Thimbleweeds Tea Party

The Tea Party was a success from members attending the Party. The decorations looked so pretty with pink table cloths and tissue paper flowers as the center pieces. We had some great food and delicious tea. Hand made tea bag carriers were given out to each member and guest that attended. Door prizes were given to the member sitting in the specially marked chair. Or if there happened to be no winner they drew from the names from that table. (Rock,paper,scissors anyone?)

There was a beautiful fashion show of lovely vests and a rowdy bidding for the vests ensued. Wonderful entertainment and the money raised will go to a special project.

We also had a raffle for two items that will help fund the “next” tea party. We had a hand made soft sculpture doll donated by Joyce H. and a paper pieced tea cup wall hanging donated by Faye H.

Thank you to all who attended, brought food and shared some lovely tea pots and place settings.

Quilt Show Quilt Raffle Winner

And the winner is.......... Laura. She works a at local credit union.

When I called her up that day of the drawing she was busy but she called back. I was on my way to Cortez and the phone signal was terrible. I called her back once we got back to Rio Rancho and she was delighted. I was on my way out anyway so we arranged to meet at her work. Laura was so excited and said she had never won anything in her life and was so pleased to be the winner. I invited her to come to our next meeting and she said she would try.

I want to also take a minute to thank all the ladies that brought quilts to show off, sell and help with the quilt show on the 28th of April.

A special Thank you to Hazel for all your hard work.

Faye H.
