RANDOM THURSDAY

This time of year means parties and presents and way too much food! I hosted our shops' staff dinner again this year and I had a full house.

Remember this little pile of goodies ?


It became these



I made each of the staff a little thread catcher

they look so cute all lined up!


Each of the ladies had one at their spot when they arrived


After dinner we gathered for a group photo. I am privileged to work with a great bunch of ladies !

What a lovely time seems to be had by all!! How lovely to enjoy each other's company, delightful table setting and the pieces of de resistance, those beautiful thread catchers!!

Lorna McMahon said...

What a great pic! It must be fun to get together with such a lovely group of ladies and sew! Your thread catchers were certainly beautiful gifts.

Debbie said...

I'm smiling here because I made a whole bunch of thread catchers too! Ten of them to be exact, all entirely hand sewn, collapsible, thread catchers. Monday evening I'm giving them, wrapped in Christmas paper, to the ten women who have helped me organize and lead the Central Florida MQG over the past 14 months. I'm stepping down as chapter leader, so this is my thank you to them. It's pretty ironic that we made the same thing for special people in our lives!

what a great idea, I bet they loved them. How is the Christmas tree quilt coming along? Thanks for the tree explaination, I think that may be a project for next year!!!

They are such pretty gifts--I'm sure they were all well loved! I'm still trying to figure out how you are so productive....
