18 ladies attended today. Jean K. began teaching us to make the flower petal pincushion. Several of us were giving it a try. I finished the first of 3 layers of petals so now I need to cut out more fabric for the rest of the project. When we've finished this project I plan to have Marguerite teach us to make the tape measure bag. Small projects are fun mostly because you can actually finish them! Hattie and Cathy Y. were again our knitters. Deb was even giving knitting a try today but she didn't have enough yarn to make the scarf she wanted to make. Betsy and Daryl were both quilting cheater cloth quilts. Fran brought in some of her place mats. She want to make 100 of them for one of her quilt group projects. She also sewed the binding on a cute baby quilt with appliqued ducks. It's too bad she doesn't have any babies in her family because she has sure made some beautiful baby quilts! We were all very busy today so I didn't manage to get in on any conversations and I assume that next week we will still be busy finishing our pincushions.
