On Tuesday we had 20 ladies in attendance. Fran asked to use a sewing machine so I got out the one which I had just had in for servicing. It worked like a dream Fran said. She was making another jelly roll quilt out of pink fabrics. It should be very pretty. Deb and Linda spent the time looking at boats for sale on ebay. Deb wants to buy a new boat. She's working on building a fleet just for her. Pat OR is nearly finished with her penny rug which doesn't have any pennies on it but is beautiful flowers and leaves. Elaine was planning her Grand Canyon table runner. She has purchased fabrics with a desert look so that she can make a memory table runner of her vacation rafting down the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon. Marie said she was about birthday-d out. She had at least 3 separate birthday parties so was ready to get back to normal. She has a quilt top nearing completion so when she gets the back ready we'll head over to the Quiltsmith to spend some of her birthday present from Nimblefingers. (I know, I know... I still haven't downloaded the birthday pictures. I'll try to do that this weekend). Easter is coming up this weekend so Easter bunny Jo-Ann brought in a basket full of Easter candy baggies--one for each of us. Next year I'm going to buy her some bunny ears. She's very sweet to think of us. Jo-Ann was also taking lessons from Kathy O. on how to crochet the swirly scarf. She's already knitting one but wanted to know how to crochet one too. Cathy M. was knitting socks, Marguerite and Joan were cross-stitching and Agnes was crocheting more scrubbies. Everyone was keeping busy except me who had only brought books to look at. Someone brought in some giveaway fabric which seemed to disappear quickly. Anyway, as usual, a good time was had by all.
