Today 16 ladies attended. Last weekend was the Village Quilters quilt show so we had lots of talk about what a great show it was. Linda C., who is moving to Florida, gave me a box full of books and magazines to give to the ladies plus a lot of quilting stencils. I will keep the stencils here at the library in case anyone wants to use them. Linda OC got out another table to cut up fabric for more schlep bags. Rosemary also had some help from Agnes cutting out another Disappearing 9-patch quilt with pretty fabric she bought at the quilt show. Daryl limped in (she's walking much better now and walks without a walker). She brought in the quilt we made for her wanting signatures from the block maker's who hadn't signed the quilt. Cathy Y. and Marie had a big talk about the different ways of knitting. Not being a knitter myself I really didn't understand what they were talking about. Deb was back from Cape Cod. I think she's ready to go back again at any time. She had a great time kayaking on rivers and in the ocean. Ethel has started a new delicate looking cross-stitch piece and Daryl was cross-stitching a baby bib. June joined us again. She is working on a hand pieced hexagon quilt. And Louise is still making teeny-tiny hand-pieced hexagon flowers for a quilt. Marguerite has discovered the joy of machine piecing and has started a brown and tan star fling quilt. She hasn't stopped hand-piecing altogether though--she still has one she had already started to work on today. She also had added a border to her mile-a-minute quilt and brought in the finished top to show us. She's definitely become the queen of mile-a-minutes! Anyway...it was another nice day in Nimblefingers land.
