As a result, I had to "jump start" my new year and did so in a most appropriate way. For the past year, a group of us have been gathering at Rosebud's Cottage, a local quilt shop, in their classroom. We gather about every two months or so for about six hours of stitching bliss. The faces in the group change a little bit each time because some will have conflicts, but for the most part we have a core group that is there every time.
Why do we do it? We enjoy socializing with other "like-minded" people! It's fun to spend the day together. There's always good conversation and lots of good laughs. When there are tears, we comfort each other. We enjoy seeing each others projects and trust me, there's a fair amount of enabling going on. And did I mention food? The gathering usually involves lunch; many take a quick break from stitching to enjoy a wonderful meal at the cafe next store. We enjoy getting together for all these reasons above!
Today was our first gathering of the year --- we had a full house!
Here are just SOME of the projects that were being worked on...
And a couple friends brought finishes to share with all of us; aren't they great?
This little mouse is just to die for! I need to get mine out and get it stitched!
A great time was had by all.
