14 ladies attended today including a couple of new people. I got out the sewing machines again and we continued making mile-a-minute blocks. We must have almost 20 blocks by now. Next week Diane from the Gloversville Sewing Center is coming and she will give us instruction on the sewing machines and the week after that the community room will be closed for the book sale and we will be going out to lunch. So we won't get back to our block making until Tuesday the 23rd. But we picked out some possible lattice fabric so we're ready to go. Cathy Maikoff did double duty helping with the blocks and helping the new folks with knitting. They had some beautiful yarn they were working with. And MaryAnn Morrison who came for the first time last week was here again. We succeeded in getting her totally addicted to mile-a-minute blocks. She thought it was better than Freecell and for all of us who have dealt with that addiction we know what she is talking about. Next week Marie Russell is also going to bring in her braided rugs to show us. She took some of the donated polyester fabric to use in her rugs and people were asking her to demonstrate braided rug making. For show and share I brought in the little needle felted bag I made last week. It was from a kit--I just wanted to try out needle felting. It was fun!
