Today 21 ladies attended. Tomorrow is Marie's 89th birthday so Rosmary brought a cake and we all sang to her. She successfully blew out the Faith, Hope and Charity candles (Rosemary's dad didn't like to waste candles so they always had just the 3) and we all had cake. Pat, who was new last week, brought in the bag pattern that many of us admired. I made copies for those who wanted them. Ethel brought in a finished cross-stitch made for her new grandson. It was absolutely beautiful. Marie brought in some applique blocks she made a long time ago. She needs to make a few more blocks to finish a top so she was working on that. Kathy O. and Sandy are knitting socks. Jo-Anne brought in her little machine to make cards with a pattern pressed onto them. She sends St. Patrick's Day cards to all of her Irish friends. We had a surprise visit from Ingrid who used to come regularly. She has had a lot of health issues lately but is getting back on her feet now. It was nice to see her again. And we had a visit from my old friend Pam who is disappointed in her Civil War table runner. The pattern didn't work out to allow for the quarter inch seam so her points don't show. We told her not to worry about it. The colors are so beautiful that no one but her will notice the problem. Cathy M. brought in a little needlepoint picture that belonged to her godmother. Cathy liked it so much when she was young that the lady gave it to her. She brought it in to show us and to see what kind of stitch it was (apparently it's just an embroidery stitch). It was very pretty. Elaine came in a little late but brought in some of her roving which she is going to use to make a braided rug. It's an interesting project so we all want to see it progress. Lots of talk and laughter today. A good day for all.
