Silver Needles Quilt Show

It's Saturday, October 19 and you guessed it,
it's time once again for the Silver Needles Quilt Guild Trio: 
quilt show, luncheon and auction.  
This years theme:
Kansas Through The Eyes of a Quilter.
Here are some photo's from the Trio:


I use to just be nuts over snowmen.  O-Kay, I still am, that's how this quilt got into the mix.

Detail from a red and white cat quilt.  (Of course, I'd go to the embroidery for details!)

Ladies checking out the quilts on display.
Love those brights!

Filing into the dining room to view the decorated tables.

This year we voted on our favorite tables.  This table won first place.

Yum! Dessert.

My favorite item from the auction.  Unfortunately, I was not the highest bid.  Too bad . . .

Every year the guild does a service project and donates quilts to worthwhile organizations around town.

There was so much to see, so many ladies to talk "quilts" with, food to eat, prizes to win, and so much more.
 This is just a slice of what took place on this day.

Embroidery Class

My Beginning Cross Stitch was held on Saturday, October 5 and fun was had by all.  I had two students and the class ran long because we were all so engrossed in our stitching.  Both ladies said they hoped I hold another class so they could learn additional stitches.  Maybe I'll do that during the spring semester of CLASS.

Here is a photo of Pauline and Mary working on their stitching.
