I am so happy Spring has finally arrived.... according to the calendar that is. This past Winter has been a doozy and I won't be sad if we don't have a repeat next year. Moving on. We are getting ready for our Spring vacation tomorrow and I have to admit I am pretty excited for 80 degrees and sunny weather in Florida with my people. But before I go, I have to fill you in with the details from the phenomenal March MFGT meeting we had at The Little General. We usually start off the meeting with refreshments, announcements, and birthday recognition and then we move into our Spotlight member feature. This month I had the pleasure of getting together with the lovely Miranda to learn all about the adventures she's had in her life. I compile the information and share my findings with the MFGT group. We've been doing this feature for a year and it really has brought us all closer together ~ so much fun to learn about how and why someone started sewing and as a result turned into a wonderfully thoughtful person. Yep, I'm saying that everyone who sews is pretty much the stuff. Don't you agree? ok, after the Spotlight feature, we have Show & Tell - lots of talent and inspiration with this bunch, followed by a great demonstration and somewhere in the midst of all this theapy, we have Giveaways and a Swap. Doesn't this sound fun? Here are a bunch of photos from the last meeting ~ thanks to our group photographer Amy.
We are also collectively working on a Log Cabin
quilt every month. This means that we all try to make a few blocks each month with the idea of having the quilt complete by the end of the year to give as a gift... or it could be a gift to yourself. You obviously deserve it. A few of the ladies have a great start on the project. Here is Tillie's quilt front in progress ~ Love it! and Tamoe shares her blocks - can't wait to see this quilt complete.
Heather shares a super fun & easy Pocket Tissue Cozy demonstration.
Thank you Heather and everyone who attends MFGT! I love seeing you all every month and sharing our love for sewing with each other. If you are interested in coming to the next meeting, we meet the 2nd Wednesday of every month (except July) at The Little General from 12:30 - 2:00 pm. I'd love for you to check it out ~ there is absolutely no pressure to complete any said projects at any specific time.
Happy Spring! Love, Karen ox
