Tonight, Ricci had a little surprise for us. As we arrived she handed us an Easter basket.
She sent us into her sewing room for an Easter Egg hunt! The goal was to find an egg that had a dime inside. Those who had a dime received a special prize.
There was some pretty intense running and finding. You'd have thought we were all school children again. We don't call ourselves "Diva's" for nothing.
Margaret held her basket in an iron tight grip. We were also hoping for chocolate inside the eggs.
Pat is getting ready to be our featured artist at our Quilt Show on Friday. I'm counting the days: 3! Make sure to come and join us. It's going to be an awsome show!
Even though not everyone had a dime in an egg, Ricci provide a prize for each Diva. Superior Threads has just come out with a new titanium coated top stitch needle. I will be doing a whole blog about this new product, because this is leading edge market stuff. Trust me, you will want to try these new needles in your machine.
Thank you Ricci for our Easter Prize. I love it!
Margaret and Bev are the Chairmen over our upcoming Quilt Show. I am so impressed they still came to our meeting tonight with all they have to do. I know Margaret hasn't slept in several nights. She bought herself this new pink outfit, and made a matching bag out of one of her purse patterns.
We will have a boutique at the quilt show and Margaret made a lot of these little bags that will be for sale.
Bev just finished "Venetian Tiles" made with the X-Block Template. Even as co-chair for the Quilt Show she just keeps producing and producing.
I tried to take a close up of the one block. Notice there is a light middle strip surrounded on each side by a dark. Then it's cut out on an angle with the X-block template.
I loved the outside border.
With the left over scraps, Bev made another small wall hanging.
Bev was Miss Popular tonight. Ricci's dog "Lizzy" who is normally very shy around people, wouldn't leave Bev alone. Lizzy stayed right at Bev's shoulder, and kept sniffing her cheeks and hair. We wondered what perfume Bev was wearing tonight. "Eau De Kibbles"?
