It's been a while

What's happening with this group? I have been missing meeting with all of my crafty friends lately. We do see each other in different occasions but for some reason we all have been quite busy with other things these past weeks and our meetings are quite lonely. Last Sunday I was all by myself, but at least Luca was with me and I made part of his Halloween costume.
But I do have some pictures to share from another week. We don't get much done, but we do enjoy some nice food together and good chats. And the kids have fun too.
As you can see from these pictures, the commons room has been painted blue. It does look better, although they need to work on it some more. It is kind of plain still. They have some ugly plastic flowers in baskets that I vote they should be removed from there, and we should make some mini quilts so that it warms up the room a bit. We are trying to get some funding from the university for that. What do you think? Here are some pictures of us:
Pilar...the gate keeper

Flor, on the top of the picture those ugly flowers

Mathew, thinking about his Halloween costume

Pilar again and her butterfly tattoo from the butterfly festival, very stylish, and I opened the blinds in the back and you can actually see some green while sewing, isn't that nice?

Luca, Tarzan-like and searching for the scissors

Me. I have been working on my mom's quilt, and not just getting it out and back in the bag, I have actually worked on a new border, that still have a while to be finished, but I am one step further.

I miss the meetings too! I think the mini quilt idea is great. I can donate one.
