The Wednesday Gals quilting in our basement
2ND ST, LEBANON, OREGON... Today is the first Wednesday of the month so we had our potluck lunch instead of working all afternoon on Community Service (CS) Quilts. Sharing our meal were me, were Rusty, Marina, Gail, Leola, JoAnn P., and Sharon. Several of our regular Wednesday Gals were not here today.
Quilters seem to be such good cooks! We keep talking about doing a cookbook. Today was an afternoon for telling jokes. And they were quite funny, if off color! We get pretty loud down there. Chris says we sound like a bunch of chicken cackling.
We did get a little accomplished. Rusty ironed a couple of quilt tops, I practiced on my New Joy, Marina showed Gail how to do an embroidery stitch, Leola worked on one of the few unfinished quilt tops.
This has been a busy year for us. There are usually 12 or 14 regular quilters here on Wednesdays. Some people who can't come to our house work on the CS Quilts at home and a few others donate time to quilt them on their long and short arm frames. In 2005 we made and gave away 148 quilts.
Chris had me download MacJournal so I could do some blogging.
Since I have the ACQC web site up maybe some of the people who access the site may be interested in what's happening with me and ACQC. I put the site back on line about a year ago. Still trying to figure out what I can sell on the site that would be of interest to quilters and crafters. I want site to have a different feel and sell unique items, some of which I would like to make. It would be fun and I would like to make a little money to support my quilting habit.
