Today was the last guild meeting of the year and we had an amazing turnout. I gave out my little gifts to all the officers and committee chairs and they were well received. I gave each one a selvage pin cushion – I ended up making over 25 of them. Fortunately I still have a few left for last minute presents. I also made a beaded scissor fob for each of them with their name on it. Unfortunately, only 6 of them got the scissors to attach them to since they were backordered and won’t be in for a couple of weeks. I had to give IOUs to most of the group.
They made me a quilt! A wonderful quilt. It is traditional to make a quilt for the outgoing President and the one that was made for me is perfect. Of course, I also got elected to be President for a second year but that is another story. I love polka dots, bright colors and lime green – see what they did with that!
The background is white with lots of colored dots on it. To top it all off, the backing is lime green polkadots!
Michelle did a wonderful job of quilting it. Only another longarmer can understand how exciting to get a quilt – quilted by someone else. There are signatures and inspirational sayings written all over it. I love it!
