I went to my ASG (American Sewing Guild) meeting last night at Joann's. It was a cold, rainy night but we had a good turnout. There was a lot of show and tell during the evening. Jan had baby blankets, Mary had baby burp pads made from diapers that she embroidered (very cute), Marilyn showed a real cute bag she made from scraps and embroidery work , Sandy showed embroidered pillowcases for her grandkids and a fabric book she made, Linda M. showed pillowcases also but for small pillows or travel pillows. She showed us how to make them and have them enclosed. I am going to make these and put pictures up to show. I showed a scrap quilt I was binding and I showed my bargello quilt. Everyone seemed to like it and were surprised it went together so quickly. (I told them it was made during the Super Bowl game.) I also told them about my blog and promised I would send them my blog address so they could look at it. It was a fun meeting and a good time was had by all.
Before the meeting, I did stop by two LQS on the way to the meeting to get a small dab of fabric for the borders for my bargello. Neither shop had the fabric. I'm going to have to go to another shop today to get the fabric. This just goes to show that I should have done this scrappy so I wouldn't have to drive to a special shop for the fabric....Live and learn. I'll take another picture of the finished quilt with borders as soon as I get them on...
