Pat Cumming, Denise Giadullo, Nancy Michel, and Kathy Livingston are our new inductees and were honored with certificate amd silver thimble. The blocks they are holding will be included in their member plaque with photo and brief bio to hang in the gallery in Arkville, NY. Kathy is a member of our local guild so it was exciting not only to host, but also to have one of our own so honored.
It was great that so many inductees where in attendance as well as quests. This is a group shot of all of us Silver Thimble folks. My Mom (with walker) is the oldest living inductee whom I was glad to be able to have her present this day.
Saturday was, also, 'Airing of the Quilts' along with promoting the QUilt Barn Trail in Schoharie County. Since most of us were at the Inductions, some of the gals hung them out Sunday. These are some of Kathy's.
Watch the background!
This just cracks me up!!!!! Curious bunch of girls!!!!!
And these are Steff's - love the setting on the deck. We are holding Steff to being sponsored into the next Induction in two years. Hi Steff!! She reads my blog.
I didn't get mine out as Mom was worn from the long day and I was keeping a close eye on her - no need for folks walking around the property on top of it all. Another day as they could all use an airing.
Today I'd like to get both settings of the Chandelier Bead Blocks done for the RSC19 with the color purple. They work up really quick.
To calm myself down - slow down - while prepping for Saturday's event I worked up the last few Block B for the complete 66 count.
I even managed to get a few rows put together and I hope to add at least 4-6 more today. Slow and steady with this one as it is going to be BIG.
Then I need to cut a lot of 2.5" strips from this new fabric for a new project. With all the scrap work, working with something new is a thrill.
