Today was Quilt Guild Tuesday.  I belong to 2 different guilds and one meets in the morning and the other meets in the evening.  My morning guild had a "make and take" day today.  Marcella is so creative and organized the whole thing.  She had little make and take stations that you could make a frog pincushion/scissors holder, a flowerpot pincushion/thread holder, a sweetheart needle organizer, a sloop bag, a star pincushion, and a drawstring jewelry pouch (which I taught).    She had fabulous door prizes all day and the grand prize was on Oleso Iron.  You got to put your name in the drawing just for attending and then your name in each time you completed one of the projects.  You also got your name in the drawing for every WeeCare quilt you brought and every CPS bag you brought (our guild charity projects).   Since I was teaching, I didn't get to make any of the projects but I did get the kits for them to make later.  I did get 3 jewelry pouches made needed for my demo and now I can use them for graduation gifts.  It was a great day visiting and sewing; my favorite "F" words, food, fun, friends.  Unfortunately, I didn't take a single picture all day and darn it, I didn't win the iron either.  Congratulations to LaTrelle for winning the iron though.

Then this evening, Connie's program was making "Dammit Dolls" and she gave us this cute little verse to go with them.  And nope, no pictures this evening either!  Here's the verse:

Whenever things don't go so well
And you want to hit the wall and yell
Here's a little dammit doll
That you can't do without
Just grasp it firmly by the legs
And find a place to slam it
And as you whack the stuffing out
Yell "Dammit, dammit, dammit"!

It's been a long, wonderful day and tomorrow it's back to all those quilts waiting on me to quilt.
