Welcome back

Today was my first day back since our Christmas break. It was lovely to see everyone and catch up on the news. Glad to hear Barb K is back home and that Penny is recuperating well. Although Annie wasn’t available today Al stopped in to pick up some Quilt Show Applications for her; he admitted that he had generously shared his cold with her. Margie stopped in for a bit, broken wrist and all.

Gail was having a bit of trouble with the foot on her machine. Both Barb M and Bev suggested it was the solenoid or a loose wire (who knew these ladies were so electronically gifted); at one point Gail said her machine had the error code CE, to which she commented that she guessed it was better than an FU.

At the usual time, Sandra J asked if anyone had brought a miniature for the Mini Meez meeting. I said I stayed away last week because I thought that’s when the meeting was; New Year’s was the first Tuesday so last week would have been the second Tuesday. Marlene said she was preparing for a meeting next week because she thought it was the third Tuesday. Sandra J was thinking the meeting would be the second Tuesday that we were back quilting. The three of us agreed to defer any future meetings until after the quilt show. But be prepared – we’ll be meeting in April, May and June on the second Tuesday.

Don’t forget that the demo on Thursday is an afternoon event – from 1 PM to 3 PM. Supply list is posted below.

Merry Christmas

I haven’t been around for a few weeks and it was nice to see everyone today. It wasn’t a large crowd but I understand it was larger than last week when the Texada ferry didn’t run. If you stay away too long you lose your spot – Barb M was pushed out of her spot by Gail!

The strippers’ work space!

A few of us were busy working on Christmas-themed projects or Christmas gifts, and some were carrying on with projects we’ve seen before. Barb M was working on the Days for Girls project, and Sandra J is nearing completion on her paper-pieced project. While we were busy stitching, Darlene and Georgie were in the kitchen “stripping”!

Don’t forget about the Christmas party on Thursday – I’m already hearing about how good the entertainment is going to be. And remember to bring your $$$$ – I know the basket the Tuesday group put together is overflowing with goodies.

Marion was really “into” it

It was a smaller than usual crowd today but most who were missing had good excuses. Kathleen is still in Hawaii, Rene has gone to Calgary for some emergency child care, Moreen is redoing her kitchen and I think Angel is still out hunting. We missed Darlene, ¬†Sandy T and Marlene but it was lovely to see Myrt in the hall working on her collage project. Gail had to go home before lunch as she wasn’t well; feel better soon Gail. Carolina joined us today but she’s off on a European adventure until after the New Year.

We were sorry to hear that Gwen has had another fall and another break; we are definitely going to have to wrap her in batting before she goes anywhere. Barb K is in hospital and we didn’t have any word on whether or not Penny is home yet.

Marion was busy quilting her Paris panel and not once, but twice, she caught her scarf in the quilting and had to do some repairs.

Don’t forget the community quilt days this Friday and Saturday. Come for two days, come for one day, come for a few hours – it’s all for a good cause.

It took awhile

It seemed like everyone was too tired to sew after our Texada Retreat. It was close to noon before all the tables were filled; stitchers wandered in for most of the morning and, eventually, we had a good crowd.

It was so nice to see Edie back in the hall and to hear from her that Penny’s surgery will happen soon – we’re looking forward to having them both back regularly. Kathleen was missing – she’s enjoying a well-deserved holiday in Hawaii. Best wishes also to Barb K.

Darlene is organizing a couple of very special quilts for Willingdon Creek. She needs a lot of 3.5″ HST (light and dark) so if you can help her out, please do.

Mini Meez

It was a miniature day and we had six around the table. Moreen won the draw.

Welcome back / Bon Voyage

Welcome back to Donna D who is back from her trip to Bolivia and Peru. Although the end of the trip was an adventure in itself, we were happy to have her healed and home. She says she had a great time in spite of her misadventure.¬†And Bon Voyage to Kathleen who is headed to Hawaii on the weekend. We’ll miss you at the Texada Retreat, but totally understand the appeal of Hawaii.

Final plans, travel arrangements and picking projects was a big part of the bee. It will be a catered affair so there will more time than ever to work on our projects – hence everyone is taking a little something extra!
