Today 13 ladies attended. I pulled out the sewing machine so that I could sew the binding onto the raffle quilt. Fran is taking it home to sew down. Next week I'll put on a nametag: Made by Nimblefingers and it will be ready to go! Hallelujah! We've been working on it way too long. So maybe next week I can pull out some old projects we started and see where we left off. Winnie brought in a bunch of her quilts-in-progress to cut so that she can sew them. Elaine found some of the fabric she needed for her music quilt on ebay and ordered it. It's her first time ordering through ebay so she's hoping it works out well. Tina brought in her cro-hook to show Elaine. The cro-hook makes a nice, thick, two-sided blanket. Agnes was back from her trip to Kentucky and Texas to visit her children. She's back in time to have lunch with us a Daryl's on Thursday. Marie brought in pictures from her grandson's wedding in California. He married a Cambodian woman and they had an American wedding and a Cambodian wedding. The Cambodian wedding involves the wearing of very fancy clothes which you change a couple of times during the ceremony. Marie thinks very highly of both the bride and groom so we all joined her in wishing them much happiness.
