Saturday Happenings

I hope and pray everyone in the path and effected by Ike are staying safe! My brother and SIL live just north of Houston and were preparing to 'ride out' Ike, so many wishful thoughts are winging their way to the greater Texas and beyond where Ike is leaving his mark. Even as far north as Wisconsin is expecting rain Sunday night as a result of Ike...

Thursday was my first meeting as Chair of the Day Guild. Several of the members spoke to me later and said that I did just fine running the meeting. A few changes were suggested and tweaking will begin to help me perform my job! We had a wonderful speaker, Jean Brew, who brought her trunk show of Sunbonnet Sue quilts and goodies! Sorry no pictures as I was one of the 'walkers' who showed the quilts to the members. After the meeting, I meet my fellow night guild member and passed off the Angel Quilts for binding.


I made this little pouch I found on Randi's blog while surfing. She originally found the tutorial on Debbie Maddy's blog. While I like the little pouch, it won't exactly work for what I want but it is a cutie!


I have been making fabric panels to be made into quilted totes for my hostesses next week. So far only the panels have been quilted. The totes will need to be cut and assembled in the next few days.


I discovered a fast way of stash busting! I cut 12 yards into fq's to gift to my bee friends. The violet is the sate flower of Wisconsin. Cows are plentiful here is Wisconsin. I love ice cream and fortune cookies are because I 'feel fortune' to have all the bee as my friends :) (corny but true)

Hi Pat, hope your brother will stay safe. He didn't evac? Cute pouch. Our little quilt group is going to be making totes next Friday--I'm using the charm squares Becky gave me to make one! I think it'll be fun! You can never have too many totes!

Thanks for the link to the jewelry bag. That's a great idea giving away those FQs. Hope your brother and SIL stay safe.
