And She Sews!

Yay! I actually spent a few hours sewing today!!

The new guild that I have joined does a lot of community service quilts, and they have sewing get together once a month in the evening, and once a month during the day. Today was the meeting day, and my Mom normally deals with Thing One and Thing Two on Thursdays so that I can get some peace, so I went to the get together to see what they are doing.
There were about 10 ladies there sewing for 4 hours...it was so great...they have space provided to them by a local church and they are able to store a huge amount of stuff there for this project...they have about 7 or 8 sewing machines, cutting boards, rulers, thread, and tons and tons of fabric. So you can go and sew without bringing anything of your own. (All my other groups rely on member donations and 'bring your own' for this type of project).
I spent the day sewing a bunch of scrappy squares together into four patches, which I'll somehow make into a top, hopefully before next month.
I also took home a beautiful top to quilt.
It was a good day!
