A "Miss Bee Haven" Christmas

Huh? Christmas? This motley crew?

Yep...that's us...the ladies of Miss Bee Haven at the annual Christmas dinner of Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild. What a HOOT! Casting aside the traditional notions of sparkle and elegance, we decided to live up to our name. Donning our do-rags and "Born to Quilt" tattoos (temporary ones!) along with our "Got Fabric?" tshirts created by our fearless leader Leanne, we turned a few heads to be sure! The Bees of the guild were asked to decorate tables...our table was decorated in black fabric and chain link with metallic red spirals, complete with a motorcycle riding animated Santa that played "Get Your Motor Runnin..." (I had a good time playing with that...it was just too funny!) But it was not all just for fun...it is also part of our fundraiser for The Women's Fund of Winston-Salem. The tshirts are for sale! Santa also rode off to a good home in the guild's Toys for Tots drive.

Thanks to my son John for being our photographer and capturing the memory of this fun evening!

You all look like you're having way too much fun!! lol
I checked the website for the fundraiser but didn't see where I could order some of those shirts. My little quilt group would love them!!! Can you let me know how to get some?
