New Group, More Fun!



Last night I attended my first Silver Thimbles group. The women were so nice, and I had a great time! I had Mercidene and Chris from Spirited Quilters, and Barbara (who knows one of my coworkers) as tablemates. We learned, from Mary Ellen-Little Quilts, about new tools and from Pat, about new projects. I had to abstain from new purchases, however, because I want to get caught up with the WIPs in my life. There were a couple of tools and one kit in particular that are on my "next month" wish list. Take a look at Pat's blog to see how much fun the "Thimbles" group has at their many activities: click here!

I ran home after work, and before the Thimbles meeting, to pick up my sewing machine (which I did not use), and saw that the Blackberry Lilies I'd started from seeds last year were in full display. I grabbed my camera and photographed them so Mom could see how well they adapted to Georgia.

Sounds like you had a great time!

Your lilies are beautiful. I'm pretty sure I've never seen those before. They're very interesting.

It was a complete pleasure to meet you and have you visit our club. I can tell you were one of the gang within minutes of setting up your machine. We look forward to having you with us for allllll our Silver Thimble Adventures.

The lilies are beautiful--very different--I haven't seen that kind before. I am so glad you joined Thimbles! All the ladies are the most fun supportive, and welcoming people I have ever met.

Your flowers are just beautiful. I am kicking myself for not getting off the couch last evening and paying a visit to Friday night Thimbles. I hope you will be there next time. I would like to meet you in person!! YOu will really enjoy the zaniness of the Thimbles gang and our fearless leader- the Supreme Head Thimble. We let her think she is in charge on Staurdays
