A Lovely Christmas Party!

 The Guild had our annual Christmas party for our December meeting, but with a pandemic twist.  Instead of a potluck, the food was provided by the guild.  We had tasty breakfast pizza (from our local Tops Market) with fruit and Dunkin' Donuts.  It meant less variety, but also less work for the members in attendance- who didn't seem to mind not having to cook!

MANY thanks to president Martha Lorshbaugh- for arranging all the food- Mary Kozub- who delivered the pizzas, hostesses Terry McGuire and Sue Chiddy- who served the goodies, Ann Renica,  and all the members who generously donated to pay for the meal.

                                      (apologies to those I caught with their mouths full!)


Before the food arrived, we enjoyed our monthly show and tell- always the best part of any guild meeting! I apologize for the lack of details in the descriptions.

                                                    Elaine Lemley finished this little UFO

                                               Elaine embroidered the motifs in this cozy pillow.

There are more puzzle pieces in this project, which creates a road for Elaine's grandchildren to play with!
Terry McGuire used her cricut to make these quick and easy gifts- and is willing to have other members come try it out as well!



I missed part of this one- Nancy Schraader is making alternating light and dark blocks with I spy squares to make a nice sized quilt (probably for her sweet grandson!)

Nancy is making these folded fabric ornaments- and isn't quite sure what goes in the center!
Nancy made this from left overs of a larger quilt she showed us last summer.  

Nancy made this with fabrics she got at the Plank Road flea market table last summer.

Nancy found fun buttons to mark birthdays on this growth chart for her grandson.

Mary Lowe uses "One Block Wonder" pieces as her leaders and feeders, so makes rather a lot of these.


Ann Renica picked the pink fabric for this one up at a recent guild meeting.  It is for a new great niece. 


In an effort to find her quilting mojo again, Ann made this for the "Sleep in Heavenly Peace" project the Community Service committee is now supporting.   Ann said she had forgotten how many pieces go into a larger quilt, after making so many smaller ones.  

Martha Lorshbaugh finished her Monarch from the class with Linda M Poole several years ago.

To all the guild members- please have a safe and happy holiday season!

We are looking forward to the reveal of the "Rock Paper Scissors" challenge at the January meeting- we hope to see you there!
