(August 20, 2013)
It was project day at the bee today. It is hard to believe we’ve had a year of these cute wall hangings and that this was the last of the series. Huge thank-yous to Barb for coming up with these patterns over the past year. Do any of you have the patterns for pieces in the series that just didn’t get done on the project days? I’ve made many of them but I probably have another year’s worth of patterns that I hope to stitch up. Who wants to take over the Tuesday project for next year?
Abby and Breanne were both back with us, and we’d love to see them join as Junior members for the 2013-14 season. Abby was finishing up the binding on her quilt, and Breanne was quilting her placemats.
Barb brought a special visitor for lunch today. Gail Moyls, an Associate member, was here from Ladysmith. Only former Guild members are allowed to become Associate members. For some it was a chance to catch up on Gail’s news; for others it was a lovely opportunity to meet a fellow quilter.
Lunch is always such a fun time. The conversation is always wide-ranging and there is usually a story that gives us all a good laugh. We were discussing liver today; most of us had to eat it as children but, with the exception of Gail Werner, none of us eat it now.
Annie and Al purchased a new BBQ over the weekend. I’m sure anyone who has had to put together a BBQ in recent years has a story to tell, but Annie had a good one today. After Al got the machine home and the box opened, he realized it didn’t have any assembly instructions. I don’t know how long he struggled with it before heading back to the store to complain. When he got there the store it was closed. Al was so mad he stopped a fellow in the parking lot and told him “the ***##//** in the store sold him a BBQ without any assembly instructions”. The gentleman responded with “I’m one of those ***##//** because I own the store”! The fellow opened the store and got Al some instructions; they were for a different BBQ mind you, but at least by going straight to the top Al got some satisfaction!
