It was a grey morning – the perfect day for stitching. It brightened up by the afternoon – perfect for stitching out on the deck.
It was lovely to be back at the sewing bee and seeing what everyone is working on. There were lots of pieces shown in our own mini Show and Tell. Of course, there were lots of new projects started too.
Sandra Johnstone has a head start on all of us – she is working on a lovely Christmas Tree Skirt. I have a lot of Christmas projects in mind and I’m going to adopt her “Christmas in July” motto and see what I can get done – I can start with the projects I didn’t get finished in time for Christmas last year!
Kathy Parker was busy with some beautiful hand quilting – and rounding up names to fill in spaces on various Quilt Show Committees. She filled at least two spots today – and yours truly came home with a new job!
My thanks to Marlene Groutage for volunteering to look after the 50/50 tickets at the membership table next year. The spot was left vacant as Kathy Vallee takes over her duties as President. Watch out Marlene – the 50/50 table is a stepping-stone to the Presidency!
The Tuesday morning group has changed their hours for the summer. We are meeting from 9:00 until 2:00, so there will be enough afternoon left to enjoy the summer weather (if it ever gets here). The monthly lunch meetings at the Centre have been suspended until fall so we’ll be at the centre every Tuesday through the summer.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the Guild’s wind-up party. Set-up starts at 4:30 with dinner starting at 6:00. Please bring either an appie or dessert to share. We hope to see lots of Challenge and Cookie Tin Exchange projects.
