I knew a few members of the bee already, and enjoyed making several new friends from the guild. We are going to meet once a month at each other's home, and take turns doing mini-workshops or demos with various materials or techniques. I signed up for Shiva Paint Stiks and Tsukineko inks in September. Might as well, I already have all those samples I made for the longarm meeting.
Then, today, I got a package of goodies from the Quilting Arts store. Oh, boy, oh, boy! My quilt bee might be treated to store-bought cookies Thursday night while I ogle and play with my new toys!
More Angelina fibers...
a cool stencil and some better stencil paintbrushes...an interesting package called Silk Sensations by Oliver Twists...which I had to get out of its plastic wrapper and run my fingers through. Looks like some cocoons in there...I think I'll dig into the book first. The heating and air conditioning guys are here again, as our upstairs air conditioning is out again. We were leaking coolant out of a coil. Anyway, no way to work on the second or third floors for any sewing or quilting. And still no Bernina.
