ROCKY MOUNTAIN CUT-UPS
The Rocky Mountain Cutups had their Holiday Party on December 8th. Fifteen members and friends gathered at Rosanne's home for lunch and cookies. We played games and ate cookies. Penny found the Christmas Pickle that was hidden in the tree. Nicki won the door prize of a cute cookie jar. Everyone brought a small cookie cutter gift for the gift exchange. We all had a good time.
Sixteen members and friends of the Rocky Mountain Cut-ups met at June's house on December 10 for Cookies and Cocktails. Of course everyone brought cookies to share. We also each brought a cookie cutter gift to exchange. We played a game of CCCC trivia with prizes. Hostess June provided wine and lemonade. Penny's cookies were wonderful little snow globes. It was a great evening with friends.
Plans are for a sleep-over on Friday night in LaVeta, CO where Lorella has a house. It will be the "Fall Festival" there so we should have lots of fun. The meeting will be on Saturday. Theme is "Can you spell COOKIE?" This will be a "special cutter" meeting with all the usual things: lots of cookies, scramble, show&tell, raffle, business meeting and program.
The Rocky Mountain cutups had their Spring meeting in Westminster, CO on April 2nd. Seventeen members gathered for a fun meeting with a pirate theme. Captain Penny and her crew had cute decorations and programs. Some of the members dressed the part! June even had a parrot! Our meeting started with the traditional social hour and scramble.
For the program, June and Mae Jane shared some of their cookie jars. June also had information that she got from Tupperware and everyone shared cutters from their collections. We were surprised when Cassandra showed examples of the many colors that some of the Tupperware came in. Lunch was a buffet with the centerpiece of a ham. The cookie table was loaded with lots of cookies. During show-n-tell we all had new finds to share. Cassandra won the door prize of a basket full of goodies. Mae Jane won the second door prize of a Keebler cookie jar. Arlene gave Penny a cute elephant cutter to thank her for continuing to be historian. The meeting cutter was a cute pirate made by our own RMCU tinsmith, Elenna Firme. The RMCU membership cutter was also given out. It is a quilt block, Delectable Mountains, made by Julie Dawson of Orchard Canyon. The raffle table was full of wonderful baskets and the meeting ended with the raffle. Everyone had a good time.
