Happy New Year Country Roads Quilters

What a lovely meeting of Country Roads Quilters we had yesterday.  This photo was taken when we decided to replace saying, "cheese" with saying, "appliqu√©"!  We are showing off the 41 bags we made for Beads of Courage and we have decided to do it again in November.

It was great to meet up with everyone after the Christmas break and it seemed as if we did a lot of talking as well as our sewing.  We welcomed a prospective new member and founder member, Tina McEwen, popped in to see us during the afternoon, cue more talking.

We talked about forthcoming events, including several workshops, and had a great show and tell.
The ladies are so talented and create such a variety of different projects.

Although we meet primarily to quilt several ladies have spoken to me about the importance of the fellowship and friendship they find in the group.  We also have wonderful members who surprise us with yummy homemade cakes or delicious sweets to share.  What more could any one want?

  1. Hi Lis
    What a great lot of quilting friends you have. My groups, the main quilt club plus smaller house group, haven't started up just yet - I'm really looking forward to meeting up with them all.
