Fast forward to July 2016..............I'm 60 and retired, so I joined the senior center last month and some of the same gals are still there sewing every week. I met some new "young" gals there and I am again learning from the pros!! One lady is 85 years young and can she show you a thing or two. Another woman is so very talented in what she makes. These ladies make quilts like crazy and they donate them to the center and the center sells them to make money for the activities and to buy more quilting fabric, etc. These ladies also make quilts for Project Linus, Making blankets, quilts, etc. for children in need.
So, the flying geese runner I made is for the center. I hope someone buys it and the center can benefit from it.
And the fabric I showed you last post, was actually picked out for me by the director of the center, she used to be a interior designer and has a great eye for colors. This also will be donated to the center. So, I'm having fun, learning so much, and having a great time with these gals.
So, follow me here on Thursdays, to see the progress on this "Trip Around the World" quilt and whatever else I do on my own at home.
