I'D RATHER BE - Sitting
down to my Janome and sewing.
No surprises here.
- One of my favorite restaurants.
FAVE PART OF THE DAY - My first cup of coffee with the Press.
OF A KIND - Out to dinner before guild with a couple of girl
friends.The local sports bar had a burger special this
past Thursday, $2.49 for a cheeseburger and $1.99 for a regular burger. And they were delicious!
MY LEFT - Just where Trudy wants to be whenever she can.
I belong to three guilds:Orange Grove Quilters Guild, in Garden Grove, California, Quilters by
the Sea, in Long Beach, California, and Flying Needles Quilt Guild in Niceville,
Florida.This week I was able to attend
both the one in Garden Grove and Long Beach.
Annie Smith was the guest lecturer at Orange Grove Quilters
Guild.You can find out more about this
dynamic quilter and her wonderful use of color here.
Anelie Belden was Quilters by the Sea guest lecturer.You may know her from her wonderful book Thoroughly
Modern Dresden.Visit her website here
if you want to learn more about her wonderful approach to quilting.
I love the quilting community and all it provides, including
knowledge, activities, and most important wonderful friends who get you! If you haven't joined your local guild, look into it. You may find it a very gratifying experience.
I have been working on things I cannot show you for so long: gifts for people who may see the postings
here.So, while it seems that I am unproductive,
I do keep plugging along.
I can now show you the healing-heart quilt for a gal in my
on-line friendship group, C-R-A-F-T.She
received it yesterday. Members sent me a 9.5" heart of their choice and I put it together and quilted it. I hope she likes it.
Now I am neatening my quilt room so I can tackle more projects
that have deadlines.Enjoy your weekend
