Christmas School at the Cherry Pit - Sleigh Bells just keep a-ringin'!

Two days of Christmas School and we are so excited we can hear Santa's sleigh bells ringing! So far 24 excited quilters have worked from 9 to 5 to ready seven beautiful projects designed just for Christmas giving. Wish each and everyone of you could be here for the excitement!!

Happy Quilting -

Christmas School 2010 - Let the Sleigh Bells Ring - Day One!!

We begin as the first 12 quilters walk through the door, Christmas School, 2010. The projects are hung on the board in clear view. Enthusiastic quilters set up machines, grab a coffee and muffin and set to work. There are giggles and laughs, as the fun of the day gets into full swing. Noon brings a big lunch with homemade ice cream made by Linda. (It is so good!) 5:00 o'clock arrives and a tired but happy group is leaving, projects in hand, and a smile on their face. And we hear as they travel our of our site, what a fun day together and now a good night.

Happy Quilting
