The March gathering of the Knotty Ladies took place at my house without our fearless leader Meridel, who is enjoying a well earned cruise to the Panama Canal after having her two granddaughters here for a week. As much fun as it is to be with our grandchildren , where do they get all that energy? Carol Kato brought information about the silent auction being held on 5/18/13 to benefit the Humane Society. So far Marcia has donated a beautiful “kitty quilt” and Lynn is donating signed and numbered animal prints. We talked about putting together a gift basket for the auction, possibly filled with goodies for pets or maybe goodies for their owners.
Betty was able to join us, her quilting group in Arizona has a long arm machine for everyone’s use, we’re all jealous. Betty brought her first project, a gorgeous quilt that she put together using the long arm. I showed off my “reversible” projects, Christmas tree skirt, recycled jeans quilt and Americana lap quilt.
