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
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!!!!
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!!!!!
