Tu B'Shvat Get-Together

This Thursday is the Jewish celebration of Tu B'Shvat which is the 15th day of the month of Shvat on the lunar calendar.  The day represents the renewal of our trees, plants and fruits.  In honor of this each lady that came today received a little bamboo plant to take home.  Some call it the happiness plant.  And it worked!  Everyone was happy to get one.

Renee S made a clever apron.  She liked this fabric and didn't want to cut it into pieces so she came up with this idea.  Very smart idea.  Of course now she won't want to get it dirty.
Renee S is still getting requests from friends to make mini tote bags so here are two of her latest.
This is the bag Renee S was working on last week.  It now has the necessary finished pockets for cell phone, etc.

Sara spent the morning clipping her latest jeans rag quilt.  She, as usual, has had it especially embroidered with the name of that special person.

Here is Esther showing us her latest applique wall hanging.  She enjoys applique and does a beautiful job.  We were so happy to see her.   Since she moved to Beit Shemash we don't get to see her as often as we would like.
Susan has been quilting her little basket quilt.  I am amazed at how tiny her stitches are.  The quilt is just darling and will be so lovely hanging in her home.  Everyone that sees it wants to make one too.
