The silent auction is a fundraiser for the guild, to bring in speakers and to pay for the meeting facilities; things like that. The dragonflies are from a UFO that is at least 5 years old. I took a class in machine applique and ran out of the background fabric with only a few blocks made. So now..VOILA! A mini for the auction! The halloween one was a kit from a shop hop I went to about 2.5 years ago.
I was hoping to get at least one of them done by the time the next meeting rolls around (a week from Thursday), but things aren't looking good; my machine is in the shop getting a much needed overhaul. Maybe next month; they aren't due for a while, so the guild police won't be after me for a while! :)
