Looking back - part one

In the coming days, I am going to reflect back over 2012 and what I accomplished or not as the case may be. I am working on setting goals for next year and working on. I have a number of fun projects planned.

 Each year, one of the projects I start working on in December is samples for our quilt group theme project. The project for 2013 is going to be such fun and has a connection back to the US and a blogging friend. But that will be revealed in January. In the meantime, here are some photos from our annual Christmas party...


This year, I asked the ladies to split up in little teams and plan out a three course sit down dinner. One team came early the day of the dinner and helped me to tranform my living room into a huge dining area. We lit candles everywhere and it created a really magical atmosphere.

Don't forget you can click on the collages to enlarge them.


Our gift exchange theme of Make Do and Mend really brought out the ladies creative sides. There was a great deal of ooohhhing and aaahhhing that evening.


A number of the ladies brought their advent quilts along for us to see them all together. Now each December, this year will be remembered as each of us uses our own advent quilt.


See you again on December 31st with a review of my projects from this year...

  3. It sure is a good thing you have such a large living room. It sure was a beautiful table. I know how much these ladies like to have fun and laugh so I know it was great. You were already working on your next quilt group project yesterday when we were on skype. You are one very busy elf.
    Love you, Mom

  6. My eye gravitated right to the "Quilt" framed piece in the second collage. I love it! What fun that would be to reproduce. It's great that you have a group of ladies to share your love of quilting with.
