Today was our Open House for our quilt show. We had at least 62 people attend. I'm sure we had more who didn't sign in. I think it was very successful. Several people said they thought this was the best show yet. That may be but I suspect that every year is the best show yet. Kathy O. demonstrated the Hidden 4-patch and the Disappearing 9-patch blocks. Jo-Anne brought in her card-making supplies and we all made valentines for our sweeties. Sandie was on hand to demonstrate the circular scarves we've all been making or just to talk knitting. We had a bed-turning show as well. Several members brought in old family quilts. We also showed the 4 friendship quilts made by some of us many years ago in Nimblefingers. Plus we had quilts that we just didn't have room for in the show. We had lots of delicious goodies to eat and punch to drink. Cathy Y. brought her daughter from Pennsylvania who was visiting. She was thrilled to be here on party day. Quite a few husbands visited, enjoyed the goodies and were glad of a place to sit down while their wives roamed. All in all it might very well be our best Open House yet.
