Sit and Sew

Today was Sit and Sew - always on the third Tuesday of the month.  A part of our guild, Quilters Squared, we meet at a church from 10:00 to 3:00.  Everyone brings along something to sew, if they wish.  You can just come and enjoy the company of a group of great gals!!  Today was a blustery day in March - winter is having a hard time letting go here in Michigan - but what a nice day it was for those of us who came.  I so enjoy this outing and I think everyone else agrees that it is a good time.  We look forward to being there.  Lots of talk and laughs and, naturally, show and tell.  It's the time to bring along what you are working on to show your quilting friends - also a good time to get ideas and to solve problems if need be.  We bring along new books that we buy for the other girls to look at and enjoy. 

Our usual routine is for those who do not bring a lunch (it is your choice) to go out to lunch someplace.  This is the second time that we have ordered pizza in since it was easier than going out in the wind and cold.   Any of you other Q2 members are welcome to come join us on the third Tuesday of the month.  I know you will be glad you did. 

Afterwards, a few of us stopped in at the Park Bench quilt shop and salivated over the gorgeous fabric there.    Pure eye candy!!   Naturally,  there was some fabric purchased.

Fun day, my quilting friends, I love being with you!!
