What I've been working on...

Christmas presents and blankets for two charities....

My offering for a Secret Santa gift at the Ladies church Christmas party...our theme was snowmen.

I based the table square I made off this line drawing I found on Pinterest.

This is an embroidered tea towel with crochet trim that I made for our daughter for Christmas.  Her kitchen is turquoise and red.

Fleece and flannel baby blankets for the Tohono O'Odham Children's Home.

One of the fleece  blankets (lined with the plaid shirt flannel on the back) made for the Homeless Veterans. My church donated tons of clothes, shoes, jackets, etc and also other blankets, some made and some bought.
The baby blanket I crocheted for the Children's Home (my church also donated clothing, diapers, etc)

The quilt square for the Christmas party at the Tucson Quilter's Guild last isn't lying flat, sorry...we did a secret exchange, and I came home with a cute one with an owl on it!  The squares were also voted on, but mine didn't come in in the top four, unfortunately.
Here are a couple of photos from last night's party too...we had AMAZING food!  It was a potluck and I ate till I was miserable!!!!

These are all the exchange squares, up on the wall so we could vote on them.  Number 18 came in with first place. Number 1 came in second place, and I can't remember 3rd & 4th places.  Number 15 is the one I came home with.
While I'm at it, here are a couple of pictures from our church Ladies Christmas party:

You can see our snowman theme...the table square I made that is in the first photo of this series was for our secret gift exchange.

These wonderful crocheted snowmen were on each table, and happened to be the gift I won in the exchange!  Note the cute snowman toilet paper too...we all got one.
