We had another inspirational and fun filled gathering this month.  Our decision to rotate the responsibility of organizing a monthly meeting among each member has proved to be very successful and less stress free for all.  We met at Gen's, high up in the mountain in Hendersonville.

This group is more of a show and tell, chatty, foodie group.  Of course we occasionally gather to make community quilts, but mostly we each do our own thing and share how-to's and inspirations.
Dort made this clever bag for her granddaughter who loves to draw.  Easy access for markers and plenty of room inside for paper.
Mary B. showed off her hand painted shoes.  She was recently asked (obviously by a non-sewer/crafter) where she got them.....with the accompanying remark that 'they didn't match'!!  Of course we all howled at that comment.
Cathy is one of our members who is still in the workforce (not associated with sewing)...she finds the most attractive clothing...this one at a small shop featuring hand made clothing.
The label of Cathy's stunning jacket.
Oh....did I say food??  Gen made these yummy ice cream filled cream puffs.
We have 13 members in our Mary B. and Gen shared the planning this month. Mary surprised us with goodie bags filled with items that were personal for each of us.  Like many....Mary B. is trying to downsize and her loss is our gain!

Judy is displaying a tatted piece of lace that was in her bag.
And of course....this bumper sticker was in mine!  Perfect.
Dort creates clever, detailed folk art quilts....these books belong in her library.
Here's our hostess Gen.....(I speak of her often when I blog about the Fiber Junkies....several PTA members are also in Fiber Junkies).  Gen can do it all....and does it at the highest level......
I too found a piece of tatted lace in my bag.
Connie is wearing a t-shirt that she created while demonstrating how to transfer (by rubbing) indigo leaves onto fabric during a meeting she hosted.
Here's Connie again....donning an apron that she received, Connie LOVES aprons....what an appropriate treasure.

For long time readers....perhaps you may find it fun to match a face to the names that I bounce around in my posts.

What a great idea on 'gift' giving via down sizing!! And how very thoughtful you each received such unique and special gifts just for each of you!
