November's Guild Christmas Party

Well our Christmas party was a lot of fun.  We began with a great dinner.  Our pot luck dinners are always fabulous.  These ladies know how to cook.  
We had a "white elephant" exchange.  We brought a quilting or sewing item that we were done with and wrapped it up.  We then passed it around the room to a quilting poem.

At the end of the poem we all opened up our gifts.

Of course we had show and tell.  That is the best part.  Below is Jerilu with her skeleton pillow.

Helen made a scarf and also dresser scarfs for her grand kids.

This one is a pillow case.

Now this is Lyllians round robin.  She added extra blocks and boy did it turn out spectacular.

Claudia made some noels for Christmas and this beautiful table topper below.

Claudia's fractured flowers are so nice.

This is also Claudia's.  Beautiful.

Helen has been very productive.  She made minion hats for her great grandsons.

She is also making runners for gifts.

Crystal not only made this trip around the world but also the first quilt in this post.  She does fabulous work.

Last but not least is Cheri's quilt.  It is so happy and vibrant.  Wow.

Happy Thanks Giving, Everyone.

Mr Bones

This is my pillow I just made.  I still have to quilt it and put the back on it.  It is a pattern by Better Homes and Gardens in their magazine.  It is called No Bones about It.  I didn't do the flying geese like the pattern but Jerilu did.  It is cute either way. It is a lot of fun to make. 
This one is Jerilu's.  He is almost ghostly.  I love it.

Corn Wagon Peeks

This wool pillow should get you in the mood for winter.  It is darling and simple wool appliqué.  The Corn Wagon had some new thing that caught my eye that I thought I would share.

Corn Wagon always has fun ideas of things to make.  This looks like a simple project and a great gift to make for your friends.

I love the wool crazy things.  Not only because it is made of wool but because you can all sorts of things that you love to the project.

This has to be one of Marianne Michaels hooked rugs.  She is always making amazing things.  I love her work.

I just love these pumpkins.  I have mine already cut out ready to make for next year.  You can just say that I am ahead.  Actually I cut them out before Halloween this year but life got in the way of getting all my projects done.

This is a hooked scarecrow.  So cute.

This was in the class room.  It looks like a fun project.

Another wool crazy that is for the winter.  That one is a Primitive Gatherings pattern.

Check out their shop.  It is one of my favorites.

Becky's Christmas Quilt

Becky has been working on this machine embroidered Christmas quilt.  It is amazing.  She has only one corner to go and then it is off to the quilters.  Wow.

Jerilu has made some cute Halloween decorations for her daughter.  This table topper is just one of the cute things she has finished.  She also made some eye balls to go with it.

This is one of Lana's quilts.  She made it years ago but it is still darling.

Little Gifts

Our guild members brought some of the gift ideas they have made or received.  They were fun to see.

This is a roll of toilet paper.  You just wrap some fabric around it and tuck it in the roll with a stick and some cute leaves.  Besides the leaves there is no sewing.

Look at how cute this pin cushion is.

This is one is made with a bottle cap.  

I made these candy corns.  The pattern is from a Buttermilk Basin.

This is a dish towel.

Helen makes these scissor holders.

She makes these ornaments also, for her great grand kids.

Jerilu makes these bibs.  She uses her left over batting and fabrics to make these.

This is a cute basket made with fabrics.

These are made from Lori Holts latest patterns by Jerilu.

This is made with the quilt as you go method.

This is a shoe bag for traveling.

Now I love this.  LaRetta made some of these for me for Christmas.  I use them daily.  They are made with pot holders and dish towels.  

Helen made these from scraps.
