PTQ Christmas Party 12/6/08

Dear Patty Patchwork,

At our last meeting we met at Judy's house. She had it decorated for Christmas. She welcomed everyone and presented Sharon as our outgoing president with a gift certificate to pamper herself when she has a chance to have a manicure and pedicure.

Mary Ann and Derendia explained their project for Jan. and handed out the worksheet of material lists.

The new year will bring a few changes. We have asked the members to fill out a sheet about themselves and about the guild. We also asked everyone that would like to participate in the block lottery to make two blocks. The blocks will be made in the pattern of your choice but are to be made one with black and white prints plus one color and the other is to be made of yellow and blue. This will give us two sets of quilt blocks to give away.

The guests played dirty Santa and had great fun swapping presents over and over. The ones who brought their signature squares exchanged them and the rest will exchange at a later meeting. We all sampled a variety of dishes and enjoyed them. The guests parted with a sample of the pecans Judy had all over her yard and warm wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Well this is my last installment of the meeting notes as I will take the position of vice president and our new secretary will post in her very own style. It has been an honor letting you know about our guild's news and have you read my words.
Well sew long,
Katie O'Possum
