Gifts from HMQG

How was your weekend? Some of my favorite girls took me out for sushi and karaoke. We belted out some eighties tunes, and had a blast!

I wanted to share with you the surprise gifts I received at last week's guild meeting.

Surprise doesn't even begin to describe it! I've only been a member for a few months, and I was touched by the generosity and thought that these ladies put into gifts for our wedding.

You know I love to cook, right?
The girls made things that we can use in the kitchen!

From HMQG March 2012

Chi made me this reversible apron (also, my face is another confirmation of silliness).

Apron from Chi

Here's the other side. I can't pick a favorite!

Dishtowels and Napkins from Amy!

Amy made me these napkins and dishtowels, and also included some yellow bowls and mugs!

Table runner/trivet from Pam

Pam made me this table runner; she included Insul-Brite, so it's a functional trivet!

Potholders from Mona

Mona made me these adorable potholders, one granny square and one argyle.

Seriously adorable

I love the back of this one; she thought my wedding colors sounded like a weather forecast. It's so fun!

And finally, Robin drew my scraps in our guild swap.
In January, members brought in a bag of scraps to swap with another member (blindly). We then had two months to sew up the scraps into an item for that member.

Received: HMQG Scrap Swap

Robin made me this dishtowel and potholder. I love them!

I drew Beth's scraps, and I made her this tote bag.

FO: Beth's Scrappy Tote

I must admit, Beth's scraps didn't really grab me, but I added the scribble print and the blue solid. I really like this bag now!

I've got some bee blocks and improv to share soon!
