Our Guild started a new fun get-together. We are now holding Scrappy Thursdays. We had our first get-together last Thursday. I probably shouldn't have started another project but I did. I started a quilt named Trail Mix. It consists of lots and lots of scrappy squares of various sizes and rectangles. I pulled a bunch of my fabrics and started cutting. The pattern is layed out in steps so it will be perfect for our Scrappy Thursdays. The first steps calls for 32 4 patches so I got those done. But the most exciting news of the first Scrappy Thursday was that I used our Featherweight Sewing Machine. We bought it a little over a year ago on E-Bay and I just never took time to play with it. Steve used it in a Featherweight Care and Maintenance class so she is all tuned up and ready to go. She is so beautiful and just purrs like a kitten (or as a farm girl, she purrs like an old John Deere). I am really excited about using the Featherweight and our Scrappy Thurdays. Several women worked on scrappy quilts and some worked on finishing up some Christmas stockings for area children. We will fill them with small gifts at our Christmas party in a couple of weeks. Thanks Sandi for the idea of Scrappy Thursday. I already have ideas for several scrappy quilts. But first ...... I need to get another quilt or two finished.
