July 10 2013 Quilting Newsletter
A guild or group is only as good as each individual member and its committee. I always think that belonging to a group is a two way exercise and there are expectations on both sides that need to be respected. Hmmmm that sounds like another article I could write……
Anyway, yesterday I attended the Mountain Quilters Friendship day and it was a fabulous day of wonderful fun, meeting new and old friends and the most delicious spread of food. These mountain girls are great cooks, I can attest to that! Some great show and tell too.
Unfortunately my camera’s battery conked out just after I took the first picture so I’ll have to get some photos from my friend and post them on the blog asap. (Note to self: always carry a spare battery!).
Last week I posted my article titled 20 Timely Tips for Quilters. These were 20 random tips I use to complete my quilting creations. I hope you find something here that helps you. Here’s the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art180831.asp
The forum has been busy with chat – lovely to catch up with you girls. I’m posting a forum question where you can post your three most helpful tips for quilters. Here’s the link and I’m looking forward to hearing from you: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/829117#Post829117

I must away and get friendly with my vacuum cleaner – my sewing room looks like a small explosion happened during the night. How is it that you don’t see the mess in the night, but come the cold hard light of day ……
Anyway, stay well and busy for the next week, when I’ll pop in again for a quick chat.
Cheerio for now
