Happy Groundhog Day!

What fun to celebrate a mild sunny Groundhog Day over at the Senior Center for breakfast and quilting!

The Pearson Road Community Breakfast Munchers

Dianne was binding another one of her pretty donation quilts as you can see in the foreground.

 In the background below, Sue was doing paid piecework for her granddaughter's entrepreneurial project. They are making sleeve-shirring loops that will be offered for sale as a fashion accessory. I teased them both for turning our quilting club into a third world sweatshop!

Below are all the carefully stitched up lavender and raspberry colored fabric loops ready to be turned and have their fasteners added. Good job, Sue!

Sue was also working on the sign that will be for The Sunshine Club here at the Alton, New Hampshire Senior Center.

Beverly was doing a little color-coding on her very detailed counted cross-stitch project for the Fire Department. Yes, that is a chocolate dispenser right handy, by!

My hand hemming on my own binding got a little further along, too!

Hope you had a fun day, too!

Happy quilting!

I gather the breakfast munchers wished to remain anonymous! : )
That looks like quite the cross-stitch Beverly is making!
How much do you have left to sew down on the binding?

This is a productive group! Many hands make the job go lightly

I always enjoy seeing what you and your friends are getting up to.
Happy binding!

Sleeve-shirring loops are a new thing to me . . . guess I will now look them up! At our P.E.O. (sorority) meeting on Monday we learned that crepes are the traditional food served in France on Feb. 2 (La Chandeleu / Candlemas / Groundhog Day).
