That means you have 9 days to plan your green outfit and finish something for show and tell.

Also, Challenge #4 from Claire and Helen will be due at the March meeting. Do you have your project made with something that started out as something else for the final scrappy challenge?

If you were at the January meeting, the photos above should jog your memory of Helen's 
presentation.

Whether you're a fan of Shovelhead's underwear quilt or Sherri Lynn Wood's Make-Do philosophy there should be some interesting challenge pieces at the March Meeting. 

Meetings start at 1pm, usually end by 3pm and we get to stay and sew until 5pm when the library closes.

See you there!
