20 ladies attended today. We had a lot of show and tell. Our new knitter, Deb, had made a cute little doll's sweater; Connie brought in pieces of a fishing quilt to get some opinions on how to jazz it up; Tina brought in a wedding quilt she made a long time ago for her son; Marguerite brought in her finished star quilt which she offered to finish for someone at her former church then donate it to the church. Well now she's finished it and likes it much better than she thought she would. She wishes she hadn't been so quick to offer it as a donation. But she did so off it will go. Marie brought in a shirret rug she was working on. She informed me that her middle initial is R and she often feels that it should stand for Rugs. That seems fitting to me since she makes every kind of rug there is! Elaine, our biology professor knitting friend joined us--it's her spring break. Pat was tying a bunch of baby quilts she had put together. Betsy brought in a really cute purse she had made. She's gotten to be an expert purse-maker. She also brought in our finished future raffle quilt top freshly ironed but unfortunately I didn't have a piece of batting big enough for it. And our old friends Alberta and sister Nancy, and Ingrid joined us again. We haven't seen them for awhile so it was nice to have them back. Next week I will be in Texas with my mother and sisters so you all will have to continue on without me. See you in 2 weeks!
