Elizabeth's Duck

Elizabeth says that he has several changes of clothes and that she usually change his clothes to go with the season or holiday.  When she told me about the duck I had to go by and see him.  She told me that whenever she is outside, someone always comes over and talk to her about it.  I think he is so cute and I have adopted him as our quilt guild mascot.  All in favor say ( I ).

Eye Full Of Paris (Eiffel of Paris) Arts Around The Square

Well here we are in October already, and it has been a great and wonderful year for our guild.  So much has happen, many projects completed. 
In September, we showed our stuff at the "Eye-Full-of-Paris" Arts Around The Square that was held on the last Saturday in September.  That was also the day that we had our drawing for our donation quilt.  We all wanted to win this quilt but the lucky winner was. Rick Albin, who is the husband of one of our members Kimmy Albin.  What a surprise for them.  I think she will enjoy having the quilt as much as he.
See the big grin on their faces?

We has so many beautiful quilts at the fair that day, everyone worked very hard to make it a success.

Cuddle quilts some that will be donated to the Le Bonhuer Children's Hospital

Denise was so kind to let us display this beautiful quilt. 

Mildred Puckett and husband. Where's your hat?

We are a very good looking group. And this is not all of us.

We had fun at our meeting in October and lot's of show and tells, do you wonder where we find the time to do all this creating? Here are some of the items.  I did not get a chance to take a picture of all the items because my camera's batteries were low. But I was able to get most of them. If I did not get to take a picture
of your quilt, please bring it to the January meeting so that I can take a picture of it and post it on our January blog post.

Show and Tell

Keeping up a blog is a lot of work.  I think the hardest part is having things to say that is interesting.  You want people to actually read it.

This blog post is going to be a combination of all the show and tell sessions that our guild has had since April.  I think that will get me caught up then I will try to remember some other tidbits as I go along. Show and tell is one of my favorite parts of our meeting because it gives us a chance to share what we have worked on during the month or to share some of the items we made a while ago.  Show and tell is also the inspirational part because we get inspired to work on something when we get home. So here are some very inspirational show and tells to help inspire you.
The fourth Thursday of August was our first "fun sewing" day.  We decided that we would meet on this Thursday to work on some projects, to share some projects and also to help each other with projects, we will not have any agenda for this get-together just come and plan on having fun sharing your latest project. These are pictures from our first one. It was a fun and productive day. Mildred was able to make her friend PJ, a sock monkey she has been wanting to finish for a long time. Helen Blake named me the mad flasher because I, of course, started taking pictures.
 Some folks don't like their pictures taken to so you have to guess who is in this next picture. As you can see she is hard at work on her Featherweight Machine.
