Killer Bees….photo recap……..

This group plans ahead!! Next year’s (yes, I said “next year”!) ‘challenge’ is already organized!!! Each participant will receive 3 randomly chosen color crayons in a sandwich baggy. These colors, plus 1 of the recipient’s choosing, may be used to create an item…….ANYTHING!……that will be turned in at next February’s annual luncheon. The committee had done up samples for motivation/inspiration and shared these (I believe I got the “rules” correct!)………………

IMG_5101 Donna (spearheading the group), led off with hers… seen in the background. It’s a small wallhanging depicting the quilt shops she frequents on her treks. The crystal markers were generous!!!

      The gals are from so many different home locations (all over the US & Canada) and bring all these individual techniques to the meetings….which makes for amazing displays and demos!!!!!!!
