Today was a good meeting of good friends. We had 7 members attending.

Deanna showed the quilt she is repairing. It was a quilt that her husband got when he was in school. It was a gift from his mother. She was repairing the pieces that where torn. There were pieces attached to the quilt for the restoration part. So, Deanna didn't have to look far for the replacements.

Deanna was also showing her quilt she's putting together. She has some really pretty blocks that will go in the corners. This is what some of the setting will look like.

Sue brought back her piece she made for her sister. Lynn told her she missed the photo for the blog, so here it is.

The meeting was pretty much spent on trying to decide what to do if TAS disbands. We talked about the volunteer work that TAS needs to get moving again. Many stated they are not sure if they would send in their money for renewal until they know if TAS is going to make it. We are an applique group no matter what. We will be paying stating in January for the use of the room. That way if TAS goes under, we are still a group. If TAS continues on, we will be a part of that as well. We are waiting to see where TAS will be by January.

We had a great time, and are looking forward to meeting again November 12th and 18th. The 18th is a Wednesday and is the third week because of the holidays.

Please come join us at the next meeting!

Today was a good day for our group. Kathy W and Lynn where the first to show up. After awhile they thought they would be the only ones, but then the others came.

We had a total of 5 members attending. Kathy W, Cis, Deanna B, Sue, and Lynn. Sue left early. Joyce sent word that she wouldn't be able to make it to the meeting this month.

Before she left, she wanted to show the stars she was making for her sister who lives in another state. We missed a photo of "Judy's Star" that Sue was working on at the last meeting.

Kathy W was showing her photo of the quilt she was working on. This is the quilt from the blocks we have been posting in the past. She wasn't able to bring it in to show, because the baby was due at the time she finished the quilt. It was delivered to the baby without a label, so when they go to visit, Kathy can put the label on it. We all loved this quilt!

Deanna brought in the extra pieces from her Celtic blocks we all worked on. She's looking for the "extras" that were missed. Since only 5 members showed up, she wasn't able to figure out who still needed to bring in their scraps from the quilt block they did. She's still asking for members to please bring in their extras.

Blocks are out there for the group to work on. Kathy W is still wanting the extra greens from the stems in the blocks. Please remember to bring in the scraps from the greens used in the blocks.

We had two people come and check up on our group. They are interested in joining. We let them know we are meeting in two weeks.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in two weeks - October 22, 2015.
