When two of my quilt friends and I went to a quilt show in France this past September, we bought an adorable stitching pattern together to use for a SAL. It had to wait until my move to the new house was behind us but had decided to invite them both here for a SAL Christmas tea.
I set the table early this morning including a little table gift for them. The heart ornaments at each place were for them to take home.
Christmas toasts with pesto and parma ham
Dutch egg ramekins
Lemon kwark ice
Dark chocolate peanut clusters
Bep, Saskia and I got down to work although at times we could not see to stitch while we were laughing so very much. I just love these ladies! We never fail to have great fun together.
This is the pattern we bought at the market of the quilt show. There were many wonderful designers there but this is one we simply could not resist!
And here is our start to the SAL. We will get together again at the end of January for the next pillow to be started. I am exhausted and feeling pain from having done so much but it is a good feeling to have been able to treat some friends to a fun day.
