Almost Famous

Meet Emma. She is eight and she wants to be a Brown Bagger.
Emma is Joanne's great niece and she spent the day with us on Sunday at our monthly Brown Bagger sewing group. Joanne has been teaching Emma how to use the sewing machine and Emma has taken to it like a duck takes to water.

You may have heard about Emma before... she's the little niece that convinced Auntie Joanne to "help" her make nine quilts for holiday gifts for her cousins...

Emma and Joanne worked on a baby quilt on Sunday for Emma's newest cousin. Emma had a great day. She visited with everyone and got to ask questions about what they were working on. We stuffed her full of birthday cake and ice cream. Pat gave her some left over fabric to take home. We played hangman with her. And when I asked Emma if she would like to be in the blog, she was over the moon. For the rest of the day, every time she walked by me, she would say, "I'm going to be famous!"

I hope she's not disappointed...



The top is done!

Due to all the snow, we hadn't seen each other in a while, so there aren't a lot of projects to show off. We were busy catching up, commiserating about the snow, and eating french toast (thanks Terri), birthday cake (thanks Pat) and ice cream (thanks Sally). I think there was also a coffee cake and muffins (thanks to Sue), but I was full after eating the first three items...
Terri put the borders on her newest quilt top, Steppin' Stripes.
The pattern was from a recent quilting magazine (maybe Fons and Porter?).
Marion finished this little baby quilt.
Sally and Joannie were working on their Double Wedding Ring blocks.
 Here is the rest of the gang.

Happy Birthday to all of our March Brown Baggers: Terri, Sally, Me, Pat, Jean, Kate (an honorary Brown Bagger) and Judi (Thursday Girl). And Happy Birthday to our late friend Rochelle, we hope that there is a lot of fabric, especially purple fabric, in Heaven. Happy Birthday to our little bitty Brown Baggers: Julianna and Emma. And Happy Birthday to LarryPug, my darling baby boy.
