a fashion statementMarch 3, 2021
Hello all, Mary Ellen back again.
I’m finally off all restrictions after my cataract surgery. As limiting as they were, I must admit I didn’t mind being spoiled. This was a good time for me not to be allowed to do any snow shoveling! And it gave the teenaged godsons work to do. I also was able to get the boys to carry lots of things up and down my stairs for me. Being treated like a princess is not a bad thing.
Last night’s guild meeting was my first Zoom meeting. (I’ve been doing FaceTime on my mac instead throughout the lock down) It was fun to see so many faces and hear what some of us have been up to. I’m looking forward to our meeting in March–in person if all goes well. I hoping to have my first vaccination by then–isn’t the process of finding a vaccination such a pain?!
If you missed Betty L’s early bird special yesterday you can go to our guild’s YouTube channel to watch it (click here.) When the meeting ended I was perusing my newest issue of the magazine “American Patchwork and Quilting”. Lo and behold on page 14 it shows a kit for visible mending for sale. Just exactly what Betty was talking about. I visited the website they cited. (click here) Great photos, tutorials, etc. If you were intrigued and want to give it a try, I think this would be a good place to visit.
Does anyone know of a good place to get scissors sharpened? In the past we had a guy who sharpened scissors visit a guild meeting, and sharpen for us while the meeting went on. Perhaps the guild could sponsor that again. Hint. Hint.
Here’s today’s prompt for comments. What snack or beverage do like to enjoy while quilting or piecing?
(Remember that commenting earns an entry into the next drawing for blog candy–AKA prizes.) BTW if you won a prize in the last drawing and did not pick it up, I will bring the remaining prizes to our March guild meeting.
