And another...

Just two more flower blocks, 2 circles left to applique onto hst's and 12 circles to applique on a border strip. Making progress.

A couple of friends from Byron and I joined the bigger Rockford guild yesterday. They had a nice speaker from Missouri who talked about the Amish and their quilts. Very interesting. Next month they will have Billie Lauder speaking -- of course I will be in Virginia so won't be able to go to that one! It was a fun day yesterday -- out to lunch before the meeting, then did some shopping and met another friend for dinner and spent an hour in the bookstore with her after dinner -- we had a grand time. I bought the Emilie Richards book, Endless Chain -- I want to start reading it, but may need to finish the applique blocks first!
Tomorrow I have another BOM demo at the lqs, so maybe will get some quilting in in the afternoon.

Today was house cleaning and spending some time organizing paper stacks. We're drowning under paper here and it's way past time to do something about it. So, a little each day....

Gratitudes:
1. Barnes & Noble bookstores -- what a delightful way to spend a few hours.
2. I haven't spent any of my quilting allowance -- yet.
3. Phone conversation with Steph.
4. My lists.

I love the shape of the leaf on the left. So unusual. Our whole society is drowning in paper, isn't it? Too bad you will miss Billie, she's great.
