Last night was the small guild Christmas Party. We had fun, food, and a sewing machine cover exchange. We've had ornament exchanges in the past, but, Marilyn suggested we make sewing machine covers this year. EVERYONE participated! There were 10 of us at the meeting (yes, a few couldn't make it, as usual). I took pictures of everyone with the sewing machine cover that they went home with.

|Eileen picked her cover, since she hadn't had time to finish the binding. Eileen loves batiks.|
|Marilyn's cover had a sewing machine on it, and sewing themed fabric on the inside|
|Thelma got the cover that I made|
|Kay's cover was in Mary Engelbreig fabric|
|Emily's cover had stitchery patterns on it|
|Ginny's cover was in lovely shades of blues|
|Viki's cover was in sewing themed fabric with thread spools on it|
|Janette's cover also had pockets sewn on both sides. What a great idea!|
|this is the cover I got. It has bees on it, even in the fabric. Sew cute!|

Ginny made stiletto's for everyone. She makes these from turkey hooks. She also included cute cards with everyone's stiletto.

I finished my sewing machine cover on Sunday.

This was a quick, fun project. Other than the applique, which I fused and cut out a few weeks ago, I didn't start on this until Thursday, after I purchased the background fabric. Khristina and I found the binding fabric while shopping on Saturday.
I have 2 more of the sewing machines cut out. I'm thinking that I need a small wall hanging, just for me. Maybe after I finish hand quilting the Christmas presents, I'll get time to make me something.
Now to go get ready for Quilts of Valor sew-in today!
