Thursday, November 19

This past Tuesday we headed to Montevideo to our monthly meeting with the
Flying Goose Quilt Guild for their annual Christmas party.
We meet at Valention's (located right on main street) for supper. If you ever have the chance
to eat there the food is absolutely wonderful! They are especially known for their desserts!
I apologize for the poor photography skills I had that night. I had my flash turned off
in hopes of not gaining attention from everyone in the room!
As you may see, not only do the serve excellent food, but the atmosphere is
beautiful as well . . .
The goal of the night is not only to meet and get caught up with the various events
going on in the lives of the members, but also to do works for a good cause.
Each year, the guild members bring a sewn baby blanket along to donate to
Santa Anonymous.
All collected quilts will be distributed to young children this Christmas who are
in need of a warm blanket. This year we collected about 28 blankets!

Our Astor Manor fabrics arrived a couple weeks ago! We've have many big ideas for the fabric and too little time to accomplish them.

The bag shown above is from the newest addition of the Better Homes and Gardens magazine featuring various bag patterns, pillows, quilts, runners, wall-hangings and wool projects. This bag was one of the funnest, and quickest bags to make. (It takes only about 1 1/2 hrs. start to finish...cutting included) as the sewing of the handles creates the outer pockets!!!! If you are looking to make quick, fun holiday bags I would suggest this one!

Until next time . . .
