. . . october quilt group . . .

. . . i ask you ~ 
what could be better 
than eleven friends sewing, 
talking, and lunching together? . . .
. . . not much . . . 
. . . i've said it before 
{and it's still true} 
that this is about my favorite day 
of each month . . . 
 . . . we were missing 
a couple of friends . . . 
. . . it's even better 
when they're with us . . . 
. . . hopefully next month . . .


. . . gina amazes me . . .
. . . her brain goes 
a million miles a minute . . . 
. . . she never stops . . . 
. . . designing and testing patterns, 
thinking about the next quilt show,
 scheming ways 
to get rid of her enormous stash, 
and planning a quilters' cruise . . . 

. . . and i'm all "i pieced an apple" . . . 
{actually several apples and cores and leaves and stems. 
and they're really darling! i'll show you tomorrow.}
{besides, my finger hurt.}


. . . but, let's be honest . . . 
. . . the real reason we get together 
is for the lunches! . . .
. . . this month's was provided by janet,
 who is obviously 
trying to raise the average . . . 
. . . everything was delish . . . 
. . . won ton tacos . . .
. . . genius! . . . 


. . . it's easy to see 
why i look forward 
to the fourth wednesday 
of every month . . .

Sooo much fun! Thanks for sharing pictures (the next best thing) especially because I could not be there.
Counting the days until our next meet up.
