Quilting with the CL's

Last night I had quilting with the Church Ladies (CL's).  We had 3 new ladies show up last night and these two on the right were new a few weeks ago.  See Judy in the pink?  She is from Wales.  I am involved in the Secret Santa Christmas Swap on Chooky Blues blog and have been taking the time to visit all the other swappers (you never know who or what you will find and it is fun!  Take some time and explore the blogs there.)  Come to find out one of the swappers is from Wales.  Not only that, but from where Judy grew up!  Small world, eh?
The 2 with their backs to the camera were new as was the woman in the foreground (Stacey).  Hey, you can see the orphan star on the table there.  I brought it for Dolores to put the hanging sleeve on and turn the binding for me.  Wow, they sure spoil me!
I got lots more blue and yellow string blocks back last night with promises of more to come.  We had quite a crowd last night and that was fun.  The only problem was that I never got a chance, in 2 hours, to get anything done for myself.  Oh well, such is the life of the "leader", right?  I got 4 quilts for LTW, 2 from our group for the Christmas sale and one from a CHV lady and one from a man who's mom made the top and is now passed and he wants it finished.  He donated a lot of fabric, books and notions to our group so I figure the least we can do is help him out.  Last week he brought some muslin for the back so yesterday before the meeting I sewed the 3 strips together (this quilt is huge).  Then tonight he brought the top and some ideas on how he wants it quilted (I'll just leave that up to LTW, thankyouverymuch!!)  So I was lugging in my IKEA bag today.  Poor LTW, she will never make it out of her quilting sweat shop with friends like me!  I'll try to remember to take some photos tonight too.

Do you ever?
At my monthly "Sew-n-Tell" I rarely do... I spend to much time grazing, chatting, & window shopping. (We meet in a LQS classroom.)
