Holiday Gifts by the Thursday Girls

In a rare occurrence, all eight of the Thursday Girls were together last night. It was great to see everyone. As expected in December, everyone was busy making gifts.

Nancy Q. showed us this pretty little quilt that she just finished.

The Girlfriends' Quilt

She is also making these cute snowman tote bags for her coworkers.
She is filling them with a coffee mug and a Dunkin' Donuts gift card.
Ginny was making pillow shams. She had already made a matching quilt, so these will be a follow-up gift.

Pillow shams in soft pastels.

Toni was busy crocheting. Guess she left her sewing machine at home.

Pat brought in her Low Volume Quilt to show us. It is made in various shades of grey. Unfortunately it doesn't photograph well, but it is truly lovely in person.

Not quite fifty shades of grey...

Pat's daughter Allison is getting married on New Year's Eve, so Pat was busy making faux fur wraps for the bridesmaids to wear over their dresses so they won't freeze (winter in New England, after all). After she finishes making the eight wraps, she has to make a dress for the Flower Girl. Note to Pat: I'm looking for some animal print fur so you can make me a wrap too!

Better keep sewing! Pat has to make seven more!
Karen and her husband are avid skiers. They are taking their four adult children and their significant others on a ski trip for a Christmas gift. Karen was busy making toiletry bags for her two daughters and for her sons' two girlfriends. She is going to fill them with shampoo, soap and lip gloss.

Karen is embellishing each bag with the recipient's name.
The bags are lined inside with vinyl and she finished her
inside seams with binding.
I was thrilled to put the very last stitches in Eleanor's Quilt.

Beth was working on a holiday lap quilt and Judi was making a snowflake table runner. Sorry, I didn't get a picture.

Hope your holiday gift making is going well!

Pugs and kisses,
