Meeting of the Crones-May

     My wonderful fiber arts group, studioQ, met last Monday at Wendy's.  As always we had a great time...Wendy has such a lovely home..and she fed us!  The best chicken salad I think I have ever had! And a fruit salad and a crunchy snack cracker that I hope to make.
      We had our showing of our May Color Chip Challenge...

      And we had a few other "show n tells", too.

Bethany has a large collection of "Grandma's Flower Garden" blocks and she is using them in a more Modern Quilt fashion with plans to make several to give to family members.
Kay used her hand dyed fabrics for a quilt start

     Such a talented group!!!  This bunch has been very responsible in helping me stay grounded during periods of sorrow!!! Between them, my family, and neighbors...I am going to be OK!!!!
