Saturday Afternoon Catch Up

Imagine my surprise when I was reading Jeannie's blog she gave me an award *VBG*

Thank you Jeannie.The rules for this award say to choose up to 10 people whose blog brings you happiness & inspiration and makes you feel happy about Blogland. Let them know by posting a note on their blog so they can pass it on. So I award, Amanda Jean,Leah,Meland Gypsy Quilter
Finn All of you bloggers are such a great inspiration to me I could go on and on.

Yesterday was a fun day at guild. Though the attendence is always low :( it was our annual service meeting. No speakers but we tie tops into quilts to be donated to the various charities that are in need. There were some really pretty tops. Some so simple but charming just the same. I can probably say only one quilt got the ??? from me as in what were they thinking. Oh well if it keeps the person warm I guess that's all that matters in life right?
Here's some of the ladies working hard on a pretty top.

and look they even made me do some of the sewing :P

I had to do the noon meeting which is mine anyway to run as 1st VP and then I went back to the evening meeting as it's such a poor showing and we had all these tops to do so from 10:30 when I get there till 10PM last night when we left- I had a 3 hour break for dinner, a glass of wine and aquick nap ( in that order) But it was kinda fun.

On the quilty front, I'm done with color 5 of 10 for the Girl Scout quilts, I dyed some fabrics on Thurday ( and will be mailing them out this week to the 100th post winners)

And I'm done trimming clue 5 of Bonnie's mystery
I see step 6 is up and we're making blocks Yippee!!

And if that wasn't enough fun in my life, I decided to take a class at Quilt University on Victorian Sewing boxes I'm not sure what colors yet have to shop the stash as they say and buy the notions, cording,elastic, ribbons,lace etc. Maybe tomorrow- I asked a question on one of them and am waiting for an answer from the teacher. This way I'm not making 2 trips :)

Jeeze Louise, just typing that makes me tired enough for a nap :P
