Welcome back to me! I spent last week in Texas visiting my mom and soaking up some warmth. Today 12 ladies attended. Marguerite informed me that Hattie has been sick so we tied up a prayer quilt which Kathy O. is taking home to finish. After this we pulled out the to-be-raffled quilt and started quilting. Fran suggested that we all make ourselves nametags because we're all having a hard time remembering each others names. Marguerite brought in her almost finished apple core quilt. She wanted some advice about her quilting pattern which we all gladly responded to. Marguerite does all hand piecing and hand quilting so her quilts are always amazing. She is a great quilter with small stitches that we all envy. Edith Goldstein was back and has started a new needlework piece. I asked her to bring in her finished heraldic piece which we all oohed and aahed over while she was working on it. The new piece is a kids design which will be a great gift for her grandson Adam. Joyce came in for a minute to tell us about the project we will be working on at the next (April) meeting of the Jr. Nimblefingers--a personal statement quilt. Several of us will need to bring in our machines for that meeting. Marie wore her beautiful yo-yo vest she had made from a sweatshirt. After making yo-yo's with the Jr.'s we are all becoming more aware of the fun that can be had from yo-yo's.
