Monday Sewing

Oh my - it was loads of fun to be back sewing with the Monday Maniacs!!!!   Yes - I love my job, but I also loved what I did before my job.  If I had to choose between the two???   Can't!!!!!   So getting to spend some time with them most weeks even for an hour or two and the occasional day - well I guess that is what they call having your cake and eating it too!!!!   Can I have some more please????

I'd like to start of by saying that not only are they quilters, but they are very coordinated.  Do you see how the cars are parked????   Two black/grey/white - then a red, two black/grey/white, then a red - the entire sequence and it wasn't planned or was it?????

Color coordinated parking
 Joyce - with the BLUE car is banned to the other side of the parking lot!!!!

Joyce's blue car - banned to the other side of the parking lot

And what did everyone work on????   Here's a sampling...............

Maria brought in this bag for show n tell.  Nice bag - a bit of a bear in some spots to get that zipper in and that final binding!!!  But well worth the effort.

Maria's nice bag

I remembered that some of the Monday girls were working on the 365 block challenge as well.  Lynn wass working on hers. Here are some of her blocks.
