quilt guild

Last night I went to my quilt guild meeting (this would be the local guild, not the "one of the worlds smallest quilt guilds". I very judiciously took a tote bag full of quilt magazines, and patterns that I no longer need or want. Good way to clean out the sewing room right?
Well, wouldn't you know it, as I was putting them on the sharing table, someone else came in with an even bigger bag of FABRIC!!! Yikes! I lost all sense of will power and snatched up some pieces big enough for backings, then some cute as a bug cat fabric, then there was some pretty pink woven ribbon looking stuff, then there were some strips that I knew I could put in with my scrap strings, then there was this one piece that was sooooooooo ugly that I just knew no one would want to take it home....... well, you are getting the picture right? Yes, I went home with an even bigger bag of stuff to find space for in my sewing room. sigh sigh sigh.
Oh well, I'm over it! Time to go see if it really was as ugly as I thought it was last night.
If it is........... there's always the sharing table at next month's meeting................

Oh, oh, oh, I belong to one of those 'world's smallest quilt guilds'!! ROFL For 10 years it was made up of 2 quilters...myself and my niece who lives 3 hours away from me. We had guild meetings on an average of 3 times a year. *cackles* Now we have a third member that I get to see a bit more often...she's only an hour and a half from me. :D Gotta love our guilds!!! ROFL Oh, and I just found your blog, and I'm so glad I did! I've added you to my bloglines.

How funny. Isn't it amazing how that fabric just leaps into your tote...that is why we are all trying to bust our stash!

I think there are quite a few of the 'world's smallest quilt guilds'. My sister and I also have one that only meets once or twice a year because we live so far apart. We have a meeting scheduled in San Francisco at the end of the month.
