Wednesday Group

Went to Thelma's for Wednesday Group.  This is our hand quilting group.  We are between quilts right now, so Thelma did a nice little presentation on different techniques on marking quilts for quilting.  She even had sample fabrics and templates and stencils for us to try.  She even had handouts.  See what happens when you as a former teacher to give a little talk.....

While we were there, Gene gave us a tour of the greenhouse so we could see all of the blooming orchids.  The local orchid society, which he belongs to, rescues non-blooming orchids from Whole Foods and keeps them until they are ready to bloom again and then they take them to the hospital to the cancer patients.  There was a whole batch that would be leaving this evening, so we were there at the perfect time to see them.
