Last Tuesday was our annual Christmas luncheon for Quilt Guild. The theme this year was "BEE-lieve". Our challenge was to make a small quilt, less than 100 inches in circumference, that either had a bee on it or showed something that we personally believe in. The lunch was great and we had one of our members, Sam, do a trunk show for us that was outstanding.
This past year I made a new friend, Mary Louise, and she shared with me some chocolate muffins. I just have to say they are delicious. So delicious there are no words to describe how delicious. And she was so nice to share the recipe with me.
