Good Company, Good Food

What a busy day!  

I woke up late.  It’s my first day off, what else did you expect?  ha ha ha

I got started on a delicious chicken stew.   I will post it later this week for my weekly recipe.  Anyway, I was cooking my stew, getting ready to add the last few ingredients, at the end of the cooking process and my phone rings.

It’s my friend Charlotte, asking me if I was going to help decorate the OEM building for our quilt guild’s Christmas party today.

I totally forgot, I was suppose to meet her at 2:00 this afternoon.  As a matter of fact, I didn’t even think about what day it was, this morning.  So I finished up my stew and headed over to the OEM building.

This evening we had our Christmas party.

Good company…

Here are the first of the members to arrive.  🙂

Good food….
A  local  restaurant, The Grape Vine, catered our  meal.

The table settings…

These are the napkins, folded up like little Christmas trees.  They were paired with an embroidered pin/ornament.  We also placed a fabric bundle to go with each one.
We played “dirty santa” with fat quarters.  The challenge is to create something with the fat quarter you wind up with, and bring it to the next Christmas party, to show off.
The fat quarter I ended up with, is a cute snowman print.
In regard to ornaments, handcrafted or commercial?

Well I guess that’s if for this evening.

Here’s wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!!

God bless and keep you,

My answer to yesterdays’ question…. I like real trees, but usually have an artificial or two.  🙂

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
