And a very jolly time was had by all! The quilters outdid themselves with yummy food - trifle, ginger slice, cookies, chocolate-dipped shortbread, cheese & fruit, fruitcake.... and a festive table cloth, flickering candles, a dancing Christmas frog (okay... - but he was cute!), and even a Santa Claus ensured the Christmas spirit was high! Beautiful carols playing in the background - one could almost think Christmas was upon us - and not just 5 months away.... The weather certainly is winter-dreary, and spending an evening with a fun group of friends a good way to chase away the winter blues.
