Donna's Story

Once upon a Quilt Guild.
Left of Ontario, right of Saskatchewan and somewhere right along the left margin
of the province of Manitoba, there is a right lovely little quilt quild. Our fearless
leader, Kathy, is right on top of things-she keeps us right up to date with fun
projects and never is heard to utter---LEFT, RIGHT,LEFTRIGHTLEFT. Audrey is
her right hand man and has left nothing to chance. She always leaves us
reminders right on the table where we can pick up all the instructions for the
work still left to do. Lori and Marg F. are right in the thick of things, teaching us
the right way to do things with all those left over pieces of fabric. Marg H. is our
resident expert in color co-ordination. "NO, move that block to the left, no- to
the right-Just a minute-move that one back to the left and take the left lower
block and bring it up to the right corner. There that is the right color match. 11
Lorna G and Sandra D make a great team on the sewing machine. They organize
the right order and all goes right along swimmingly-until Lorna is left with a
right-angled square in square instead of a pinwheel. Then the poor soul who
pinned the patch has left the building, and Evelyn slowly slides her left hand
across the table, right in front of Lorna, and that patch disappears faster than the
nine-patch-never to be seen again.
I will try to stay right on track with the remaining time left.
Show and Tell is the favorite part of our meeting. It is where we all get to see the
right fabrics put together in the right way to form the right pattern for the right
person for the right reason at the right time.
Cookies and a cup of coffee or tea is just the right mix for us all-even though the
cookies go right to our thighs, right to our hips, and there is always a little left
over to go right to our -well anyway, I digress.
This very special guild is chocked right full of many talented and helpful women
who will gladly spend time with anyone who needs their help. New members are
"always welcome and we miss all of those who have left us.
Nothing more of this story is left, so enjoy the fabric that you hold right in your
hand. If I did it right, you will now have a new addition to your stash. If I did it
wrong, you are left with your own fabric. If this is right, everyone please pass to
your right- no to your left. There-that's right.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a most blessed Holiday Season
