Show & Tell - June 28, 2014

Hi All - busy week here but that means I've been having fun!   FYI, after last Sat's meeting, Cheryl Minieri and I don'd our bathing suits and have a wonderful hour-long walk in SeaBreeze Sports Pool.  I tell you that it was totally enjoyable time.  So while the weather is good, and if you're in town, and you want to "cool off" after the meeting, bring you bathing suit and towel along and join in for "after-the-meeting-meet". 

July is here:  We have a project for this month that will be ongoing - eyeglass case(s) using some fun techniques like machine bobbinwork, machine couching, and ribbon weaving, and fun to use product like "Texture Magic".  This Saturday, we'll demo fabric manipulations using Texture Magic, bobbinwork and couching and look at fabric/ribbon weaving, too.  And this Saturday, if you can, please bring you sewing machine to help sew up very basic totes being made to give with each of the Women's Pantry blankets/quilts being donated by our club.  Totes are cut out, ready to sew up just 1-2 side seams - very easy straight seams that will be very quick and easy to finish.

Show & Tell:

Eileen DiSanto - man's theme fidget quilt that is so nice!

 Pat Pipa - finished yarn basket, crazy quilt block made into crochet needle holder and Strippy Quilt for pantry.  Pat used leftover strips to make top, then sandwiched together backing, batting, and top, and had some free motion practice fun and finished the baby quilt with self-binding method - Great job!!

Donna Pachy - finished her tedious yarn basket - tedious because the yarns used were very thin so lots more wraps around the form and top for her. 

Kathy Jones - finished her yarn basket and couple fidget quilts - using motif's from Lois's "fussy cut" theme fabrics.  Kathy picked up dogs and cards motifs and made her fidget quilts around the two themes.

Jane Swafford - finished yarn basket - And I got to again say thanks to Jane for being my human easel... Jane held up the poster board made with enlarged version of yarn basket instructions.  The darn poster kept falling down for me, so Jane took the matter in hand and solved the problem of my falling poster.  So Jane did not get to start her yarn basket at the meeting and really only saw the directions from "backwards and upside down"... so great job girl - you rock!

Linda Parr - made a crochet afghan from "ends of balls".  Super - looks like a strippy quilt only its down with yarn.  When one ball runs out, add on next yarn and by time done those little odds and ends balls create a masterpiece.

Mary Nargiewicz - made up some doggie bed forms for us to fill... Mary's away now until September - thanks for being so thoughtful, Mary!!

Suzanne Brown - shared a wall quilt version of the quilt class she is teaching at Sharkys this month.  It is done using rectangles and squares - good fun!

Edie Cave - wow'd us with some of her fidget quilts again - I think it was 4 or 5 - all terrific and very creative thought process.

MO Kitty Fund - Linda Lynch introduced us to Mo her beloved cat who is an inspiration... Mo and kitty bowl is going to be up on the sign-in table to receive any donations that Linda will see to it that kitty food and supplies are delivered to drop off sites around The Villages for the Sumter County no-kill cat rescue shelters.  It is kitty litter season here and everywhere and the shelters are overrun with the little furry darlings.  The shelters are in great need of food and just 50 cents or whatever you could spare would be such a huge help.  Linda, I'm very proud that you are making this opportunity for our club happen... thank you from the bottom of this "kitty-loving-heart".

As always, have a good week, be good, take care and God bless,
