Fiber Junkies - Girlfriends

 Fiber Junkies had its March meeting at my house - our plans for the day - to work on printing with fugitive materials. You know what they say about the best laid plans......our gathering went from working/playing to celebrating and I might add, one of our happiest meetings ever.
 Even though we had lots of our stuff out...
 and ready to jump in...
We just had to celebrate the return of our 3 gals - Val, Gen and Denny. Val spends 2 months in the winter in Florida....we miss her so much and are thrilled she is back with us for the next 10 months.
 Gen (on left) has been gone due to family medical issues. Her dear hubby Ralph who was 92, passed away recently; he lived a very long, happy and healthy life. He lived by the rule - "A donut a day keeps the doctor away" and a donut a day he always had. He never had to take medicine, played golf up until the end and best of all had a wonderful marriage. A life worth celebrating and celebrate we did with our Gen...back with us.
 And Denny (left) who we've missed so much and haven't seen in months is still dealing with serious family medical issues but she did stop by for a short visit and we were so happy to see her. She has been cleaning out her studio and passing along some wonderful treasures to our group which you can see on the table.
 We also had a quick show and tell - Mary brought this lovely quilt with such a unique color combo.
 It's so striking in person.
 Kate has been experimenting with dry bleach which has some great effects.
Denny brought boxes and boxes of this stuff for all of us to try which we will do at the next meeting.
 And here...more treasures from Denny which we had a great time going through
So we never did get to printing but did go home with some nice treasures and best part got to be with dear girlfriends again - what a happy time.


  1. Just clicked through from Can I get a Whoop Whoop, I so enjoyed reading your blog. Please tell Mary I love her quilt, I may just have to pinch her idea.

  2. Connections with one's "peeps" are always the best times, eh? Wonderful!

  3. Great post. Friends and fiber treats. It doesn't get better than that.
