Bee Merry

The Bee gathered on Monday night right here at Chez Goodneedle for some Christmas cheer, gift exchange, and a movie! Pictured here are friends, fellow quilters and some bloggers (and would-be bloggers); to name a few: Salem Stitcher, Designer Stitches, Nane, Quiltkeemosabe, and Quiltteacher. If you look closely you will see one of the group wearing her Snuggie "Plush-wrap". I think she thought I'd object after a recent post, however I called her bluff... I'm totally OK with wearing them inside the house, anyone's house! We had a great evening, it wasn't until we sat down and began talking (never a problem) that I realized how long it's been since I've spent time with this group. With the new babies, the injuries in the family that required attention, visitors and various and assorted commitments my life has been crazy-busy all fall! I broke out the special stash of wine I had collected and reserved for my quilting friends, brewed some Christmas coffee and we ate, laughed and opened/traded/stole gifts while thoroughly enjoying each others company. We especially missed those two members who were unable to attend. I can't wait to gather together again; until then, may your gatherings Bee merry and your stitches be even and often!

Life is Good!

Thank you for hosting us again! It was too much fun. I told David he is now our official movie picker to which he rolled his eyes and sighed. (I think he's already thinking about next year though!)

Merry Christmas, my dear friend!
