June News

What a busy couple of weeks it's been! Last week I visited the super-nice and oh-so-talented Lake Norman Quilter's Guild, and it was like a family reunion, I just love those gals. We talked about needle-felting and wet-felting and then broke out the wool 'n fibers and played, I'm telling you, those girls are fast learners! They made a beautiful array of needle-felted heart pins and everyone's was different and so pretty, you can see my sample in the photo next to my nuno felted scarf. And yes, I made the scarf, too, it's wet-felted from some very yummy hand-dyed crinkle silk that I hope to be carrying soon and also gorgeous colors of merino wool fibers. I love how it feels, it's kind of sculptural, yet light as a feather and drapes beautifully.

And this week we all piled in my mini-van and went to see Billie Lauder in Kernersville, what a fun program that was, we laughed till we cried, she is so funny. Who knew you could do so many things with simple squares and triangles? And the Kernersville group were the perfect hostesses, they had snacks and drinks arranged for us "weary travelers" like a 4-star restaurant, I've never seen so many home-made cookies in my life, yum! They were extremely gracious to all their visitors, of which there were many who turned out for Billie's special presentation. A truly enjoyable night; I especially enjoyed seeing all my quilting friends there, some of whom I only get to see at shows and such, it was great catching up with everyone. Can't wait to see who turns out for the Clemmons show June 13-14, I know those girls have been working hard to put on a great show...maybe I'll see you there!
