"I plan on being there between 12 and 4:30.  Although I might not make it till 1:00 and then stay a little longer.  I will be bringing the charity postage stamp kits if anyone likes to use them as starters and enders."

WIP cards

I came across these WIP cards for using with crochet/knitting, and thought it's a great idea that could maybe be used for quilting or any creative WIP.  http://froggingalong.com/2015/01/03/a-little-something-for-the-new-year/ It helps you keep track of dates and materials so when you pick it up months (or years or decades) later, you remember what you were doing and could get more materials, if needed.See More
