Both the boss (Barb M) and the President (Kathleen) were absent today so “while the cat’s away the quilters will play”. We were in good hand as they left Sandra J in charge. We were also missing Marlene and Carola, but were glad to see Edie and Gail back sewing with us. Some of our new Guild members also came out for the bee – Donna S and Marion – and a few “irregulars” popped in (Dayle, Margie, Dawn). Georgie has officially retired and we were delighted to have her join us today. She has a fascinating new project and we can hardly wait to see it done. Our new tables have arrived so there is lots of room for everyone!
Remember that beautiful Dignity quilt Margie finished not long ago? It has made its way to the home where her mother resides. Some of the residents weren’t aware of the dignity program but one dear soul, when she learned of the purpose, said the “quilt was almost worth dying for”! You can’t beat that for a compliment.
The kitchen area was in use by a cooking class and we hoped we’d have the opportunity to be taste testers but we weren’t that lucky. The left-overs the ladies were taking home looked and smelled delicious.
We’ll be back at the bee on Thursday night for Kathleen’s sun glass case demo, as well as Friday and Saturday for Community Quilts.
