It's going to be a night of fun, fabric, food, fellowship (the virtual kind, anyway :-D) and all in the comfort of my own sewing room (where I don't forget to bring important tools!) in my PJ's and fuzzy slippers (or in my case, thick, warm, (possibly) dirty-on-the-bottom socks -- 'cause I can't sew with shoes on!).

I've got this one cut and ready to sew!
|Christmas Ribbons, also from Scrap Basket Surprises|
I've got this one half pieced!
Being fairly new to "Blog-Land" :-D, I'm discovering this and other new worlds of opportunities!
And quilting tutorials.
And tool reviews
And organizational tips.
And instructions for cutting up your husband's shirts for quilts. Hmmmm....
And Schnibbles clubs.
And charming girl clubs.
And strip clubs....just kidding! I've not seen any of those, and if I did, I would assume they were of the Eleanor Burns variety!!! :-D
As the new kid on the quilt block (hehe), I worry a little about "pushing in" or trying to keep up or whatever. It feels a little like going into junior high for the very first time. The remedy for that feeling, according to my mother way back when, is this:
It's a risky endeavor, trying to make new friends. But Jesus took the risk. He said "I no longer call you servants...but friends." (John 15:15) He took the time to let his followers know what He was up to, what the Father was doing. He opened himself up -- with a known future of pain and suffering!! -- for the grace-full purpose of being our friend.
