Some great winnings!

Last night I went to my quilt guild meeting. It was rainy and miserable but I went anyway.  I didn't think we would have a very good turnout but alot of people came despite the weather...We didn't really have a program last night. We were working on making stilettos for the TAQG (Texas Association of Quilt Guilds) Rally Day.  So, we all laughed and glued was actually pretty fun.   At this meeting, we were asked to bring 5 fat quarters to exchange.  We were to put them  in a container of some kind and we would have a game to exchange them.  Forty people participated in the exchange and it was so much fun.  There were all kinds of containers, baskets, glass jars,glass bowls, boxes, candle stick holders, you name it. The fat quarters had to be visible so people could see what they were getting.   I put my fat quarters in a glass mason jar and did some stitching on aida cloth to decorate the jar. I did not take pictures. I should have but didn't have my camera with me.  The game we played was take away.  When your name was called you could steal from anyone what they had or pick from the table.  An object was considered frozen after being stolen twice.  It was so much fun. I walked away with what I wanted...I was so lucky last night. I should have bought a lottery ticket!  I picked the cutest one....It was a box decorated to look like a bed and a Barbie doll and Ken doll were in bed together. Here's a pic of it.  Isn't this cute??? I'm not going to take it apart. I like the fabrics and will only take it apart if I just have to use them... I loved this. I thought it was too funny!

I also won some door prizes too.  Like I said, I was very lucky last night.  I won a Jelly Roll and a tool to put on your ruler. Duh, I can't think of the name of the tool right now but it's a pretty cool tool. 

Anyway, last night was fun and productive too.  Tonight, I'm actually going to get to sew. It is still raining here and I hope it doesn't take me forever to get home. I want to spend as much time in front of my sewing machine as I can.  Til next time, happy sewing!

What lovely fabric, and that bed is a great way to display it. The person who thought of that is a genius!

How fun! Congrats on all your winnings.

What a fun time and such great prizes! I certainly understand your wanting to get home to start sewing. I've been retired for 18 years but I vividly remember those long commutes made even worse by the rain, taking time away from things I wanted to do at home.

Maybe so many people came BECAUSE the weather was rotten. =) It was a really good night for you, and that had to be a great pick-me-up.
