Yesterday, I attended the Christmas party for our day quilt guild. I really think these ladies are so great...as women, as quilters and just nice folks! Several of the 'older' members were so instrumental in teaching me so much of what I know today! They are so generous with their time and knowledge and love sharing what they know!
Anyway, the meeting started around 11 with our show and tell..a little business....little gabbing!
...then some great food! The party was held at an Italian restaurant, Ruggeros, The menu was chicken Caesar salad (which was delicious!) and baked mostaccioli! (yum!). Dessert was your choice of vanilla ice cream or carrot cake...yea, I went for the cake! Anyway, it was a nice time visiting and eating!
I used to belong to two quilt guilds (one day and one night), and two art/fiber groups (one day and one night). I decided several, several years ago to give up the night guild as well as the art group that met at night. I don't like leaving for a meeting in the late afternoon and being out at night when you have to drive home in the dark (when you're leaving a meeting at 9 or 10 p.m. to head home!)
I still attend the day quilt guild meeting a few times in the spring/summer as well as attend our monthly fiber art group...that's the next 'party time'. We meet next Monday and it is our last get together for the year! I enjoy our small group of five as each member is so talented and we inspire each other plus we meet during the day! Yep, I'm getting old!!!
