A Stitch Club Christmas

 Our Stitch Club Christmas Party was held at Cathy's house.
She has such a flair for interior decorating!
This year's color scheme was red, aqua and white - so clean, but with a great vintage feel! 

 I love her newly finished quilt and just loved this pillow.

 Sweet little touches everywhere you look...

Cathy's Dad made all these wonderful figures for a Christmas village when Cathy was just two years old!
What a treasure!

 Aileen had some show and tell to share.
This sweet hedgehog pincushion was stitched by Aileen and finished by Jan.

And this fun truck pincushion was also a joint creation envisioned by Aileen and finished by Jan.

 We received some fun "pass around" gifts
including these two wonderful handmade, heartfelt gifts:

 by Cathy and Jan.

I brought little Temecula quilt ruler boxes for my "pass around" gifts. 

So many of the gifts were beautifully wrapped
like the pretty gift that Joan received.

 Cathy received these gorgeous mittens.

 and Jan received a stunning hand knit scarf.

I had fun wrapping Aileen's english paper piecing themed gifts in flannel fabric.

And included a handmade pincushion and pinch pocket.

In the gift exchange, my gift was from Cathy...

and I was so excited to receive the same pillow that I had been admiring in her living room :)

And this cute hot cocoa kit.
Thanks Cathy!
And thanks to all my stitch club pals!
It was another memorable Christmas Party :)
(See you on Sunday ladies!)

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.
~Ephesians 5:8-10

Blessings, Patti

What a great party. Wish we had a stitch club around here. I loved the color theme. I would have never thought of aqua but it really did give it a vintage feel. The truck pin cushion was adorable and lucky you, getting that great pillow! Thanks for sharing this fun time!
