May 2014 Meeting

After skipping our April meeting due to SIX of us going to the Spring Fling Seminar in Peru, Indiana we are back on track with our meetings! This month we were back at Kim's house and we started the meeting with lunch (cos we are a hungry bunch!)

Next was show and tell.  Kim recently got a quilt machine from the Paducah Quilt Show.

Doris brought her quilt in progress....We love all crafts!! No JUDGING :-)

Sherry had been busy making items using some of the cool things she learned at Spring Fling.  One of the classes was on crochet stitches directly on the knit machine.  I also attended that class and it was very cool. 

 This is machine knit "half double crochet" 

She also made these slippers from the pattern that Diana Sullivan included in our Seminar Handout

Here are 2 pair of fingerless gloves she made.  Each with a different type of "hem"

Elaine showed us her new STUNNING jewelry!  Again, you notice we are multi crafty and we don't judge ;-)

And her Zentangled gifts for her granddaughter's birthday party later that day

We even got to see Kim's orphaned blind bunny named Circles!

Ok, now down to business.  We were so impressed with Sherry's items we begged her to demonstrate.  She complied and gave us a demonstration on both the slippers and the MK "crochet" edges.  LUCKY US!

A great time was had by all AND we learned new stuff.  OH and did I mention Barb brought 7 UP cake!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!  SUPER YUMMMMMMMM  :-)
