For some reason it seems to take me weeks to post anything about my guild meetings. CQG meets on the first Monday of the month, which really was two weeks ago. Don’t ask me why.
Every month I intend to post in a timely manner. I haven’t the slightest idea where the first two weeks of the month go. Poof! Just gone.
So anyway, we did something different this month and it was a wonderful success. We met early–about 9am or whenever you could get there–had a sew morning, ate lunch, then held our meeting at the usual time of 1pm. When the meeting was over, everyone who hadn’t done so, quickly packed up and headed home.
I was happy to sew with friends, even though it meant having to lug the sewing machine, projects and other paraphernalia to Cottontport for only three or so hours. I did get some things done, but nothing accomplished. Seriously.
My plan was to work on and complete a couple of blocks for the monthly block of the month. I completed one but it’s the ugliest thing. I refuse to take a photo of it in the fear that it will automatically upload to Google pictures and someone will snag it as a joke. Yes, it’s that ugly. I suppose I’ll be ripping it apart. Eventually.
Everyone else seemed to get all manner of sewing done. Then they piled around my machine, and I showed (again) how I make fabric from scraps. While I was doing so, I had a little aha! moment and came up with something I have yet to test. But I think it will work. Or maybe I just hope so. Either way, there’s something in there.
And that, bloggy friends, is my report on our meeting. We enjoyed the sewing time, talked, visited and generally were what my daddy used to call, “the hens in the henhouse.” I think he was implying that we cackled. He raised eight daughters: he’s allowed a bit of leeway.
Thanks for visiting!
