Today 19 ladies attended. The countdown is on for the Village Quilters quilt show (July 14 and 15) so several ladies are madly making fabric flowers. We will all be happy when we don't have to make flowers anymore. Pat L. brought in a stained glass window she made for her daughter (pictures to follow). It was totally amazing! Her granddaughter will be very happy--she wanted an owl window and this one has an owl in it. She said it only took about a month to make. That's quicker than most fabric/thread projects! Rosemary brought in a finished and framed cross-stitch she has been working on--a very nice angel surrounded by flowers. It's very pretty. Diane had made a basket of yo-yo flowers for her friend Jo-Ann's birthday. It was very cute. And finally, Fran was working on the sleeve for a new quilt she just picked up from the quilters last week. It was a poinsettia quilt. It's a very easy pattern and really works well with the large prints. We might be seeing more of that pattern--we all love a quick and easy pattern. Sandie was working on hardanger today and Marie brought in a small oriental rug she had made at some time. I'm sorry I've missed a couple of weeks of reporting on our doings. When I get busy at work my blog seems to fall by the wayside. I'll try not to let it happen too often though.
