Bring Chocolate

That is what our quilters guild calendar said on Feb 12th. After listing our usual announcements, and the day’s activities, there it was. In bold print – Bring Chocolate to Share

We did – and then some.  Even the Hershey twins joined us and passed out Hershey’s mini candy bars.

They were a surprise – not on our calendar.

 

For Sew & Tell we had these quilts on the walls:

Deanna Hoy’s T-shirt quilt – made from her brother’s rock & roll concert T-shirts. Quilted by RoxAnne Borean.

The following items on the wall do not have photos (yet):

Eileen Roberson. Black and tan, rectangles made from free-table scraps.

Pat Gomes. Raggedy Quilts one from Country Cloth Class, two from free table.

 

This quilt is a collage of California’s National Parks. Linda Van B. made it. [She may be hiding behind it]

A Perfect Day For Soup

Temperatures in the 20s and 30s, snow flurries, then sunny skies, then more snow clouds would creep up and just as quickly go away. I’m no weatherman, but I think the wind chill factor was 11 degrees.

A good day to stay indoors, sew, and eat hot soup for lunch.

Crock Pots and warmers lined the dining area walls, warming their contents during our general meeting and announcements. By 11:00 am the entire meeting hall was a cacophony of delicious aromas, melding into one overwhelming craving for soup!

It was difficult to wait until noon.

 

Sew & Tell

Note: Sew & Tell will be moving over to a “Sew & Tell” page (under the FUN! menu).  All items shown every week will be posted there and our blog (this page) will have other breaking news, tricks & treats, maybe a pattern or two. I never know.
