As some of you know I am a member of the Quilters Anonymous chapter of the Arizona Quilters Guild. Tonight was our Christmas party and I had such a wonderful time.
This is where I sat. Our hostess did a magnificent job of decorating the table.
It was a potluck party and there was a ton of yummy food however I was so concerned w/getting as much of that yummy food in my belly as quickly as possible, that I forgot to take a pic.
We played a gift exchange game. Whoever wanted to participate had to bring something handmade by them. This is what I made for the exchange. A pin cushion, thread/scrap catcher. I hope the recipient loves it as much as I love mine.
We sat in a giant circle and someone read a story over the microphone. Whenever we heard the word “left”, we passed the gift we were holding to the left, and when we heard the word “right”, we passed the gift we were holding to the right. It was a hoot! Then we went around the circle to show our gifts and tell who made them.
I got this adorable tote bag with Christmas colored mustaches on it. It’s lined w/my favorite color and w/the same exact fabric I used to line a bag I made for myself!
Here’s a pic of all my goodies together.
Are you having any fun this holiday season?
Now it’s your time to share about whatever you want.

This party looks like it was such fun! I love your pin cushion/scrap catcher. Someone gave one to me years ago (at a Christmas quilting party, too, I think!) and I still use it everyday. It's a beautiful and useful gift! Happy weekend!!
What a fun time! Makes me wish I still lived in Goodyear to join you 🙂
