I'm looking forward to getting to know my swap partner and curious to see what I'm in for!
But for now tonight is Wellington guild night and Short Critic #1 is coming with me. He is going to his first meeting, now that he is a fully paid up junior member of the guild. That is not all the things I'm looking forward to for guild tonight. Our guest speaker is a blogger I have been following for a while. The lovely Adrienne from The Windy Side. Adrienne was a member of our guild for a while before switching to the Capital Quilters. To be honest I don't blame her, there seem to be a heavier contingent of modern quilters at Capital. Wellington tends to be more traditional.
I wish I had the time and resources to join both.
This month's block of the month was a lovely Autumn leaf block

Does anyone else follow Megan on The Bitchy Stitcher? She has decided to make a Laughter Quilt, asking for blocks with things that make you laugh written on them. Here is mine:

New pics to post soon of my latest students, a lovely 8yo girl and her mum have been coming to see me every couple of weeks to learn how to sew. They have almost finished a little doll quilt each, and I'll take a pic after their next session. As a thank you for teaching them, Dad picked me up a couple of goodies when he was traveling to America for work:

Right, off to get ready to go out.
