Happy May Birthdays

Kathy Parker brought us a delicious Key Lime Pie to celebrate May birthdays. There were three honoured guests at the table – Kathy P, Cathy G and Angel. I think this was an extra special birthday for Kathy P!

We were glad to hear that Margaret’s husband is home and recuperating; we wish him a speedy recovery so Margaret can get back to sewing! A few of our usual crew went out to the Elders Lunch at Sliammon.

Looks like Spring

 

Although we still have to put up with some April showers, the flowers and greenery around the Seniors’ Centre certainly makes it look like Spring is here. It was a smaller than usual crowd today, but we were happy to have Donna H and Nina pop in for short visits.

Have you recovered?

Have you recovered from the quilt show? We had a good crowd at the bee on the Tuesday following the show; handing out the earnings from the Boutique may have had something to do with it. Clearly I was still lagging as I neglected to get the blog post written until now!

Who are those strangers?

Happy Tuesday to us!

We celebrated April birthdays today; no one in the hall happened to have a birthday in April but Annie brought in a wonderful cake. She says it was heart-healthy, but it certainly didn’t taste like it – oranges, pineapples, applesauce, cool whip! Did we spoil all that healthy goodness by adding ice cream. I don’t think so!

There were a couple of vaguely familiar faces in the hall today, ones we haven’t seen for a long time. Sandy T joined us for some hand sewing and Kathy P was back with a box of scrappy squares. Marianna got a big round of applause when she made her appearance; although not completely healed she is looking good.

Margaret says she is working on a gold-medal project, while Gail’s grandson just won a gold medal in judo in the Provincial Championships. We all admired the article on quilting in the newest Powell River Living; Kathleen was less than pleased to see they published the ages of the quilters in the photo!

There were a few quilt show items still in progress today but for the most part everyone has moved on to new projects. We’re all looking forward to the weekend; if you haven’t signed up for any jobs yet the sheets will be at the meeting on Thursday.

How many quilters does it take?

There was a good crowd at the bee today. A few people were doing some last minute quilt show finishes but there were also lots of new projects on display. Susan came over from Texada and she brought news of a great workshop she will be hosting in May. Stay tuned for more information on that. We were all concerned when we learned after lunch that Marianna was involved in a traffic accident on the way to sewing. We wish her all the best and a speedy recovery.

How many quilters does it take to plan the Quilt Show? Here are a few of the ladies who turned out for the show meeting this afternoon. Sandra is doing a fine job sorting out all the last-minute details. There is still lots of work to do before our set-up starts.

30th Anniversary Gala

The evening was a great success and it was so much fun to see all the “first” quilts and hear quilting stories from all our members and guests.
