What a fun Christmas potluck!

We started with a potluck dinner which had lots of yummy foods - no shortage of amazing dishes and desserts.


Then we had our mug rug exchange.  This involved many "involuntarily" relinquishing their mug/rug.  When it ended we got a picture of all the wonderful mug rugs, with mugs to match in a lot of cases.
Show and shares rounded out our meeting, demonstrating that our members have been busy.

Christmas pot luck, Wednesday, Dec.6 at 6:00pm (note early start)

The Christmas pot-luck will be our last meeting of the year.  Where has the time gone?

Our meeting is next week: Wednesday, December 6th. and it will be a Christmas potluck starting at 6:00pm.  Bring a dish to share and there is a microwave and stove available to keep things hot. Tea and coffee will be supplied.

If you have not renewed your membership you will need to do it at this meeting as we have to renew our membership with the mother ship and we want to ensure that everyone has access to the wonderful things available to members on the MQG website.  Please see Dona-Mae to renew your membership.

Bring your mug rug and mug for the exchange. It will be fun to see what people have chosen to create and pair with a mug.  Everyone that is participating will receive a mug and rug in return.

If you want to take part in the "paint chip" challenge, Dona-Mae will have paint chips available at the meeting.  This challenge will be due at our January meeting (Jan. 3).

So - be sure to bring:
-your entry for the mug rug exchange
-a dish to share
-your own plate/eating utensils/cup
-your show and share
See you on Wednesday for social time, fun, food and laughs.
