Block of the Month Club - April

Chrissy Altelaar and Donna Starr conducted another enjoyable Block of the Month workshop.  This month was also a special birthday for Donna Starr so cupcakes by Chrissy for everyone.  I am not telling which birthday it was ... but I was dancing at Teen Town to Surfin' U.S.A. by the Beach Boys the year she was born! Yikes Donna you are just a kid!!

And according to Chrissy there was no gold star for our president Ms MacD.  She put her blocks together the wrong way and the sneaky girl sat there quietly doing a little reverse sewing until Chrissy caught her in the act!  You have to watch out for the quiet ones.

Thanks for the pictures Chrissy.

The Block of the Month workshop is on May 22.

Happy Birthday Donna.

Little reverse sewing going on here ???

April 2013 Meeting - Jan Anderson

Jan and her pal Barry.
We were treated to a very different meeting this month.  Jan Anderson - Exercise Therapist and quilter extraordinaire took us through our paces.  We learned Foot Rolls, Figure of 8's, Knee Rubs, Wrist Circles, and the amazing Wash Face in the Telephone a ton of other things to do to keep our joints from aching or just plain acting up!!  The hour went quickly and her humour amused us all.  Thanks Jan.
