November Meeting. . .

Nothing like doing November’s blog post the last day of Dec.  That’s right, I’m playing catch up.   I bet you can guess what one of my New Years Resolutions is going to be.  Yup, to post the kennel news on time.

Even though this was a month and a half ago I remember it well. 

The meeting was held at Sue’s home.  It was so nice to see some members who had not been for quite some time.

Jill W., Laurie, and Sylvia.  Laurie is our President this year.  She had to go to work, but popped in for a few minutes.


Joylyn and Susann.  Pam came later, guess I missed getting a picture of her.


Sue (her cute little granddaughter), and Amanda.


Show and Tell:

Amanda showed us her wonderful Utah quilt.  Can you believe she is making three more of these for Christmas gifts?



Sue made this fun Halloween quilt.


Pam showed us her daughters darling Fall applique quilt.



Owls are all the rage.  Isn’t this one cute?


Sue talked to us about a book she had bought.  Cut the Scraps by Joan Ford.

She has started cutting her scraps into 5”, 3 1/2”, and 2” squares.  She showed us some of the quilts she had made using them.





She showed us a new tool, a Friskars turn table.  It looked like it would be very useful.  I am thinking I need one.  Then we took a tour of her sewing room.



Look how organized she is.  She has divided her scraps by color.


It was a fun an informative meeting.  Those who were not there were missed!

Have a dog gone good day,

The Kennel Girls
