|(my stuff in the car on way to meeting)|
1. I had to think about what I am doing, and why
2. I had to speak in public, which is necessary now and then to not become too timid
3. I got to see lots of nice people, whom I like to be around
4. I got to see nice projects at the show and tell (this is Shirley H's quilt, which she is making as a charity quilt, hopefully it will be in the auction to raise money for Secret Santa donations, isn't it beautiful? she is one of the most meticulous piecers I have ever seen)
Because I didn't think that everyone would be 100% interested in blogs, I did take a little quick tip visual along. It was an idea I picked up somewhere in Houston, can't remember from who, maybe Fig Tree quilts?
Basically it is this:
To make a really cute lollipop looking block,
simply sew 4 half-square triangle units into a pinwheel block:
After the meeting I stopped by the store. I took my camera in to take some photos of the Saturday Surprise blocks, because I finally figured out a way to get them online,
and while I was browsing (and clutching my package of a new product I saw in Houston called Soft and Stable), and chatting, either Jenn or Jackie surreptitiously took a couple of photos of their own!! A- Ha!
