New Friends Christmas Party this and that

It was our annual Christmas party with New Friends Quilt Circle on Tuesday and we had a fun time. I loved all the great pot luck dishes the ladies brought. Such good cooks and a great variety so that there was something for everyone. I made a dish Cheesy Chicken and even though I had never made it before, I was confident that it would be good since it had chicken, cream cheese, shredded cheese and broccoli. DS A said it smelled awful but I got the last laugh as it was delicious LOL
I made this quick purse/tote from a panel I bought at Joann's the other day. I made sure to use some fusible fleece to give it some body and added the silk flower from my scrapbook supplies. I put some MaryEllen's Best Press in lavender, a lavender candle, and a bar of handmade lavender soap. That was my gift for the exchange. My friend TR got it and she said she liked it a lot. Shew....you never know about those kinds of gifts.
I can't seem to find any Christmas gift bags so I took a plain white one and supplies from my scrapbook stash and jazzed it up. Nice thing is that it also works for the Fantabulous Cricut blog's challenge this week.
Supplies: plain gift bag, pp DCWV Christmas 09 stack, ribbon American Crafts and stash, tag cut with my Cricut using the From the Kitchen cart.
A group of friends displaying their challenge projects. Everyone had the same center panel and then created a baby quilt from it. Great job everyone! Since the center fabric was many years old it was a challenge to find fabric to "match".
More photos from our show and tell to come.
