Renee raised a toast to the new quilting year.
Joanne happily took our money.
The program committee did a marvelous job of having samples and sign-up sheets for the various classes we can take this year.
There was a game to get us all reacquainted.
It's good to be back with our quilting friends.
It looks like our executive won't mind working with us this year.
Vera and Gloria had a new challenge for us and by the mischievous look in their eyes, you can tell it's going to be a good one.
And then it was time for show and tell.
Just before I show you Jaynie's latest, let me show you that she was in Canadian Quilter with Anna as she was one of the two who nominated Anna for Teacher of the Year.
As well, Jaynie's work was at the National Juried Show and is the guide book. The guild library has copies of the magazine and the booklet; you can borrow both.
This peacock is magnificently hand embroidered. Debbie would be happy for suggestions of how to incorporate it into a quilted piece.
Colleen showed clothing and other items which she indigo dyed.
Renee showed the back of this because she used the quilt-as-you-go technique.
Being too cheap to buy a Harris Tweed purse in Scotland, I created one from Harris Tweed jackets I bought a Value Village and Salvation Army.
