Yesterday was the Needler's Holiday Party. Needlers is a small group of friends who meet 3 times a month to sew together at the Parsipanny Library. We are an off shoot group from the Garden State Quilters, although you do not have to be guild member to be in the Needler's group.
I made my favorite potluck dish; deviled eggs.
Here is a little trick I use when I have to remember to bring something important. I put my car keys on top of the item to bring. In this case, it was my eggs, which were in the fridge. I hate to admit, but there have been times when I've left the house forgetting something, and this trick really works for me.
At the party, we enjoyed lots of great food:
Here is the grab bag table. This year we decided to exchange gently used quilt related books. It was a really great idea and didn't require any shopping - yea! Under the table are bags of food that we collected for the food pantry.
Here are quilts that we brought to decorate our room. I can't believe I did it again. I forgot to take a photo of the display of little quilts! Darn! I thought I was doing well, but I must have gotten distracted - again. :(
Here is Sue's tree skirt:
This was pieced by Shar's son.
This is mine, made several years ago.
Janes's little tree skirt.
Barbara C's collection that she decorates her mother's room with. Cute pink and black Christmas fabrics.
Barbara C's elegant blue quilt.
Pretty blue trees on the back.
This is Mary Ann's quilt for her grand-daughter. So cute! and original!
Getting ready for the book grab bag -
Thanks for a fun day ladies!
