A group of ladies got together on Saturday to create some patriotic projects.  The first group did Red Cross pincushions.  They turned out great.

Margie and Jennifer proudly display their pincushions.

How much more patriotic, 4th of July, red blooded American could you be with this beautiful lemon pound cake.  Bonnie surprised us all when she carried in this wonderful dessert! 
Thanks for sharing Bonnie!!
The second class of the day was a disappearing nine-patch quilt.  I have never taught a class where everyone had to bring machines and certainly not any sort of quilt class.  But after having made several of these myself as well as finishing my quilt class with wonderful quilt teacher Debbie Powell, I felt up for the challenge.  Everyone brought beautiful fabrics to work with and got right to work "whacking" up their fabric.  That was my phrase for the day!!
And speaking of Bonnie, look how diligently she's working with her new Bernette sewing machine.  I think we all want one of these new toys!!
Linda is amazed and proud at how her blocks are going together.  I think she's going to have a beautiful quilt when it's all put together. 
Jeri seems to be having fun while working on her block. 
Love that Connie is so busy with her fabrics, she doesn't realize she's covered in threads!
Pam is working on a beautiful quilt for a special person in her life.  Didn't know if it was a surprise Pam and didn't want to spill the beans!
Don't you love the wonderful browns in Carol's quilt.  She's going to be doing quite a bit of embroidery in her finished piece also.

Time is ticking quickly as our trip to Portland, Oregon approaches.  We're excited about going but have a lot to get done before we can leave.  I've been steadily working on class kits, trying to stay ahead of myself. 

Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th!
