Calendar Girls, etc

prtls 006

Above are glass buttons made by my dear friend Mindy. She is the BEST!  I love buttons.  I always have. I still like playing with them, fondling them, arranging them, etc…

Today we had our Calendar Girl meeting at Jackie Carley’s house. Betty Bivins showed us this pretty butterfly quilt she did, & below is Carol Wight Jones’s “Stargate Portal”. The circle on the left has a semi-transparent fabric that is crinkled & sticks out looking very fluid like the special effects on “Stargate” the show, when the gate is activated.

Back at home, the yard is quite a mess,

but the rock is coming along well.

I continue to work on Jan’s quilt, & will show it again when I’ve got it done. Don’t expect any progress until after Sunday. I have to work at the hospital for the next 2 days. Bleh…

Deb!
I love the rockwork - it looks terrific.
Do your Calendar girls know the calendar girls stitchery designs. I bought a book with the designs for months of year to embroider that are all calendar girls- very fun...

It is always fun to see what projects you and your friends are working on. Thanks for sharing.
Regards,
Anna
