Today was our last meeting of the season for us, and my last as guild president of the NYC MOD's! Four years ago I started the NYC group, in my loft, with a 12-15 people at the first meeting...Little did I know that it would grow into this fabulous group pushing 90 people, would become my community! I love these guys! We have so much fun at our meetings. Every time I turn around someone surprises me with some other fabulous quilt... Inspiration soars in this room! Today was no different... I gave my little farewell speech about how it all started, and got very choked up when comparing how nervous I was then, at that first meeting, and now, (How I was still so nervous) and being so grateful for all the good stuff that has happened in the past 4 years... This NOT the road I pictured my life going down... but I am so happy that it did. I love my NYC MODS!
They surprised me and Earamichia,the out going secretary, with "V" & "E" blocks... I just LOVE THEM!!! and they are ORANGE!!! E's were purple.... I heard afterwards that when they asked the guild to make the blocks for us that they all sighed, "thank goodness they were straight easy letters!" LOL! Waaay to much fun!
much to my surprise...
I was let in on a secret...
it was a hoax!
They GAVE me the quilt,!! and had me strung all along, to surprise me!
Yes they did, those rascals... I'm so grateful to have started this group, and have gotten to know everyone so well, we are very close group, and we keep it as rule free and all inclusive as possible... That's modern to us!
My ladies who helped make all this possible... Andrea, E, Andrea, myself and Kim...
Love each of you
and ALL my MOD peeps.
P.S. I'm rushing off, forgive any incoherent typing, I must grab that cab to the airport to buzz to San Jose for 24 hours... See ya on Monday!
