Material Girls of Idaho met on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 at the home of Tracey Braithwaite. Fifteen members were in attendance, plus two daughters. First on the agenda was showing and viewing the pizza box exchange blocks. Each month all of the blocks come back so nice! Sew and Tell next: A discussion was held about the erasable gel pens by PILOT called Frixion. This is a very handy tracing pen that can be used in sewing and stitching. The ink will iron right off the surface of your project. Various colors are available, the pen can be found in most office supply stores.

Also, on sale right now at Hancocks Fabrics is a line of quilting fabric called M'Liss.
Tracey had available for us to sew, a fun tea towel and fabric for Fall. See one pictured below.
Some members shared a seasonal recipe of something from their garden. We enjoyed a pasta dish and some bottled relish. Tracey served a very refreshing slush and delicious Zucchini Muffins right out of the oven. Thank You, Tracey for all your effort to provide a very enjoyable morning! Take a look at this Sew Mama Sew link that Lori Shroath shared. It will lead you to the pin cushion she made for a swap partner. Pin Cushion Organizer. Next month our meeting will be held at Diane Beagley's home on Wednesday, Sept. 29. Thanks to all who attended and showed their sewing creations for the last month. See you next time.
