This year is speeding by. Thankfully Spring is right around the corner. Next quilt club was to be the 26th of March, but that is Easter weekend, so we are delaying it for a week and will be meeting on April 2nd instead. That month sound so nice to me!
We worked on a make and take today-a really cute star ornament. I didn't bring mine home and forgot to take a picture, so if anyone wants to send me a picture-I will put it into the blog. Rhonda had us use strips of fabric folded like binding and then we were to do something like origami with them and if they turned out correctly-really cute stars! It was fun and funny at the same time. The person who designed these must have a really creative mind.
Here are Peggy's stars. She put magnets on the back. Very nice.
There were a lot of show and tells this month. Sue brought her Singer 201 sewing machine-again I forgot to take a picture. Fortunately I was able to find a picture of one on the internet. This one is a centennial-you can tell by the blue around the Singer badge. I am posting this for those of you who may become vintage sewing machine fanatics also. This is the Cadillac of the old Singers. I got to sew on her and she is nice! Thanks for bringing her Sue!
Patty has been making good use of her time. She brought some beautiful examples of her work. I think she said the Bear Paws was bought at one of the quilt shows. It turned out very nice. Rhonda's quilting is very pretty on this also.
Patty has also been busy making beach bags.
For food today, we had subs, pie, cake and snacks. We were also supposed to have butternut/black bean soup, but that ended up all over the back of my car.
Just an FYI about that-I hit a small bump o the road and didn't hear the little tinkle of the lid on the crockpot any more. When I had a chance to pull over to check on the soup, it was too late. I opened the hatch of my car, and soup dripped down into my hair. I was wearing quite a bit of it to quilt club. It was running down my rear bumper, all over the wells in the car, on my light carpet, just generally a mess. When I got home I finished cleaning the car. Next was to clean the crock pot. That ended up being thrown away. The little bump caused one of the legs to break off of the crock pot. My three legged crock pot only has two now. I would have never thought something like this could happen. Hopefully this lesson will be remembered next time I need to transport something like soup again.
