(1) scratching an itch
(2) kids playing tag
(3) being reminded
Okay okay, I was reminded that I hadn't updated my blog, then it was hinted that "I've been visiting but you haven't been putting anything new up there" ... then I was downright chastised by my guild members (again), so here's an update, LOL!
Our guild is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year!
We had a three-day retreat at the Hilton Garden Inn in Hanover, Maryland, ending with an anniversary brunch yesterday.
I couldn't attend the retreat because of prior commitments, but I understand it was a success!
We had a few minutes to sit and chat in the lobby before the brunch started. Everybody who attended the retreat was enthusiastic about the classes, the accommodations - and being able to sew without interruptions for this and that and this and that!
During the brunch we enjoyed visiting with each other, we ate a wonderful meal, we remembered the members who have passed away, and we congratulated the recipients of the Coordinator's Awards.
Carol, our founder, shared with us how the idea for a guild came about waaaaay back in 1994 ... isn't it wonderful how a small group of like-minded people can grow into a very large guild?
Here's to a successful 20 years, Uhuru!

I'm sure Felicia (The Slow Quilter) will have more pictures to share later on her blog.
After the brunch Felicia, Pat, Charlene and I stopped by Walmart, where Pat and I found this fabric we just had to have!
Isn't this pretty? We each got a half yard
