Since 2015 our members have enjoyed our Annual Christmas Luncheon at Kelsey’s Restaurant. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we didn’t meet for Christmas 2020 and this was not possible again this year. Zoom has become a very popular way for various groups to meet and we have been holding our General Meetings in this way. So, instead of foregoing our annual Christmas event, we met via Zoom. Definitely not the same as meeting in person, but fingers crossed we can meet in person for Christmas 2022.
Well it looks like that member who has given each member a Christmas Card with a little chocolate treat for the past years, isn’t able to do this again this year. Maybe next year, the members will get three treats?
The Non-Exchange Christmas Ornament Exchange
Norah – These are a few of the ornaments I have made for friends and myself this year (see below).
Suz – I’ve been working on my Christmas Stars for my grandchildren as I have to mail them a month early so hopefully they’ll arrive before Christmas. I’ve included two photos of them (below). They’re made with four layers of cheesecloth and inclusions like foil bits and wee pieces of thread, then free motioned machined to create a lacy effect. I added some metallic thread around the inside of the star, tipped each arm with an AB bicone Swarovski crystal and added a dangle with more crystals, silvery seed beads and a larger element. Three rows of buttonhole lace edge the star and I tatted a hanger. I hope to make one for my own tree, too.
