Those Mesa Ladies/ April

 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 
Vintage Happy 
charm squares 
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.
Row Along
from the book
Quilty Fun
And as always we were treated to the most 
fabulous lunch.
Karen's made a salad with
marinated grilled chicken with blackberries
from the Our Best Bites cookbook
accompanied by a
Berry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette
*recipe found 
tomorrow I will show you Peg's
Show and Tell


Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

when I work with my scraps pressing and cutting for hours on end I put my ironing board at that level too as my legs begin to tire out and get sore-
lovely group that you have - our group on Fridays seems to be cancelled more than we have it lately!

Lori's designs are so fun how can you help but love them. Love the Kaffe trip around the world. And thanks for sharing the recipe.
