One of my favourite days of the month is the MLQ sewing day. Unfortunately I’ve had to miss a few days this past year as I work Thursday-Monday. But there was no way I was missing our 4th annual Christmas sewing day. Everyone is so merry and bright…just like in the song. Lot’s of visiting throughout the day, a Secret Santa gift exchange, Christmas music and delicious food kept everyone in great spirits. Those last minute gifts were being stitched and Joan and I even put aside our “not overly fondness” of cats to assist Denise with a mini project she was working on.
For lunch we had a delicious French Canadian tourtiere, salad rings with a chocolate Yulelog for dessert. After just leaving the table Barb arrived bringing a container of awesomely delicious chocolate cookies. How is one supposed to keep moving after eating like that?
It’s hard to believe that we’re finishing off our 4th year of Maple Leaf Quilters. Every sewing day and every retreat continue to bring that same kind of fun & friendship that we envisioned when we started out with “Maple Leaf Quilters, an Adventure in Quilting.” Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending any of the following sewing days booked at Chesapeake Landing in Ladner, BC: January 24, 2015 Februrary 28, 2015 March 28, 2015 April 25, 2015. Our retreat at Edenvale, Abbotsford, BC is booked for May 22, 23, 24 & 25, 2015.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Quilting…Valerie Raye and Joan
