KS My Stitch March Meeting

Sorry this post is so late, here it is time for another meeting and I’m just now posting the pictures of our March meeting. Oh well, here goes. We had our usual brief business meetings. We discussed:

1. Procedure on becoming a member. Guests are asked to pay the annual dues of $25 after 2 visits.

2. KS My Stitch will be a guest exhibitor at the Prairie Quilt Guild Common Threads Quilt Show, June 25-27, 2010 at Century II. We will have forms for each item that you want to display in the booth. Please contact Stephanie Macera or Tamara Gonzales if you would like to display your crocheted pieces in the show.

3. KS My Stitch displayed some of our guild members crocheted items in the windows at Twist. Thanks to Stephanie Macera, Wendy McBride, and her friend Steph.

4. We had show and share, a yarn swap, door prizes, and treats. Thank you to everyone who brought treats and donated your lovely hand made or non hand made items for door prizes. Now on to the show and share pictures. I know that’s what you came here for in the first place. Ha! Ha! Me too!

Linda G. made a cute little crochet bag.

Karen embellished her purse with some doilies.

Linda C. made a beautiful lady bug doily and a red, black, and gray afghan that she plans on keeping for herself.

Lesa is making a giant granny square afghan.

Rosina made a few doilies and repaired a few doilies. She also made a set of crocheted bunnies that are so-o-o-o cute.

Joshua even joined us at the evening meeting to show us the afghan and hats he made. He didn’t stick around but I was really glad he was able to stop by anyway.

Mary has been busy beading again. Beautiful angels and snowmen.

Donna got in on the hexagon baby jacket craze with me. I love how hers turned out.

Susan finished her hat afghan and allowed us to put it in the windows at Twist. We will also be displaying her afghan at the Quilt Show.

Jackie showed us her latest “Cute as a Button” baby jacket and she was modeling my adult size hexagon jacket.

Sharon is making an afghan out of these fun colorful motifs.

Ann showed us her first crochet market bag.

Susie finished her Jacob’s Wrap and loves her new bag that she got from Twist.

Jinna’s been crocheting with clothesline rope.

Lee is learning to knit.

Kathy made a cute little preemie hat.

Pam is crocheting the tunisian stitch.

Diane started one of many baby afghans that she plans on making.

Pat knitted her sweater and crocheted her hat.

Lucy’s baby afghan.

Sue brought her woven sweater to show us and I think she might add a little crochet around the edges?

I’ve been trying to complete a few things and started and finished the camera bag and the Hexagon Shrug.

We also learned to make some beaded bracelets. Thank you Pam and can’t wait to see everyone try their hand at drop spindle spinning at next weeks meeting. See you then.
