Small and quiet

We were a small group today and there were several comments about how quiet we were. We had few drop-in visitors and perhaps the folks who were missing are the noisy ones! Bev dropped in before heading off to a job for a couple of weeks and Rene dropped in for lunch. Carolina and Donna S came late and left right after lunch; Georgie stopped in for a quick look in the library.

Colds seem to be making the rounds; Sandra J is sounding better but Barb M was really under the weather. She had a little nap in nursery room in the morning and we caught her napping / resting her eyes while sitting at her machine after lunch.

Reports from the workshop on the weekend were good, although no one brought their flowers for show and tell. Next up is the Circle Workshop on Thursday afternoon.

Something for you to think about – if you have library books on loan can you please remember to get them back in time for the June meeting. The coordinator for the library will be changing and I don’t want her to have to track down the books I’ve lent out.

The Mini Meez are back

Our teasing last week must have worked; Sandy T was back sewing with us today and maybe Carolina heard us because she was back as well. Now that the bi-election is over Cathy was back at her table. Margie is travelling; Sandra J came for the morning but left right after the Mini Meez meeting. Nina and Darlene came to the mini meeting but were off right after.

The two new Library books that I ordered have arrived, and one of them has already be taken out. 180 Doodle Quilting Designs is still on the shelf but On a Roll went home with Nina.

Flower Power happens this Saturday with Karen Berry leading. There may still be room in the class if you haven’t already signed up.

The Mini Meez

After taking a break to prepare for the quilt show the Mini Meez are back.

Scraps, HSTs and Log Cabins

We were missing a few of our regulars today – we assume they were busy gardening. Sandra T dropped in briefly; was it because we gave her such a bad time that she didn’t even stay for lunch? Annie also dropped in for a visit; she says she’ll be back sewing with us in a couple of weeks.

Barb M’s friend dropped in with two cases of Girl Guide cookies – the “real” ones! Over lunch our table was able to hear some first-hand accounts of the ferry disaster at Gibson’s on the weekend. Fortunately these weren’t first-hand stories as none of us were caught. Margie is back at tennis this week – please be careful!

Quilt show reports and binders are due at the meeting on Thursday. If you still have a magnetic sign for your car that should be returned. And payment for Hands Across the Water (in Sechelt on September 21st) must be paid either this month or next.

Everyone’s back in the swing of things

The Church is hosting a Spring Break camp and the corners were set up with some fun activities. We were able to work around it without any problem – I guess most of use are grandmas or great-grandmas and a bit of clutter doesn’t stop us.

We missed Kathleen today but Marlene very ably took over her spot and answered all our questions and kept up in order. Feel better soon Kathleen.

The initial quilt show report is in and it appears that we did very well at the show. There will be money to continue purchasing backings and batting as we need it over the next months. Full disclosure at the Business Meeting next week.

We were reminded at lunch today that the Mini Meez break is over; next meeting is the second Tuesday in April. From the few folks I heard from no one has anything ready.

Starting for next time

I think we all agree that we put on a very successful and entertaining quilt show this past weekend. But have you caught up? I know my energy is low and I’m feeling very much like a need a nap (in the sunshine) every afternoon about three.

Final show wrap up will be at the April Business meeting – be sure to bring your reports, binders, and any useful comments to add to the discussion.

The Thursday demo this month is an evening affair – that’s tonight @ 7:00 PM.

Yummy

There were lots of sleeves and binding going on quilts today – everyone is getting ready for the show. I’ve created an Event Page for the show; if I’ve done it right you should be able to share it and invite your friends. If it doesn’t work let me know.

We had a wonderful surprise visitor to the bee today. One of the recipients of one of our Community Quilts dropped in to say thanks. She was in hospital for seven months and really appreciated the quilt she was given. She left us some chocolate to share for our lunch; how did she know quilters can live on chocolates?

The Convenient Chef has given us her menu for the show. If your friends don’t want to come to see the beautiful quilts, they might be tempted to come for the goodies. We won’t go hungry!

  • 2 Soups – Banana Squash with Coconut and Thai Red Curry (Vegan) and Turkey vegetable
  • Chicken Schnitzel
  • Maple Ginger Steel Head
  • 4 Kinds of Salad
  • Coffee, tea, mineral water with juice
  • Desserts include:
    • Chocolate Coconut Mousse Cake
    • Lemon Cream Cheese Cake
    • Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares
    • Lemon Squares

Due to Spring Break and Easter there have been some changes to the Demos. The March 21st Demo is an evening event (7 PM start); it will be a Show and Tell of your newest (show) quilts and your first quilts. The April 18th Demo (Curves and Circles) will be an afternoon event (1 PM start).

See you at the show!

The countdown is on

Only one more bee before the show – bindings were being stitched, sale items were being created – we’ll all be ready.

Bev is back from her vacation – and she has no broken bones. I heard someone mention to her that Happy Hour shouldn’t start at nine in the morning. And we were thrilled when Barb K stopped in for a short visit. She’s not back to her sewing room yet but she’s doing a bit of hand work when she feels up to it. Barb M was working again and she says it will be a couple more weeks before she’s back at the bee on a regular basis.

Important meeting coming up this Thursday. The temporary labels and bags will be ready for everyone to pick up. If you can’t be there to pick up your bags, please ensure that you have someone do it for you.

The last Quilt Show meeting starts at 6 PM with the Business meeting following at 7 PM.
