Carol is proving to be a fantastic photographer (with the pace of the meeting, it's amazing she got the shots she did this month with her manual-focus lens ... usually she's snapping multiples with her auto-focus and then editing to excellence) and she somehow always has a smile on her face. Even if she's confused or annoyed, she'll have an underlying smile. I like that.
Here's what I like best about the modern quilt guild of which I'm a member:
- It's halfway between my house and my Mum's, so when she's not off being retired somewhere, it's a great way to spend some time with her.
- It's the other side of my MIL's house, so I pick her up on the way. I like her too.
- THE SHOW AND TELL. It's amazeballs and for someone pretty new to quilting like me, that itself is worth the price of admission.
- The door prizes. Seriously. About half the people in attendance every month win something that someone else has brought. That's kinda rad.
- The demos. I shouldn't have ranked these fifth because they are really, really good, so let's not take this to be a numbered list. I'm going to change them to bullets just to be clear. There have been zippy pouch tutorials, wonky flying geese, super-easy-no-waste flying geese, bindings of all sorts and sandwiching on a small table - - just to name a few. So much knowledge in that group.
So yeah, that's what's been up lately. I still haven't finished the Creeper quilt, and in fact haven't even touched it in a while. I have to re-sandwich it and maybe take out the two quilt lines that I've already got in it. Maybe. I'll pick that up again after June 21st, which is when my top-secret Round Robin piece is due to be complete.
