Tea Party

 About the only thing I did yesterday was make cookies. These weren't just everyday cookies, these were the perfect cookies for a bunch of quilters. They may be only ones to truly enjoy them.
 After 6 dozen, I got quite good at the details. If you are interested, here's the link to Bakerella where I got the idea. Except that I made a batch of peanut butter cookies. Apparently there are cookie mixes. Did you know that? I didn't. But really, how hard is it to make peanut butter cookies?
Anyway she gave me the idea and I thought they would be perfect for our tea party.
 Every year our guild celebrates with a cookie party and this year was no exception. No speaker, just cookies. It was a good time to catch up with friends and get a sugar high.
Last night I was not up to speed. I came home and instantly went to bed. I was running at half speed. I'm still tired, I'm hoping I'm not coming down down with something. But I do think my body is trying to tell me to take it easy, so I will.
At our December meeting, we display our community service quilts for the year. This year we had 205. These will go to different organizations near by.
 We had almost two walls covered with quilts, it's quite a sight!
Of course we have kid quilts, lots of kid quilts. It's a wonderful feeling to see this display and know that I had a tiny part in it. No matter where I am financially, I can always make quilts.
It was also a great place to pick up a pattern or two. Or a color way. A mini quilt show. It was a wonderful party, even if I did almost go into a sugar coma!

Oh and the best news. I won a box of chocolates for having the most UFO points that night! But isn't that terrible? Chocolate, from See's. It's a double edged gift. I love chocolate, but I also love seeing the scale going down. I just may have to re-gift them. that's what I'm thinking.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Take care, Brandie
