Those Mesa Ladies/ November

 I spent most of October traveling
as a vendor to Quilt Conventions.
As much as I loved that part of my life,
I also missed out on a few things back home.
This last week it was wonderful to be back again 
Those Mesa Ladies 
We set up tables in a classroom
at our church.
Most bring their machines
or do hand work.
We take turns bringing in lunch
in the midst of it all
a little quilting
and the bond and support of friendship
takes place.
Such therapy! 
 Show and Tell
is also a big part of our experience.
Renee just received 2 of her quilts back from the Longarmer 
and promptly laid them out on the floor for all to see.
Both are now ready to be trimmed and bound.
pattern by Sandra Workman
of Pine Needles
 Beautiful longarm work
by Pat Roche
 A lot of 
ooohing and aaaahing
took place as we stood around admiring 
 the details of Pat's work.
 The second quilt Renee 
received back is 
a varied setting of  
Drunkard's Path
This baby sized version
will be soon be ready for a future grand baby.
 Again, Pat's quilting just adds so much to each design.
 Julie brought her recently finished
Chevron quilt
Julie used a soft blue minkee for the back.
Because of the holiday's
we are taking a break during December
but, we will be back together 
at the end of January with
Those Mesa Ladies
