October '08 Meeting

Sorry about no write up for last month, I was unable to attend that meeting. I know that it was held out in Emmett at Jeanie's and that you had a good time, good food and good quilty things and visited a quilt store out there!!!

On Wednesday, Oct. 29th, we met at Mary Lloyd's home and had an enjoyable morning sharing our quilting and learning about Wool Rug Hooking. Those in attendance: Kathi T., Diane S., Rachel L., Rachel brought a friend with her, Mary L., Renee R., Maurene L., Jeanie F., Carolanna M., Diane B., Jeri M., Jeri brought a friend Robin C., Monica C., Karin P. a former member, Lori B., Lori S., and Jan L. We missed a few ladies and hope to see them next month along with the new ladies.
Show and tell showed us and told us that the ladies in the group are creative and prolific! Good luck to those who are starting to design their own projects. See the previous slide show post for all the goodies.
Mary treated us to a light lunch of macaroni/fruit salad, rolls with butter and two very delicious cakes: pumpkin and chocolate. Thank You Mary. Very tasty.
Nedra Johnson was a guest speaker presenting her rug hooking hobby and showed us the many different aspects of wool. Texture and color come to mind. Thanks to Nedra for coming! It is always good to see something new and different.
We turned our friendship squares in to Maurene. She had asked us to just bring 2 five inch and 2 ten inch squares of fabric. She will then sew, cut and sew them again into a beautiful quilt called Five and Dime. Isn't that what we do? cut sew cut sew and on and on...??? Jeanie gave us black, white and red fabric to make a block for her to make a beautiful quilt. Above is an example of one already made. It is lovely. We will turn those in at our December meeting. It will be held at Jeri's house on December 3rd. We will have lunch and more fun, BUT first we need your ideas. In the past we've done the gift exchange, which we will probably do again, but we want an idea of something neat to do at the meeting/party. Is there anything you've done in a group in the past that you'd like to suggest? Leave us a comment! Thanks.
Happy Quilting...
