Oh my, I hate missing my tatting group....I had to do my quilt guild tonight and had to go early cuz I was in charge of refreshments. So, I didn't even have time to go by and say hello to my friends at tatting. When I miss seeing my group, it throws off my week. I don't feel complete...it is so strange. I have only been with this group of ladies for a little over 8 months, but we have certainly grown into a little family. Hello, my friends, I missed you and will see you next week. Save some gossip for me!
At the quilt meeting, we did have a great time. We had a lady come in that gave a demo of making Drunkard's Path blocks using coffee filters. I have done this method before but cut out my own circles. I never thought about coffee filters or something already made into a circle to use. Alot of our members had never seen this method before and that surprised me. I did a quilt like this about 5 years ago.
Now, that has started me thinking and I went home and started a list of demos/programs that I have seen or want to see again or that I could do. I will be sending this list to the program person and see if there's any interest in them. I encourage all of you quilters out there to remember that there are always new people coming into quilting that don't know or haven't been exposed to different methods, so share all the knowledge you can. That's how we can keep our crafts alive and going strong...pics to follow...
