Christmas Banquet

 Our Christmas banquet was held at the Fairway Motel this year and it was a beautiful meal.  To start the show and tell, Mary showed her folded star  hot plate,

 and her napkins ..she's ready for Christmas.
Elly found this panel in her closet and decided it was time to quilt it.....
 and she, too, made the folded napkins.
 Joan made this nautical themed quilt for a new baby. She drew the patterns and appliqued them...a talented lady.

 Bea made this log cabin quilt this summer and just got it back all quilted.

 Jean made the folded star and folded napkins as well...and then.....
she showed us this cuddle quilt she made for the program. She's been one of the most prolific cuddle quilt makers in our guild.
 Cynthia is in the pillow making mold and this is a new one she made.
 Judith got her fractured panel done and quilted....a really nice job.
 Ann had a book panel and put it all together for a baby to chew on , drool on and handle easily.  A fun project.
Leigh made this fabric tree and decided it was a little too "friggy" to suit her.
 This bag pattern is on the lining of certain batting and is a quilt as you go pattern.
 She called this pattern Sunrise and it is stunning.
 Gail did some cross stitch on this sweet sweater.
 Mary made this wall hanging with small log cabins and then appliqued the letters.  Great job, Mary!
 Marilyn is hiding behind her folded star....
and these are some of her dozen sets of folded napkins.  Never do things by half measures, right Marilyn.
 Beth made this "to order" tea cozy was requested to be black but she just had to add a little colour.
The she made this pocket pack for a walker. Can hold a water bottle and 'stuff'.
 Janice made this stunning tree skirt. Not only are the colours gorgeous it has little wee presents all around . What a wonderful tree skirt.
 Joanne  is one of our newbies and she's well and truly hooked.  Here's her table runner....lovely greys and cream.
 Jeannie found these sweet little stockings that have little zippers in them...perfect to insert gift cards.  Ever neat!!
