Before we get the party started, a little foodie treat. Remember when I made the Christmas pudding vodka, I had all that boozy fruit left over? Well, Malcolm turned it into a sort of strudel, using filo pastry - delicious!
so, fortified with a large helping of strudel (and cream!) I picked up Maureen and we headed over to Kelso for an evening filled with oooohs and aaahs - and lots of laughter! We played two silly games, during which the fat quarters we had taken were passed round, swapped, and fought over. Our sides were sore with laughter by the time the second game finished ........ anyone peeking in the window would have wondered what illegal substances these mostly middle-aged ladies had been imbibing, to cause such hilarity! No photos were taken of that part of the evening, to protect reputations, but there are lots of photos of the show and tell, so let's get started. First, Ivy, who does a lot with folded Japanese patchwork and hexagons
Kathleen had several quilts
next was Caroline
Mary's child's quilt
Maureen had Santas
then it was me! Anne S. took some photos for (of) me
Katy's Santa was too small to be seen from across the room, so here he is sitting on my knee
Chris, who lives just down the road from me, was next with a super child's quilt
Doreen had a table runner and a quilt
Ann had two quilts
Sheila and her Santa
this is Sandra, hidden behind her quilts (and oh dear, I managed to cut the top of her head off!)
Moira and her fun child's quilt
Sheena with her little elephant
and last, Lesley with her cushion
there were lots more that I didn't manage to get photos of - lots and lots of super work! The evening ended with a lovely supper laid on by the committee, but I was too busy blethering (and eating) to take a photo!
However, I do have some food to show you - our lunch today. Malcolm had a cheese and pickle toastie
and I had a coronation chicken wrap - delicious!
