It was a fantastic Christmas Craft Day at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past Friday.  I look forward to this day every year.  Above Diana and Rosa show us the little Sweet Pea Pods they made from left over fabric from our first project.
 Our first project was this Bendy Bag.  I got so involved in making the bag that I forgot to take pictures.
Above, Chris shows us these darling Candy coasters which were our next project.
Carol H. is so clever.  She made this one and jazzed it up with a fancy stitch on her machine.  I love it!
Marilyn shows us our next project.  She called it a bread basket but I can see so many uses for it.
Above is Rosa with her project finished.
The pattern for the Nesting Bread Baskets shows it in two different sizes.
Above Chris shows us our next project, Triangle Pocket Ornaments. You can see them in the last photo of my finished projects.  I'm filling them with goodies for my great grandchildren.
Somewhere along the way we stopped for lunch.  Everyone brought a dish to pass and Oh, My was it good.  During lunch Chris gave each of us this tree and some candy.  The tree is actually two fat quarters.  What a nice gift!  Thank you Chris.
 Back to work!  We made this adorable Snowman Mat or Wall Hanging. 
From the left over fabrics we made the above coaster!
Carol H. also made this darling little heart for her snowman, using the YoYo maker.
 Coleen (left) and Jan show us some of their projects they worked on that day.
 Barb shows us her Bread Basket.
 Sue (left) and Lynn were too busy sewing to hold up their finished projects.  But I think they were having a good time teasing me.  Those rascals wore each other's name tags making me think I'm losing my mind!
 Yvonne (left) and Rosa show us their Snowman mats.
Carol H. (left) and Phyllis show us some of their projects.

 And I have to show you my projects.  I finished all six projects the next day. 
And I still have fabric and projects to complete.  Chris sent us home with fabric for another Candy coaster, a Snowflake Coaster, and the YoYo heart.  Then I had fabric left from the Bread Basket.  Too pretty to toss.  And then there are the pieces left over from the Bendy Bag so I can make the Sweet Pea Pods.  Diana said she would help me with those. 

It was a wonderful day and a special Thanks to Chris, Diana, and Marilyn for making kits and spending the day helping us to make these wonderful projects.  I'm not showing my daughter the snowman this year.  We made a different one last year and she snapped it up right away and took it home with her.  LOL  You can read about last year's Craft Day here.
