Celebrating Christmas Little Bit Style!

Yesterday my miniature quilt group, The Little Bits, had our annual Christmas luncheon at Leota's house.  We had SUCH a good time, as always.  I just love these ladies :)

We started off with a delicious potluck salad luncheon, then moved on to Show and Tell.

This cute mini wall hanging was made by Leota.

Lois attended the glass jar class at June's last month and made this beautifully decorated jar.  The jar used to belong to her mother!  She said she's moved it several times and never knew why she kept it, but it was perfect for this project.

Eleanor has been busy with her embroidery machine and some classes she took at Hi Fashion.

She also completed her wool table runner from a class taught by June.

SSQ is doing Borders of the month instead of Blocks of the month this year and June made these wonderful scrappy "Braid" borders and gave us all the instructions.  She said it took longer to cut the strips than it did to sew them together.

Sherida brought her Hoffman Challenge award winning purse!  It traveled for a year and was displayed all over the country.  Apparently the new Hoffman Challenge is underway - I will have to go look it up online and see what the fabric looks like!

This purse is SO cute.

Sherida also made this adorable Christmas stocking for her sister's foreign exchange student who is from Korea.

AND (Sherida has been busy) she made this fantastic black, white and gold quilt - very geometric - I love it!

On a trip recently Sherida found these Zentangled notecards.  These are amazing!  I'm wondering if the artist zentangled them in a larger format and then reduced them on a copy machine?  If not, she must have very good eyesight :)  I love these.

This is all that was on the back of the card.  One might be able to google this and order some :)
We then exchanged Christmas gifts!  We drew names a couple of months ago - I had Eleanor and she had me!  She gave me this cute Redwork Mitten ornament kit, a tea towel that she embroidered on her machine and a handmade wooden needle case that is just beautiful - oh and some chocolate kisses.

It was a wonderful afternoon and absolutely delightful friends!

Oh, I have to tell an Annie story.  Max gave Annie a really pretty shawl that she had crocheted with soft wool yarn.  We were all oohing and ahhing over it and someone told Annie that she could snuggle up with it and take a nap.  Without missing a beat Annie said, "Well I will wear it to church and do just that!"
