Once a month I meet with
Those Mesa Ladies
at their church building.
Most in the group are neighbors
and I'm privileged enough to join along.
We bring our machines and spend the day
sewing and visiting.
Everyone works like busy little bees
and I always learn something new.
When I walked in, Holly was ironing blocks
at this low level.
She says she keeps her ironing board at home
at the same height, so it's easy to reach while she is at her machine.
Gina was working on
Scrappy Trips Around the World
made with bright, happy Kaffe fabrics.
Steph is making a large pinwheel quilt
for a grandson's birthday.
"Tate Is Eight"
Steph's companion fabrics
Amanda had stacks of
by my friend Lori Holt (Bee In My Bonnet)
I love Lori's latest fabric line!
The ladies in this group are big Lori Holt Fans :)
Vicki was also working away on
a Lori Holt creation.

marinated grilled chicken with blackberries
