A Season of Giving

Last night was the December meeting of the London Friendship Quilters' Guild. At a previous meeting, we were all asked to make two placemats for the Meals on Wheels program in London. Meals on Wheels delivers meals to shut-ins. On Christmas Day, they deliver Christmas dinner as well as gift bags to each of their clients. For the last couple of years, the members of the guild have made placemats for the gift bags. A representative from Meals on Wheels was at our meeting last night to receive the placemats. She told us how appreciative the clients are to receive the gift bags with our placemats and other goodies in them. Here are the two placemats that I made:
I also did the binding on these candle mats and delivered them yesterday to their recipients. 

I worked on another gift yet but can't show you a picture yet...

Today, I am wrapping gifts and cleaning up the house. We are having special guests this weekend! My twin nieces are coming for a bit of aunt and uncle time. We have lots of fun activities planned. It should be a very busy weekend!


  1. What a lovely idea to brighten the day for your Meals on Wheels recipients!!! Very cheery!!!

  2. Great idea! I might have to copy it as we are supposed to bring finished placemats to our next guild meeting too!
