15 ladies attended today. I pulled out the quilt we are making for Daryl and stitched in the ditch plus sewed on the binding. We're getting closer! Jo-Ann brought her little featherweight and thought she would work on a paper piecing project she started some time ago. She ran into problems so ended up sitting and chatting with everyone. Winnie is working on a wedding quilt for her granddaughter's wedding in June! She hopes to finish it by Christmas. Marie began appliquing a block for a quilt for her granddaughter also supposed to be finished soon. Those ladies will be working their poor fingers to the bone to finish these quilts on time. Hattie was knitting a pretty sweater in browns and white. Ethel had started another cross-stitch piece. Pat OR is making a Goodnight Moon quilt for a friend of her granddaughter who is expecting. It will be really cute quilt. Fran is working hard on placemats for the Delmar Q.U.I.L.T. group. They have a contest and she wants to win for making the most placemats. Good luck to her! Marguerite pulled out our raffle quilt. We're down to the border now but we are hand quilting it so it will still take a lot of time to finish. We had some good laughs today. Winnie regaled us with stories of her husband Bill streaking at a Kiwanis meeting (did I hear this wrong?). Then Marie had us rolling on the floor talking about being a newlywed working in a hospital as a nurse and having her first assignment be to bathe some men. One 75 year old man insisted on the full treatment and Marie complied, blushing all the way! We really have a funny group here! Cathy C. came by at the end to show us a sweatshirt jacket she had made and won 2nd prize for in a juried show in Florida. It was beautiful and fit so nicely. I might have her come and give us a lesson.
