Wow, the first month of 2016, has already whizzed by. I really wish time would slow down a little bit. However, every time I look up, a week, then two, then three have gone by before I know it. Our January Tudor Rose Sampler Guild Meeting was our opportunity to renew our annual M.A.G.I.C. (My Annual Good Intentions Contract) and dive back into our project baskets or deep into cupboards, find those projects that we put down and have not made it back to, and truly commit to completing them. We had another successful year with many participants finishing some of their lists and others completing all of their lists. Good job everybody! We also had a beautiful display of show and tell projects. Check them out below:
