Give Away Day 7 & The Material Girl's Chirstmas Party!!



I am aways amazed by these incredible light shows...I think a software engineer must be excited when the holidays roll around.  What I am curious about is if the neighbors are ready to pull their hair out by New Years??? lol

Remember when I finished this Crabapple Hill stitchery and quilt?  I loved this wonderful piece and had it professionally framed in hopes that someone in my family tree will think it is valuable...lol


The pattern is up for grabs and you still have one more day to leave a comment on the Day 6 Give Away!

The Material Girls had a Christmas party and I had to wear my very best holiday hat which HH bought for me a few years ago...as you can see the star on top bobs up and down :)

We all bring 4 fat quarters which are put into an container of some sort and then the stealing begins!!!

Some friendships survive the stealing...

...and some can be a little more painful, lol

But overall the event was fun, the potluck delish...and, we left still friends!

 I got this adorable snowman cookie jar!

Filled with 4 chicken fat quarters which I think will make a cute table runner!

    I remember the Dresden challenge and how much I loved your work and the use of the taupes. Yum! I love to make this too...and thank you for sharing the photo of your beautiful work again!
    We know lights set to Let It Go were inevitable didn't we? Really Cool! Love the snowflakes and trees...Elsa as a Cactus...I guess she was a bit prickly...

  9. I'm thinking that I like the idea of the fat quarter exchange. We gift each other with "something out of your sewing room". As you can imagine this varies quite a bit...some really cool stuff and some, well, NOT very cool stuff! ;0)
