Another Fun Night at Guild

Last night was guild meeting. I met my best friend at our favorite coffee shop for supper, then we headed to meeting. I always have a good time. I think guild meetings are so much fun. 

After a brief business meeting, we had our program, and it was wonderful. Colleen Liebhart came to visit and presented a program on vintage aprons entitled “Aprons Tie Us to Memories”. She recruited some models from the audience, and they proceeded to model all the aprons Colleen had. So not only were the aprons great to look at, the models made it even more entertaining. Here’s Colleen (on the left) with Bonnie, who is modeling one of the aprons:

Doesn’t Kathy look adorable in her pink ruffles? That’s Marsha right behind her in a little floral flour sack number — cute, huh?

And here’s the whole crew — Kathy, Scarlett, Marsha, and Bonnie — modeling the collection of men’s aprons . . . too funny!

After the program, we proceeded with member Show & Tell. And NO, I didn’t have anything to show for myself, as usual — and I have no idea why, because I really HAVE been working! Maybe next time . . . Anyway, here’s Alice with her lime and blue quilt. It’s it wonderful? She does such a great job with her machine quilting, too . . . she used a variegated thread for this.

And here’s Barb’s quilt, made for her son, Max, who is an Eagle Scout. This rag quilt has all (or most) of his badges sewn on, with his name at the top, and “Eagle Scout” and the year at the bottom. Her husband helped her lay out this design — didn’t they do a great job?

And me — I hit the jackpot for no apparent reason I can think of. One of my fellow members, Meredith, caught up with me and said: “I have something for you”, and she proceeded to pull out of her bag THIS creation, and GAVE it to me! I am beyond thrilled, flattered, and excited! I LOVE IT! Meredith had purchased my Passion’s Flowers BOM patterns awhile back, and instead of making a quilt, she is using each pattern individually to make penny rugs. She adds buttons on the pennies around the edge, which only adds to the cuteness. I can’t thank her enough. I really really like this piece! Now to find the perfect spot for it to live . . .

Next month at guild, we’re having our Christmas Party, so we’ll have even more fun. I can hardly wait already!
