    My guild is having a christmas meeting and for something fun they want some of us to dress up like a block... I'm having a hard time thinking of something to dress up like. Monkey wrench is already taken... So I'm hoping that you guys have some ideas! Please help me out!

    I am thinking a dresden plate. Seeing a skirt with a scalloped edge for each gore in a different fabric.

    hole in the barn door--wear a big black circle to look like a hole. Or, make a square out of fabric that looks like wood, and cut a hole in it.

    I could go as Contrary Wife just by being myself! If you want quick and easy, wear a bow-tie.

    A Christmas tree with lights (if you don't mind making holes in your fabric). PM me if interested in the idea.

    What about "Churn Dash"? Would depend on whether you had access to a used churn or churn parts.......

    Knock down a couple of drinks and go as the Drunkard's Path. The lampshade hat might be a nice touch. Just make sure to have a designated driver.

    I agree with MadQuilter anyone can pretend to be drunk. I do when I am not well at night.( I don't drink ANY alcohol or tea either) Best of all what ever you choose please please let us see what you look like. We all can do with a laugh(with you not at you)

    Perfect and no stress! A glass in each hand and a path (or ribbon) basted on. See if they can guess the block!!
