Sept 2010 mtg-Diane B.'s

This month we met at Diane Beagley's home on Wednesday, September 29th.
There were 17 members present: Mary, Nancy C., Tracey, Kathi, Nancy F., Jeri, Robyn, Rachel, Carolanna, Lenette, Susan, Diane S., Jeanie, Maurene, Diane B., Monica and Linda.
The Pizza Box Block exchange has evolved into a fun part of meeting each month, as we view each new block. After showing the blocks we enjoyed sew and tell. Not everyone had items to show, but we enjoy all that was shared.
For those interested in purchasing thread, Rachel will be sending in a thread order to Connecting Threads. Please contact her.
Diane B., our hostess showed and explained how to make a "Halloween Hand", using muslin, wire and batting. It 'stands' on a can and can be used as a Halloween decoration. She also served a delicious lunch of Italian Peasant Soup, Rolls and two desserts, Pumpkin Pie Tarts and Apple Turnovers. Everything was very nice. Thank You Diane for your effort and hospitality.
Next month we will meet on Wednesday, October 27th, 10:00 a.m. at Jeri's.

Looks like I missed a lot. Wow. What great quilts & the food is too cute to eat. That coin purse is pretty sweet too :-). Wish I would have been there. I need to get my pizza box.
