Twelve Years of Christmas Friendship

1999, Year One
jill here...One of the best gifts I ever gave myself was starting a holiday tradition.  Twelve years ago I invited 7 friends (some sewers, some not) to a project party.

I warmed up the cider as they arrived early on a snowy December day.  We chatted for awhile and then we attacked what I considered an easy wall hanging.  "Merry and Bright" (a free pattern available to quilt retailers) was our first endeavor.  We took a welcome break for a soup lunch and then attempted to complete the hanging or pillow in the afternoon.

The project took longer than that day to complete. What a surprise! The sense of accomplishment  was worth the challenge.

The tradition of getting together has been repeated for another eleven years.  Join us daily in our celebration of "Twelve Years" of Christmas Friendship.

See you tomorrow.
