This has been a super busy week for me. I'm sorry to say I could not fit blogging into my schedule...so, I'm going to update now for the whole week....
You know what I did Tuesday night, yeah, that's right. I have to brag one more time that I got to go see Bonnie...
Here's sweet Bonnie:
All of the other pics I took were too far away but if you have her books, you know what they look like anyway....
It was great but I was sure tired the next day,but no rest for the wicked!!! He, he, he, guess who I mean?!
I went straight over to my friend's house after work and helped her with her knitting. She is doing pretty good. She gets confused easily but she is catching on and doing very well. Rhonda wasn't there Wednesday night but she has caught on and is already doing an afgan. She is doing squares out of the book, Teach Yourself Visually Knitting and will be putting these squares together. I loved this book and Debbie Stoller's book, Stitch and Bitch. These two books helped me so much as a beginner knitter and these are the books I told them to get. They like them too and are following along in the books to knit by...We are having a great time knitting together and will be continuing the lessons weekly.
Thursday night was my small group night. It was so much fun. We have some fun and talented ladies....Here's some of the show and tell for this week...
|One of Martha's lovely quilts.|
|Another of her quilts. She loves to applique.|
|A Christmas quilt top for the DAR, ready for quilting.|
|This was a mystery quilt that the group did several years ago. This was the second one of these that we did. This one is Jackie's and she said she's going to add a few more details or appliques before she quilts this one. I love the moose!|
|Judy calls this her left handed quilt. She worked on this while she was recouperating from hand surgery on her right hand....|
|This is our Mystery Row By Row wallhanging we are doing this year. Martha (doesn't she have a great smile!) is in charge of this mystery. Gee, I wonder what next month is going to be?!|
|This is what we will be making this year. Each year we have a fabric swap to make a quilt.|
|Here's a close up....this is called Wheel of Fortune.|
