Every Thursday is “Killer Bee” day! (see here) Business first. Next week is a shop-hop bus trek and the final details needed to be put in place. With the opening of the meeting, there were a handful of spaces left on the bus and by the end of the meeting no such vacancy!! Set! A few more bits of business and on to sharing………. (note: “thrifting” is one great pastime and, I know for myself, the thrill of the “find” at thrift/antique shops/’tag’ sales/garage sales canNOT be duplicated!!!!)……..The first gal picked up a pant/jumpsuit. Definitely potential for……
Or, how ‘bout a shirt becoming a
summer top? Or a man’s shirt becoming another (short)
sundress?? For the added length, she used the sleeves!! Yup! And then (after last week’s meeting), the gals did a workshop and made a take-along work surface….a fabric covered “folder” holding a pressing
surface, sandpaper area and cutting mat. The outer shape was pieces of hardboard that each gal had brought. Very clever and useful, don’t you think???
Just a quick word about the above quilt. The gal made it for her hubby’s deer hunting get-away spot……..any “excuse” for making a quilt, right gals??????
Love of baskets prompted the making of this quilt! Another “Winter Texan” planning for these quite cool days!!!!
Another example of aprons from men’s shirts. This creative gal is wearing the one made from the front of the shirt and holding one made from the back & yoke. Nice!!!!
One can never have too many awesome totes, hmmmm???????
After a brief break, the demos got going. Each took place in a corner of the room and were repeated/on-going. Great organization!!!!! Kudos to all!!!!!
“Secrets of a T-shirt Quilt”………
“The Perfect Yo-yo”…………..
“Wiener Sack Pillow Case”………
“Binding Techniques: Flange & 2-color” (sorry, no photo!)
And, “Mitered Corners”…………..
Have I mentioned that this group must NOT sleep!!!!!????!!!!!!
Activity continues at our little place, too. More deliveries/installs………..
Now, I really know that this little cutie has a better ‘home’ than its spot in the “livingroom”! So, while I was doing my “quilting thing”, yesterday, the appropriate spot was
located and done!!!
Another little area became Ms Juki
Jr’s new home…….
That window is going to help the lighting situation immensely!!!!!
Oh, and lest I forget, I’ve acquired a mode of transportation that is so much fun!!!! “Retro” definitely!!!!!!
So, I think I’ll leave you and go for a nice ride. Til next time………………
