What a Showing!!

Oh how you Kennel Girls have been busy little bees. Almost everyone at our Nov. guild had something new for show and tell. It was DOG-GONE fantastic! I realize that you may get sick of my stupid doggy puns. But, get use to it, after all-we are the Kennel Girls. We had an excellant turn out and it was great to have Rae Ann and her new friend Jackie (who is really fun) rejoin our group. Alot of exciting projects are going to come about this year! Our first exchange is going to be 8"squares of Homespun plaid or checks in Fall colors. We will be doing this for 5 months. Each month you will bring 1 square for however many women sign up. It will start at our Christmas luncheon on Dec. 1st. If you're interested be sure and let Lynda know. Remember when cutting plaids and checks you need to open your fabric up so that they are cut straight on a line. We are going to be doing Schnibbles in Jan., April, and July. Not sure what these are? Come to the luncheon and find out. Also, Joylyn will be heading up our doggie treat classes. These will be held in March, May, Sept. and Nov. I'm confindent that she will have some fun things for us to do or learn.
