Welcome to Dinner

Oh wait! I think I hear the Doorbell. . .

**Runs for door with excitement to see if guests are arriving**

(Yes. . . that's my Christmas tree you see. lol.)

Please. . . Come on in, it's terribly cold outside. . .


Look at all the SNOW we got a few weeks ago!!!
I'm just happy that you made it here safely!


Here, let me take your coat and I'll put it in my husband's office. Just a sec. Okay, I'm back.

I understand you had dinner at John and Monica's house last night. How are they doing? Well, I hope! Let's go in the family room now so, you can sit by the fire and get warm while we wait for more guests to arrive. . .


Would you like something to eat?
Yes? Oh, good. . .
I've baked up a yummy dessert for you.

You don't mind having dessert first, do you?


Excuse me, but. . . did you have a question? Oh yes, it's called Strawberry Trifle and it's one of my family's favorite desserts. I made several copies and left them HERE on the kitchen counter if you'd like one. Just remember to pick it up before you leave. Would you also like a glass of punch? Yes?

It's my favorite PARTY PUNCH and the recipe's so simple. . .

Just Mix: One 2-liter bottle of Cherry 7-Up and 1 Can of Pineapple Juice. Yep, that's it!

You can easily double, triple, or quadruple the recipe depending on the size of your gathering. Just pour what you need into a punch bowl and add ice. It goes really fast so you needn't worry about the ice melting and diluting the punch. You could even freeze another can of pineapple juice and toss in some cut up pineapple and fresh raspberries. Just put it in a bundt pan to make a "Frozen Raspberry Pineapple Ring" that you can toss in the punch bowl just as you're ready to serve it. I think I need another cup of punch. How about you?

How are you doing? Good. I'm happy to hear that. It sure has been nice getting to know you a little better. I know you like to sew and I was just wondering. . . Have you had a chance, yet, to make any of my projects from Moda's Bake Shop? Oh, that's great! Which one is your favorite?

If you haven't seen my Moda Bake Shop Recipes you can link to them HERE.


Hey, look who's just arrived, it's one of our Special Guests. . .

**Stands up to Greet and Hug**


Let me introduce you to Melissa Mortenson from Polka Dot Chair. She's such a great person. You'll be friends in no time at all.

Did you know that she's one of the many wonderful Moda Bake Shop Chefs?

It just so happens that Melissa has designed several of my favorite projects. So when you have a minute make sure to check them out at the BAKE SHOP.

I sure hope you saved some room for more FOOD because we're headed on over to Melissa's Dinner Party at Polka Dot Chair. If any of you want to carpool I have enough seat belts for 7 people. Can any of you fit a few in your car?

Oh! I almost forgot! Before we leave. . . I want to THANK ALL OF YOU for coming to my home for dinner tonight. Hey, dessert is dinner. hehehe! lol. It's been so much FUN having you visit and share in the big CELEBRATION!!!

And one more thing. . . It's the GIVEAWAY!

Each Moda Bake Shop Chef is giving away ONE BOOK of "Fresh Fabric Treats" and ONE Moda Pre-Cut. Each Chef will choose the pre-cut they'll be giving away at their dinner party. I've chosen Fat Quarter Bundles. FQ Bundles are the best! I really love having extra fabric after making a project just so I can use the scraps in other quilts or craft projects.


Please Join me in THANK-ING Moda Bake Shop and Stash Books for generously providing the prizes for the Progressive Dinner Party. The Prize will be mailed once the books are available for shipping.

Now HERE are the RULES & DETAILS of the Progressive Dinner Giveaway!
  • Please leave ONE comment on THIS POST to be entered into the Giveaway.
  • The Giveaway will END on January 27th and my winner will be chosen sometime that day by a Random Integer Generator.
  • Please make sure I can CONTACT you. . . especially if you happen to win.
  • Moda's Progressive Dinner Grand Prize Drawing: Make sure to visit ALL of the CHEFS on the progressive dinner tour and leave a comment on their dinner post, you’ll then be entered in the drawing to win $200’s worth of Moda pre-cut fabrics along with a copy of the book "Fresh Fabric Treats"
