Lots of fun and sharing on Threads Group Day =)




On the second Friday of each month ladies in our area are invited to get together.  They bring a sack lunch and covered drink along with any crafty-thread-quilty projects they'd like to work on. 
We aren't limited to quilting...  =)  We crochet, knit, spin fiber, cross stitch, weave, tat and what ever other fiber-eee projects you can think of!

For the last year so we've met at a local quilt shop called Thimbles and Threads.  But, today we decided to meet at someone's house. 




 We do show and tell which is such a fun part of getting together!  We learn from each other and get motivated to work on our current projects as well as starting new ones (OH NO!!  LOL)

Hand quilting without a hoop... (fun "shoe" peaking out there, huh?)

 
It was a GREAT day!  It's always so energizing and heartwarming to visit with good friends
that share common "threads"  =D

It's always more fun to 'create' with friends. Hope the pup is hanging in there.

I just saw over on Confessions of a Fabric Addict that you have generously provided a prize for the Hands 2 Help charity challenge. Thank you so much for being part of this fantastic challenge!

I live in a place where I have almost no access to guilds, classes, or quilt shops, so I really appreciate the online quilting community. Knowing that there are like-minded folks out there, ready to give something back to the world, makes me so happy.

Thanks again!
