20 ladies attended today. The big news is Kathy O is back! And this time she didn't bring back any new patterns to teach us. I knew that day would come sometime I just didn't know when. But she did bring in her finished yellow sweater in a stitch she was working on when she left last spring. She also brought in a serged quilt. I've never seen a quilt serged with the serged seams showing but this was one. It was very nice. Deb finished her tablerunner (the 3rd to do so) in spite of all the whining and complaining she did about how hard it was. I still haven't started mine. I brought in a load of Linda O'Connor's items--mostly patterns. She had so much stuff and I really don't want to throw it away so naturally I'm taking what's left home with me. Marie brought in a partially finished rug she's been working on plus some of her rug-hooking books. Linda B., a new member, is interested in taking up rug-hooking so joined the group just to talk to Marie. Ethel was working on a beautiful bargello ornament and Sandie was making a hardanger piece. Lots of knitting going on around the table and I added just a couple of stitches to my needlework.
