At Busy Bees quilting this morning I showed off the HUGS quilt that the Foothills ladies made for me and surprised me with at our holiday party last month.
I had planned to show off the quilt at the December meeting -
except I missed that one because it was the day following Tom's quadruple bypass.
For Show & Tell Melissa brought in this king-sized Log Cabin that she quilted for a customer - it was too big for her to hold up and show all of it, but you get the idea.
Monica is our new Charity Chair, and she displayed a number of the charity quilts that the ladies made last week. The quilts are destined for various hospitals (there's a new children's hospital opening up on our side of the Valley that surely is not yet on too many lists) and shelters.
Peggy made several of these cheery quilts from simple squares.
Betty whipped up a couple of cuties using some panels she had:

For those of us who 'need' yet another project <G> Joni is going to run a year-long Row project from Bee in My Bonnet; she'll give us the instructions for a new row at each business meeting, and the plan is for us to get that row finished before the next meeting. (We'll see how that goes...!)
January's row is the double row of tiny 1" squares at the top of the picture. But we will use an easy method (which I've been wanting to try) that does not involve sewing with tiny little pieces of fabric.
As always: WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER!
This afternoon was a trip to the cardiologist, where Tom pretty much got an 'all clear' - he doesn't have to go back again for 3 months!
And while we're on the subject of heart attacks, ladies, check out this short and entertaining "just a little heart attack" video so you're well aware of the warning symptoms for women:
