Today we had about 17 ladies--some came quite late but we ended up with a good sized group. Pat OR brought in the Sunbonnet Sue quilt made by her ladies at her apartment complex. Jo-Anne's partner, Terry, won it! She only buys raffle tickets in his name because he is always lucky--she's not. He won another quilt at a dinner one time, a big queen sized quilt! He is very lucky! Jo-Anne was pleased. She's planning on keeping it for herself.
We had lots of good food today. Two kinds of brownies, cookies, and lemon bars. Yum!
Tara from Amelia's Garden had given me a bunch of patterns that she no longer wanted so I brought those in as giveaways. And I'm trying to get rid of some magazines so brought those in. Unfortunately, I ended up taking a lot back home with me. I will probably take them for the Delmar guild's mini-mart in September if I can't get rid of them before then.
Today Pat and Fran were working on wool pieces. Christa was knitting a beautiful purple scarf, Ethel brought in her finished purple bag (I thought Winnie might walk home with it since she loves purple) and a block that will be made into a pillow for her granddaughter. Darlene was sewing the binding on a service quilt. Betty brought in a finished quilt for Albany med plus a couple of giveaways. On was a wooden tool. No one knew what it was until Ethel suggested that it was for darning holes in the fingers of gloves. Rosalind took it home to add to her collection of darning eggs. Rose was still making fancy dresses for her Victorian lady applique blocks. Jean brought in a crazy fan block. She started making this quilt in 2000. A UFO whose time had finally come.
We decided that we would once again sell items at the library book sale in September.
Lots of fun today.
