiday concert at the church we attended in CA, complete with bell choir. Music in a church during the holidays is so peaceful. Your gifts are very nice.
It sounds like it was a wonderful party! I must admit that I initially thought the same thing when I read the stitchery. Of course you are!!!!!
Wow 20 years! How fun! Love the little gifts!
Parties are lovely at this time of year – so glad you enjoyed – thanks for showing!
Hugs – Lurline♥
HI Emily – I was invited to the Guild party (for some reason), but when I showed up I found out the date was printed wrong on the invite – and I couldn't go back on the right day. I was sorry to have missed it cuz it looks like you had fun.
