Guild Day and Sewing Clothes

Today was guild meeting with Greater Columbia Quilters.  The program was a truck show and the inspiring story of one of our members.  She shared her story along with quilts she worked on at the time.   I love trunk shows and seeing what others do.  It stimulates my creative juices.  We also turned in our UFO list for the year’s challenge.  I only listed 14.  There were some I found that I’m not sure I want to finish.  I also have a collection of orphan blocks.  I usually try to put them together with others for charity quilts.
 Instead of working on quilt projects the past 2 days, I have taken time to sew some clothes for my granddaughter so after guild meeting I needed to shop for a toddler long sleeve shirt to go with corduroy jumpers I made yesterday for her.  I almost waited too late.  The long sleeves were about gone and almost all the shirts were spring short sleeve.  I finally found two that suited.   That gives her options with the outfits.  It can be a bit of a problem sewing for her when she lives 3 hours away.  I hope these fit and suit her style.  Here are photos of my efforts.  My granddaughter has requested finger puppets so that is on my list also between quilting projects.
