Two meetings within two weeks? Unheard of!
It was a school holiday, so we took advantage of it and met at my house last Monday.
We played LCR with blues and Susan won - again! It was funny because she forgot her fabric and played with IOUs, which didn't matter since she was the big winner again. This fast, fun dice game is perfect for FQ fun.
We played my new board game, Quiltopoly, which is exactly like Monopoly but with a quilting theme. Very fun and cute.
The game was taking so long, we had to have a little snack.
Mary gave me these crackers at Christmas. They are incredible! They can be purchased at Whole Foods, for a pricey sum, but are worth it. We enjoyed them with cream cheese and hot pepper jelly - yum!
We endeavored to re-start our hat box project. Susan has come up with a unique way to incorporate vintage hankies in her design - oh yea.
You can see in the lower right corner how cute her little scaled down blocks are going to be.
Here are Jill's blocks - beautiful Jill!
I have the same two I did last time, but I pulled together two more to sew together soon.
For lunch I prepared sauerkraut and sausage. Being a good Polish girl one quarter, anyway, I love the lower east side tenement house smell of simmering cabbage wafting through the air. It was good comfort food.
Jill made delicious deep chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. I thank you, my husband thanks you, my children thank you. My thighs do not thank you :)
Thanks, Mary, for the cute cupcake pics! We missed you - again!
I'm so grateful to have quilting friends who can come over and play.
