December Meeting - Potluck Dinner

We celebrated the holidays with a Potluck Dinner.  Members brought in such a variety of food it was hard to know where to begin.  Two tables full of savory dishes to taste and whole separate table full of sweets to for dessert.  After tasting the dishes we asked each other for the recipes.  The highlight was our show and share table which filled quickly.

Bob surprised us all with all the progress he made on his Borders Project.  The technique is Hardanger on canvas.  It's an original design and the flower detail in the squares is just beautiful. 

Enjoy the show and share - here are some more stunning finishes.  The first picture is counted canvas technique, "Galaxy", in a primary color palette.  Old St. Nick is in cross stitch - it had been sitting in stash limbo - we're glad you decided to finish it, Sue - It's just beautiful.

Next are three Christmas painted canvases, beautifully interpreted by Cathy.  The pears have kept her busy too - here's 7 and counting!

Rounding out the table of show and share are two pieces designed by Needle Delights, "Amazing Color" and "Color delights - Purple".  Each beautifully showcased.
