Q2 Sit and Sew Day

Yesterday was our monthly day to gather at Chapel Lane Presbyterian Church and "Sit and Sew". Pictured above is Nancy, our new president for this year. Behind here is Marsha, a long time member of Q2, both of whom have chosen to bring along embroidery projects to work on.
Here is Deb looking very pretty and ironing fabric to use in a beautiful quilt she is making in the bargello pattern.

The ironing board is a popular place - the other Carol in the group is pressing some blocks for her wallhanging.

Free fabric!! Caroline brought along a pile of fabric for anyone who wished to come take what they wanted. What a great idea! I found some that I can put to use in Birds of a Feather - and I think one day I will bring along fabric to share, also.
Here is Caroline, the fabric donor, hard at work on her project.

Linda makes the most gorgeous paper pieced quilts - they are so intricate and awesome. She also designs them on her quilt computer program.
There has been a good turnout for this third Tuesday of the month gathering and we urge you to come join us for a day or part of a day with some very nice gals. You can bring your lunch or get take out, which some of the members do. Machines are welcome, as you can see, and this is also a good time for finishing the binding on quilts or numerous other hand projects. Many of us are doing embroidery. Even if you just want to sit and chat, that is fine, too.
Now, my fellow Q2 members, there are more pictures posted on the guild blog - Pass the Tiara. If you click on the little yellow duck on my sidebar, it should take you over. While you are there, why don't you join? It requires joining Google which is free and also easy. And, if you have any pictures to share or any ideas, contact Julie or me. (Click pictures to enlarge)

Looks like you had a great day just sitting and sewing with friends. I find it so much fun getting to talk, share ideas and of course sew on my project at the same time. Sorry I haven't visited in a while. Been catching up with family and friends.
