More Christmas Trees

 
Most people wouldn't choose a dreary, pouring rain day to go find a Christmas tree.
 
 
Neither rain nor sleet nor– whatever all the rest of that stuff is– can deter the Sometimes We Do Quilt Bee from driving down to Don's Tree Farm to kick off the Christmas season. Well, a few of us were unfortunately deterred and we missed you.
 
 
And you missed a great, festive lunch prepared by Peggy. The perfect beef vegetable soup, salad with fantastic dressing (ahem…waitin' on the recipe…) and Apple Pie for desert. Let me repeat, Apple Pie!
 
 
Peggy's house is always decorated so creatively. I forgot to count how many trees she has, in just the house!
 
 
She even decorates the dog.
 
 
This is the 'entry tree' with a little quilt I made and Peggy received in our annual gift exchange. It's nice to remember past projects.
 
 
After lunch we got a tour of the Christmas Shop.
 
 
The front of the shop is filled with all kinds of wonderful fresh arrangements, gifts of all kinds and trains circling a track near the ceiling. I hear that Santa pays a visit, too.

What a great way to spend a rainy day. Thanks, Peggy! I left feeling pretty festive and ready to get back to work, sewing on this year's gift for the party coming up too soon.
