We had a great time socializing with all our new and existing members and spouses. I love the fact that these husbands are really interested in the group and learning about the other artists. We have expanded recently and some of our newer members travel some distance to be a part of Textures. It is an honor to have them.
Linda and Rick did a fabulous job of hosting this year. Mountains of food were present and I do believe there was a different dessert for everyone there! Linda went a bit overboard but all the food tasted great and the variety was endless. I loved the lemon bars and the stuffed grape leaves that Laura brought were great, and I don't usually like grape leaves.
Phyllis was the winner of the ugly sweater contest and I think the giant bows that she pinned on the sleeves put her over the top. Luke had the runner up favorite for ugly and it truly was. Laura did a great job of ugly and if there was a couples competition they would have won, hands down.
Did any of you have an ugly sweater competition? What great ideas did you see to incorporate into next years sweater?
