Christmas Luncheon

The Kennel Girls held their Christmas luncheon the first Tues. in December.

Lynda always graciously sets it up with the Alpine Country Club.

Every year when we arrive they welcome us with a sign outside the entrance.


Fifteen members attended.  I think that is the most we have had in a long time.

For the past few years the inside d├ęcor has been in an unusual, yet beautiful orange and purple.


Look at Sylvia, I think she dressed for the occasion.  Coincidence or planned, what do you think?


Susann, Rae Ann, and our President; Diana.


Some member came bearing gifts.

Jill’s hubby makes the most delicious shortbread cookies.   She also gave some fun sewing notions.


Diana gave the darling scissor holder with scissors, Joylyn made the cute tomato pin cushion,  Laurie made the fun snap bag filled with a thimble and a doggie ornament, and Lynda gave us some of her delicious homemade fudge.


There were a variety of doggie ornaments.  I got this cute Dalmatian.


Members were contemplating what to order.

Amanda and Jill


Sue and Susann. 


When guess who snuck in?  That would be  the ‘Queen”, Laurie.  Where is her crown?

(Diana, Judy, Pam, and Lynda)


Look at her hair, that is natural.  If mine would go that color on it’s own I could kiss ‘L'Oreal ‘  good-bye!

Did I mention that she will be our President next year?



Pam and Lynda placing their order.  From the looks of it their mouths were watering just thinking about it.


Kathy and Joylyn happy with their menu choice.


Show and tell was inspiring.  I think that Jill got the over achiever award for this month.

Look at this cute table topper.  The trees and pinwheels are dimensional.


She also made this quilt pattern called dominos.  Love the pop of turquoise with the Fall tone colors.  She used extra fat quarters for her back.


What a fun quilt for her grandson, Easton.  Notice the E in the right hand corner?


Fun pirate skellies, right Matey?


Susann made this monkey themed quilt for a donation.  She’s monkeying around and hiding behind the quilt.


Oh, there she is.


Looks like these monkeys are up to a little monkey business of their own,


Rae Ann showed us her apron made from an old shirt.  I guess it’s all the latest rage.  Who’d a thunk?  Sure is cute.  I love the scallops!



Diana ended our show and tell with table quilts that she had made for her daughters for Christmas.  Such a fun fabric line.  She used her leftover scraps to make our darling scissor holders.



All of us had such a fun afternoon.  We hung around for quite some time and enjoyed visiting with each other.

It’s hard to believe that soon another year will be ending.

The ‘Kennel Girls’ have lots of projects to keep us busy.  Before we know it we’ll be planning our quilt show.

My how time flies when you’re having fun.

Have a dog-gone good day!
