Halloween with my small group

The weekend is over and time to catch up alittle bit.

Halloween is not an event that I participate in and haven't for many years. For our small group meeting last week some of the girls wanted to have a Halloween party. I told them that I don't party for Halloween but I would wear black and help with a wall hanging project one of the ladies wanted to make. The evening was fun and I didn't feel out of my comfort zone at all.
Here is a picture of my friends.

We had a very enjoyable sit down dinner where we shared stories and really got to know each other better. This paper piecing group just started a few months ago through our new guild. Most of us didn't know each other before the guild came together. Isn't that exciting.
We met at Linda's house and here is a picture of the dining room table where we sat.

I didn't take a lot of pictures, here is one of the fabric for the wallhanging that was going to be made. We ran out of time so we made up four kits for anyone who wanted to make it. I will snap a picture and post it at another time of any that are completed. The wallhanging is called "The Witch is in" It is appliqued not paper pieced. Some of the gals love Halloween and thought this would be a fun project, that is how it all came together.

That was our small group meeting last Thursday night. We shared a lot, laughed a lot and hopefully built and strengthen new friendships.

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
