Fabulous Festive Day

Yesterday was a fabulously festive day.  The Layton Quilters had their Christmas party and we celebrated the fact that we have been a guild for 20 years.  We had past presidents come and be honored.  There was a pillow exchange.   I received this cute little snowman pillow from my dear friend, Jean, one of your founding members.
  Gifts were exchanged.  I love this stitchery I received from Michelle.  Though it has quite a stir at my home.  DD asked me why it said sexy.  Her friend thought the same thing.  As did my hubby.  I guess I'm just a sexy sewer.  hee hee.
I also received this clever gift; a recipe holder made out of a spool.

And this gorgeous fabric.

It was a wonderful party.  I 'sew' enjoy my quilting buddies.

Then later that night I was invited to go to the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert.  It was amazing.  The music, stories, and dancing made for an unforgettable performance.  There was an organ solo that I absolutely loved.  Watching the organists feet dance on the pedals on the big screen was delightful.  If you get the chance to go I would so recommend you do.  If you can't make a note to yourself to watch it next year on PBS you won't be disappointed.

I hope all your holiday festivities are going well.
Merry Christmas!


  1. What fun! I thought the comments about the embroidery were pretty funny! Now it will really make you smile every time you look at it! A lot of fun gifts! Thanks for sharing! Trudy

  2. I used to love the holiday concert at the church we attended in CA, complete with bell choir. Music in a church during the holidays is so peaceful. Your gifts are very nice.

  3. It sounds like it was a wonderful party! I must admit that I initially thought the same thing when I read the stitchery. Of course you are!!!!!

  4. Wow 20 years! How fun! Love the little gifts!

  5. Parties are lovely at this time of year - so glad you enjoyed - thanks for showing!
