President’s Message Michele Barnard “A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.”
– Carl Reiner
We’re bracing for yet another winter storm. According to the forecasts, it won’t be that bad here, but if it is, I have PLENTY of fabric for busting the stash and PLENTY of UFOs I can work on. Not to mention the new projects started this year already! Last month, I didn’t get much de-cluttering of the sewing areas done, but I did (I think) make a little progress. At least I don’t think I made things worse!
I finished my vision board, actually finished a small UFO, and completed the first two Project Quilting challenges. I have more PQ challenges and a mini-group challenge to look forward to.
The kittens continue to bring joy and chaos to the house. Unlike other cats I’ve had previously, they seem to be interested in the pins in the pincushion, so I’ve had to hide that. Sewing on binding is more challenging now as well. Well worth the extra effort! They make the winter blahs a little easier to deal with.
All of your beautiful quilts in show-and-tell also help with those winter blahs! So, keep them coming, it’s always my favorite part of guild meetings.
Yours in Quilting,
