Magnolia Sewing Circle

~Polly's Posting~

While Barbara and I were down in Mississippi, Julia's church ladies met for their monthly sewing circle.   It was so neat to be able to see how their sewing circle operated.
I felt right at home and enjoyed pitching in and helping where needed.

Here is Julia putting a binding on a quilt for their annual school sale.

I love this picture of Julia's granddaughter, Georgiana on the sewing table with momma Sheila laughing.

Two comfort tops were put in frames that day and knotted.

I was amazed at seeing how Sheila, my niece helped knot the comforts even though she is blind.

Our sister June is on the right visiting with Julia's daughter-in-law Evie.  Jolene, (the only one busy quilting) is in the middle.

Here, four ladies are hand stitching the binding down.
  This quilt needed to be finished by the week-end for the school auction.
I was glad to be able to spend these couple hours with the Magnolia ladies.   Thanks Julia for giving us this opportunity.
