I went to my first Christmas gathering this week. My Kingdom Quilters group met for lunch and fellowship this past Thursday. For one of our exchanges, we were to bring along four fat quarters..... you bring 4... you get 4. These are the FQ's that I received. I was lucky enough to get 5 FQ's. The red was added for a little pop. Now we will all take our 4 FQ's and make whatever we want with them and will reveal our projects at our June meeting. Six months should be enough time to make something, even for me. ;)
I forgot to take of picture of the FQ's that I brought to exchange .... they were in blues and greens. I'll be excited to see what Fran makes with them next June.
I made some goody gifts too. I started with some yard sticks and cut them up to make little boxes.
Filled them with some sewing items and wrapped them in a yardstick design FQ.
I keep saying that I'm all done with Christmas prep, but I still have a small amount of wrapping and have two more gifts to mail out. I want this done and ready to go out first thing Monday so that I won't have to be standing in looooooong post office lines. I'm a bit of a scrooge when it comes to standing in lines.....Bah Humbug! Oh.... and I'm still eking out Christmas cards. At least these can just be put in the mailbox and they will be on their way. I'm almost done....really, I am! How about you?
