14 ladies attended yesterday--a small but happy group. Maxine was back and brought with her the beautiful rug she had hooked and was ready to add the backing. She and Marie go way back--they were hookers (rug hookers of course) together. The designs they made were just too beautiful! Maxine would go to a workshop in Vermont for a week to learn a new design and it paid off because her rugs are tremendous! Sandie had also finished her hardanger piece which she began in a class with the Embroiderers Guild. It too was gorgeous! I came in with supplies to sandwich a quilt. I was trying out my batting tape for the first time. No one else had tried it either so we were all eager to see how it worked and it did--work that is. With 5 of us pinning the sandwich was quickly made. Joyce joined us today. She has a kids sewing workshop today and needed to make sure the machines all worked. For those ladies who weren't there today, they missed a delicious pecan cake made by Winnie and a lemon cake/bread made by Daryl. Yummy!
