On Monday night we had a Christmas Gathering at the Marsh Store
in Coldstream. Shirley put on a fantastic dinner for the five of us.
When we arrived, she had a table all set up in the classroom of the Quilt shop with her good Christmas china, candlelight and some great appetizers. We had a choice of red or white wine. For the main course, Shirley made a wonderful salad to compliment the spinach and onion pie that she made. We all enjoyed the meal tremendously! For desert, Shirley made a Chocolate truffle cake that was just awesome so we enjoyed that with some coffee. Thank you so much Shirley!
Shirley had planned a project for our night of sewing. She designed a Christmas placemat and we all made four placemats using the stack and wack method. Shirley brought out her stash of Christmas fabric and let us all choose which fabric we would like to make our placemats out of. There was something for everyone, as we all have unique tastes in fabrics. This was a super fast project.
Seeing we all had such a great time, we have decided to make this Christmas Gathering a yearly event.
Mary was the photographer, so she didn't make it into the picture, but there was five of us that got together to enjoy the evening.
Merry Christmas~Janet
