January BlackBird Night

Last night four of us braved the cold temperatures (10 degrees when we arrived) to meet at Carol's for the January BBD night out.  Toni joined us for the first time, which added to the fun.  She shared some of her fantasies with us......which involved needlework fibers of various types.  We laughed some good hardy laughs...and said we could relate.

Toni didn't have a chance to kit up a BBD project, so she was working on a morning glory box top - Betsy Morgan, I think she said.  She was excused from a BBD project this time!  Carol continued on with her autumn project, started last year.  She's probably about 3/4 finished now.  It's looking good.  Lenore continued work on Loose Feathers No. 5, Blackbird's Winter Delivery, shown above.  She also had Loose Feathers No. 12, Sweetheart Sampler with her, also shown above.  Both cute and timely projects.

After all her recent big finishes, Rose started work on the Blackbird Friendships project, a little wrapped pincushion designed by Sharon Schlemmer for the Kindred Spirits Blackbird Designs Special Interest Day last fall.  Rose issued the challenge to us to work on our kits, too.  Sounds like a good opportunity to get teaching pointers from Rose.

I continued work on February's Hearts.  Also a timely project. 

I feel a BBD weekend coming up.  Feels appropriate for the last weekend of cold January 2010.  Have fun.
