A Mild Diversion...

  I'm still knitting, but took time out to select and cut fabric for an upcoming event.
I'll be attending our Disconnected Piecers Quilt Guild retreat the first weekend in
June. Arleen is the chairman for our getaway, and she selected a nice handbag as
our group project. We're asked to precut and pre-quilt our fabrics ahead of time.
These are the fabrics I chose from my stash. My main fabric is on the far right,
and the other two fabrics will coordinate on the inside and outside of the bag.
The cutting is complete and the quilting will take place before I pack to attend.
I'm not planning exotic stitching patterns - probably choosing a cross-hatch
quilt pattern to secure the fabrics. I think this will be a fun handbag to make,
but it will be fun to use, too. Once I've made this one, I'm sure I'll make more!
 I also wanted to let you know that Adele was back with our Paneras group 
last night. This was her first time back since her nasty fall. She broke her
arm that night and is mostly frustrated that she can't crochet. She was using
a loom last night! That gal just never gives up and it was great to see her.
We also discussed a name for our group. Since we have knitters, quilters,
crocheters and embroiderers, I put forward the name "Fiber Divas". They
loved it, so henceforth we shall be known by this name. They want me to
 create a sign that we can place on our meeting table each week. We went 
around the table and giggled, prefacing each of our names with "Diva".

"Hi. My name is Diva Donna and I just put another project on my list."
I'll keep you posted on that one.

"Diva Donna" of "Fiber Divas" indeed. Excellent moniker. How fun to get together and laugh the night away. Adele certainly knows how to be creative one way or another. This new handbag will be beautiful. Now what shelf and section were these fabrics on? I don't remember seeing them. Wink! Blissful Day Dear...
