Happy birthday and see you soon!

At minerva's Circle we are celebrating something most of the time. This past Sunday it was a special one. I think I haven't had so much fun in a very long time. It was a speacil day for Minerva's, we were celebrating a birthday and a farewell.
After her 3 week long trip to China and Korea, Amisha came back with a birthday in her hands! Actually her birthday was today, but we wanted to make sure we remembered and gave her a nice card that Pilar made.

This time too, we wanted to say goodbye to a good friend and member of this special circle. Clara, from Portugal is moving out to North Calorina, and after a great year of quilting, knitting, chatting, and sharing a special friendship with her, it was time for Minerva's Circle to say goodbye, or rather, see you soon.
Michelle made sure we were all color coordinated with the fabrics, bright and colorful, just like Clara. We made 9 blocks and all of them were quite different. We put black sashing and black back and quilted in yellow so you can see it clearly in the back. I think she liked it. We all enjoyed making it and some of our members didn't participate because we did it in a rush, but all their hearts are in it too.
Clara, we hope you enjoy this wall hanging and that you remember all your friends from Minerva's. We will have to visit you and see how it looks in the wall of your new home. Best of luck and warm wishes from Minerva's circle. More pictures here.
