Today was my quilt guild’s monthly bee. We have guild meetings every month but on the 4th Wednesday we meet at a member’s home for an old fashion bee. We bring something to work on as we talk of guild business, accomplishments, disappointments, and children. Today we did all that and more.
The sun was shinning as it has most of this week. Spring has finally arrived and the daffodils are blooming and the grass is turning green again. It has been a hard winter as it has for most of the country. Lots of snow and ice. We had to cancel several events this winter. We are so happy to see the sun again. It rejuvenates us as it does the earth.
Part of the renewed energy is reflected in planning this year’s ‘raffle’ quilt. The design has been decided and now we are collecting the fabric to make the top. Members are volunteering to work on the committee and discussions on when to meet.
The lunch break is called and we gather, in this case, to a hearty soup courtesy of our hostess. Side dishes are brought by us and recipes are shared. Before we know it it is time to return to our respective homes, rich with plans and memories. We look forward to the next bee to share life with friends.
