July 2014 Meeting

We started out with an awesome Italian Beef Pot Luck lunch.  Leigh's husband Bernie made us a huge pot of Italian Beef!! Others brought buns, chips, pickles, peppers.  Sherry made a lovely fresh tomato salad with mozzarella and basil.  To top that all off Kim made BLACKBERRY DUMPLINGS!!!!! that we smothered with vanilla ice cream (to cut the sweet as we say in the south!)

Can you tell I was smitten with the blackberry dumplings :-)

We had some show and tell.  Sherry had been busy making 14 minute slippers

Bottle cozies

 and a beautiful scarf out of some very lovely sparkly yarn!

Since our last meeting Leigh bought 2 Bonds, one for her and one for Doris, so we split off with Elaine giving Bond lessons

They were very busy and intent most of the time, but you can see the look of happiness on Leigh's face as she got something right!

One the other side of the room we worked on baby Mary Jane slippers on the bulky.

Everyone learned at least one thing and sometimes it was by making mistakes, which is I think can be the best way to learn!
