Almost ready

With just over two weeks until the quilt show there were lots of bindings and sleeves being attached to projects. Jelly rolls were popular today and there were some new starts. Barb M stopped in for a visit first thing this morning – she was off doing duty at Crazy Quilt Cottage while Deb sneaks away for some warm Mexico weather. Sandy T stopped in to see what everyone was up to. Rene was working on oven mitts but she packed up before I got a photo. Kathleen has that nasty cold that is making the rounds and missed today – didn’t it just do that?

Gail W made a fabulous gluten-free cake to help celebrate February birthdays – Happy Birthday Karen.

Lots of finishes today

It was a smaller crowd at the bee today. Maybe it was the weather that kept people away or maybe they were at home quilting like crazy people (as I’ve been doing). I stopped in while the ladies had their lunch and enjoyed a visit.

Don’t forget that all the quilt show applications need to be handed in at the meeting on Thursday. As always, the quilt show meeting starts at 6 PM with the business meeting following at 7 PM.

Avoid the rush

There were lots of faces at the bee today that we hadn’t seen in awhile – Mary Jane, Patti, Betty, and Kathy P. Bev is leaving on the weekend for sunnier climes and we won’t see her again until March. It was good to see that Margie no longer has her hand raised – she said she’s even able now to do a bit of free-motion quilting.

I stopped to get my photos printed for the quilt show form. I was chatting with the lady behind the counter as she recognized that I was there yesterday. She was looking at my photo and asked when the photos had to be handed in – apparently she has noticed a bit of a rush on the Thursday they are due! Who says quilters don’t make an impression?

Barb M treated us to cake at lunch – it’s her birthday on Thursday!

My battery was charged this morning but I guess I forgot to plug my brain in as I left the camera sitting on the counter. There was a lot of activity in the room and, as always, lots of colour.

Patti and Betty were both working on new projects, Angel continued with her placemats and Kathleen was making a pillow case from some of her Hawaii fabric. Rene packed up before lunch so I missed what she was working on, but Barb M had those lovely bright flowers out again. Sandra J and Kathy P were both finishing up their Camper Bags from the class over the weekend.

Karen added the most colour to the room as she is working on a quilt using Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Marlene has a new scrappy pattern; Marion won’t need to take the curves and circles workshop as she had a lovely top using both (she is also almost finished her scrappy log cabin).

Bev was putting the finishing touches to one of her marvellous quilts and Gail was back working with her batiks. I didn’t see what Mary Jane was up to but I saw several ladies admiring her sewing machine. Carolina’s hair is growing back in already, and her lovely orange/brown quilt is growing as well.

Did I miss anyone?

Do you recognize these?

The painting has been done; everything has been put back in the cupboards and library shelves have been restocked. In the process of clearing cupboards out for painting these items were found and we’d like to get them back to the proper owners (click on each photo to enlarge). If no one steps forward they will find their way to one of the thrift shops.

Carolina came for a visit and to show us her latest style. In support of her sister, Carolina has shaved her head and is collecting donations for the Hospice Society. Well done Carolina!

There were lots of beautiful works in progress getting ready for presentation at the show. Everyone was very busy and keeping track of what is left to do before getting the applications in at the February meeting.

Don’t forget about the Trailer Bag class on Saturday. Kathleen will open the doors at 8:30 AM; class starts at 9:00.

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.
