It Was a Party!

Just got home from partying heartily with the quilt guild members. Tonight was the guild's annual holiday dinner.
Here was the centerpiece for our table:


And here's dinner. Provided by a Mediterranean restaurant. It was pretty yummy.

I'd have enjoyed my baklava more if the nuts had all been shelled. Luckily I am a cautious nibbler where nuts are concerned, so I caught it without having to break a tooth.

We all brought fabric postcards to share. They were quite interesting--some of them were more "postcardy" than others.

After dinner, we played a game with them which involved passing them left and right and getting thoroughly confused. That way, we wound up leaving with a different card than the one we'd brought.



Some people had more fun than others.

(This group is saying Hi to Amy!)


So is the next one.

There were prizes, too. Each table contributed a basket full of quilt-related goodies.

This is the one from our table.


Pretty hefty basket--loads of fabric.


There are pictures of the other baskets, as well as other table centerpieces and more postcards on my Flickr page--click on the badge on the right to get there.


The guild does an Opportunity Quilt every year, and sells tickets all year long.

Usually the winner is someone who needs to be notified and we never get to see how he/she reacts. Well, not tonight.


Annette won! She's a very active guild member, and you can tell from that grin how delighted she is!


Want to see next year's quilt?


Okay.


Here it is:

Back art.

Tickets will go on sale as soon as they're printed!
