In all the hubbub of last week’s events, I still managed to make it to guild meeting, but only by the skin of my teeth.
They had me scheduled to present the program, and I was going to teach them all English Paper Piecing, and since I hadn’t given them any time to come up with an alternate program, I felt I really needed to be there and do it like I said I would.
We were moving My Cowboy from one hospital to another, so I just made him go with me since it was on the way. Was it mean of me to make him go along and wait for me to attend the meeting and give the program before continuing on our way?
He was a good sport about it.
The meeting was pretty short, since we’re not in the middle of any big things right now. The show is over, retreat is a ways off, and it was Fair Week in Kirksville, so some of the members were absent for that reason.
And we still had lots of show and tell!
Here’s Rose Marie with her Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, Old Tobacco Road:
Joan’s 6-year-old granddaughter pieced her first quilt while visiting her grandmother this summer! They used one of the Project Linus free patterns.
Sorry for the terrible pictures, but the room setup makes it very difficult to get good shots of show and tell.
And I think there are some new converts to the technique. It makes a great carry-around project!
Then I skedaddled on out of there so My Cowboy and I could continue our journey. He seemed none the worse for wear, having had to wait on me.
