Tuesday night was our guild's annual Christmas party. I must say, it is something I look forward to every year. Good food, good friends and tons of good laughs!
This year we had a potholder exchange instead of a quilt block exchange. We were all given a piece of Insulbright and were told to make a potholder with a Christmas theme or winter theme. This is the one I made. Do you get it?
Here are all the potholders. So many different designs.
We were asked to vote for the "Best in Show." The winner would get this awesome hat box filled with lots of goodies. The best in show was made by Julie. It is on the bottom row. It is the pinwheel with the red, green and white. Funny...it matches the box doesn't it? :)
My friend, Peggy, made this one. It was my favorite. I laughed so hard!
We also had our annual gift exchange/steal. Look at all this loot!
This is how I wrapped my gift. I used a measuring tape as a bow. Whatcha think?
If you have never done this before, here is a quick explanation. Everyone draws a number, which is the order in which you may select a gift. You open the gift and show everyone what is inside. The next person may select another gift to open or they may steal a gift that someone else has opened. We limit the number of "owners" to three as the stealing would get crazy with this rowdy bunch! ;) There were times during this whole adventure when I had tears rolling down my face from laughing so much. It was so much fun!
Indeed, a good time was had by all as you can see from this photo of Jackie. :) :) :)
Have a fun weekend!
