April 22, 2012 marked the second visit to a member’s home with the view of discovering “Where We Create.” We drove to Bev L’s farm just north of Rio Grande. Her acreage includes a large pasture for dairy cattle, calf grow-out pens and moveable poultry pens. The only remnant of her former house was a bare patch of ground and a pile of huge sandstone foundation stones.
Upon entry into the cabin’s great room, the cherry cabinets and hardwood floors are striking. Bev’s love of weaving is also apparent–a floor loom is the dominant fixture in the room. Perched within reach of the window’s light are trays of tomato seedlings and other veggies.
After a brief tour, the Guild members discussed the Silent Auction, where the Guild’s wall hanging brought $250 for projects for the French Art Colony. We welcomed new member Cheri Burton who brought examples of her recent crochet work to share. The high point of the meeting was, as always, the Show and Tell.
We are looking forward to future meetings at our members’ homes, as well as an outing to Columbus.
