November Divas Day

Our day began with "show and tell".  Joan and Dorothy both had "I Spy" quilts to show off but would not allow pix as they were not finished.  I brought my latest along and as it was almost finished (about half the binding needed to be stitched on) I took a picture of it.

Hobo Hieroglyphics - each block is a hobo sign indicating something - work available, safe drinking water, danger, etc.  I used the block designs by Debra G. Henninger in her book Hobo Quilts, but designed the quilt on my EQ7 program.  It's about 5'*6', which I find is a nice size for a quilt. 

 I put a legend and the block names on the back of the quilt. 

Our Gourmet Diva, Sue, was back in action with us today with her usual yummy contribution. 
Red pepper soup with corn.

 Chocolate from Ireland - personally imported by Sue as she has recently returned from her tour of Ireland, which she "loved" and would live there.  I guess I'll have to add it to my list of places to visit.

 Potato strudel and something I've forgotten the name of on puff pastry that was really yummy - how can it not be when pastry is involved?
I neglected to mention that we also finished one quilt top and have to blocks made for a more complicated top - assembly still required.  Next time.
