19 ladies attended today. We had quite a show and share--I brought in a finished kids quilt and my finished Norman Rockwell needlepoint; Joyce brought in a finished Eric Carle kids quilt; and Betsey brought in the confirmation quilt she made for her grandson. I will add pictures to the blog later. Winnie brought in two quilts she made for her grandsons which we helped her to tie. She wants to make quilts for all of her grandchildren which is a big project. She still has 7 to go! Some of the ladies bought yarn last week to make the scarf that Kathy O. made. I bought yarn to make the crocodile stitch purse Sandie made which is crocheted instead of knitted. If we all finish these yarn projects in time for the show in February we should have some very pretty items to see. Next week is our holiday lunch. We had planned to have it catered by one restaurant but 2 ladies ate their last week and said that it was not nearly as good as it was last year (the restaurant is under new ownership) so we're going to go local this year and use a Voorheesville restaurant. I can let you know next week what the price will be per person. I will pay for the whole thing and let all of you pay me back. So next Tuesday lunch will begin at 12:30 p.m. Bring your own table setting and you can bring a dessert if you like. Entertainment will be provided by Bob Suss who will show us his slides from their whitewater rafting trip in the Grand Canyon. Husbands are also invited. Hope you can come because I think it will be fun.
