Yesterday we had 16 ladies attend--2 new ladies who had attended our Open House and decided to come try us out. WelcomeDebbie and Connie! They are both knitters so we had a nice little group at the end of the table with their needles flying! Agnes had brought in some fabric some time ago and Catherine D. had given us more patterns, magazines, etc., which I got out to see if people would take. I did get rid of some (of course, I took a bunch). Yesterday was also a big show-and-tell day. Agnes, Cathy M., Winnie and Kathy O. had all made the 6 hour quilt that Kathy O. demonstrated last week. It's always fun to see different variations of the same quilt. Agnes also brought in a small quilt she had made from one of her husbands old shirts--it had antique cars on it. Quilters are good recyclers. And Fran had put together a large yellow brick road quilt for which her daughter had made the squares. Remember that next week we will be going to lunch at the Home Front at 12:00! I'll call ahead so they expect us.
