Loose Threads meeting

My art quilt group, Loose Threads, met tonight.  We were a small group as Sara is up north taking care of her son who needs all the prayers you can spare, Barbara Sawyer's son was in an accident in Fresno so she had to head up there to him (I don't think he was injured - I didn't get any more details) and Grace Hoya was out of town.  So Karen, Anna, Janice and I had a meeting and we had a lot of fun.  First off here are some of the projects that we shared.
Karen Taber made this for Janice's birthday which was last month.
Janice made this for a raffle or prize.  It's beautiful in real life with glitter paint and glitz.

I finished this top but probably won't be quilting it until next year.

My Vintage Moments center finished - hopefully will be done with this top this weekend.
 We had some wonderful Dutch Apple Pie and ice cream in honor of today (November 16th) being National Dutch American Heritage Day.

It was my birthday month which meant that the ladies brought me goodies.  I requested strips that represented obscure holiday - well any holiday other than Christmas or Fall.  I said if they chose a really obscure holiday, I only ask that they put the date on the back so I will know when to hang it.  As usual, I was impressed by the talent of these ladies.

It's called Surf's Up - for Penguin Awareness Day on January 20th and World Penguin Day on April 25.  it's a two-fer made by Janice Minyard

Karen Taber and I have a love of Doxies in common so she made this back end of a Doxie in honor of National Doxie Day on February 24th.

National Zipper Day by Anna Koelewyn.  April 29th.   Yes, the zippers go up and down and all the fabrics are her own hand dyed fabrics.
So fun.  Sorry you other ladies missed it.  I hope we can all be together for our Christmas gathering.

It's been a busy week.  Tonight was Loose Threads.  Tomorrow I'm going to the Orange Blossom Guild in Visalia, Andi Perejda is speaking about quilt show judging.  I don't belong to that guild but really want to hear what she says about that.  Friday night is Party Party Party at Thimble Town (the almost all night sew in) and Saturday is the final Vintage Moments class.  Whew!

Thanks for looking!
