The counter tops were installed Friday. I had no idea there were so many choices for faucets until I had to choose one. (The first one I sort of liked was $1400. The second one I sort of liked was for a bar sink. I finally found one that I can live with and that fit the budget.) My next decision is knobs and pulls. (The place with the faucets had a big selection. I asked the price of one. $13.00. Each. Our new cabinets require 52 in all. I will shop further.)
The first week of each month is meeting-filled and this week that meant holiday gatherings. Monday: P.E.O. with a potluck and the annual Christmas sock exchange. We also collected socks and underwear for a local agency.
The Zion Woman's Club holiday party was at noon on Tuesday. We had a white elephant swap. (I gave a half dozen linen dishtowels from my stash. I got a small autumn dried flower arrangement.)
The Northern Lake County Quilters Guild party was a catered dinner on Wednesday The guild has several holiday traditions -- a fat quarter bundle exchange (sets of four packaged however you'd like), an ornament exchange (handmade or not), and a white elephant swap. (I gave more dishtowels and I got....hmmm, I can't recall!)

Stevens and I joined fellow Rotarians for dinner on Friday evening prior to the Carthage College Christmas Festival . The fellowship was great. The music was magnificent!
AAUW's holiday luncheon was Saturday. The silent auction benefits our STEM scholarship. This is when we draw the winner of the holiday quilt that I contribute. The raffle raised $430 for AAUW Funds. Janet S. is the delighted winner of Stars of the Season.
The Lake County Symphony Orchestra concert was Saturday evening. The program had a variety of serious and popular works.

I had a little time to sew during all of this holiday whirl.
Here is Frolic, part 2. I'm grateful that Bonnie made this clue an easy one.
Half of my OMG for December was to make four book blocks for a group quilt for the 2020 ALA auction. I could not stop at four, as you can see.
