A busy bee


There was a lot of activity at the Senior Center today. Not only did we have a record number of stitchers, but we also had several people dropping in to pay their membership dues for the upcoming year. Sadly I forgot my camera (again!) and the battery on my phone was dead so I don’t have any photos for you.

The Tuesday Sandwich Board

Darlene was busy making blocks for a scrappy pineapple quilt. She tells us that the method she is using is much easier than the traditional pineapple block.

Several ladies (Sandy, Gwen, Kathy O’Malley, and Barb) were continuing to work on their bags. Although they have all followed the same pattern, the bags are completely different and every one of them is a work of art.

Sharon joined us today to cut out pieces that she will take with her when she is away for several weeks.

We gave Kathy Parker a big round of applause as she put the final quilting stitches in her hand-appliqued, hand-quilted wall hanging.

Sandra Johnstone was busy quilting her light and dark quilt, and Betty was quilting her kites.

Marlene is working on a set of placemats, and Annie was stitching the binding down on her kitten quilt.

Cathie is working on another baby project. Her grandchild, whenever he or she arrives, will be set!

Margie was moving further along in her Round Up wall hanging, and Rene sandwiched a beautiful antique nine-patch quilt.

Between taking memberships, I managed to sandwich a Community Quilt and do a bit of work on some door hangings for Olive Devaud.

Door Hangers for Olive Devaud

The hangings can be any size, as long as they fit on a standard door. Adding a sleeve to the back will help with their placement.
