And the quilting fun continues..............

It's only been a couple weeks since our little group met at the Henderson Library to begin the work on our little quilts. We met again this evening and enjoyed a relaxing time of sewing and sharing chit-chat. That's Nichole on the left and Diane who finished sewing their squares together and are ready for the hand-quilting.

Diane's daughter, Sadie, joined us and she is studying her fabric choices and we all agreed they look great.

 
Darlene chose fabrics last time and laughed because she wasn't quite happy with what she had chosen..........and we all know that women get to change their minds! So, tonight she chose those pretty pastels and some button fabric that will make a cute little quilt topper. And thanks to Jacqueline for sending me all that fabric which I still keep making into projects and sharing with friends!
 
 
I cut squares, ironed fabric backings and helped wherever needed. And I enjoyed visiting with Lydia, Nichole's daughter. She is busy sewing some squares together...........
Lydia said she wants to grow up and be a good sewer. I think she is definitely going to do that. I can see it in her concentration! She is also going to be in 4-H and show a calf. She's a busy and fun little girl. :-)
Our next date to meet at the Henderson Library is Thursday, August 15th at 6:30 p.m. Come to learn to sew/quilt or bring your own handwork project and join us just for a time of "sewing and sharing"! And remember those words because that's the official name of the group..........The "Sew and Share Quilters" because we like to sew and we like to share our stitching fun and conversation! We talked about cookies so one of these times their might be treats to share, too. Send me an e-mail if you live nearby and would like to join the group. 
It feels good to be getting back into the rhythm of regular blogging. Now, if I can just keep it up!
Have a good Friday!

I'm sure Lydia will grow up to be a great sew-er!
(PS I recognize that fabric :D)
