My "Gleðituskur" (the Happy Rags) are six perky ladies... and me... seven ladies at all ages, together in a sewing circle.
We've been dating since... well... think think... many years, some have been together longer than others, but all seven have been sewing together since 2004. And we're having a blast together -- really cozy and comfy. We've had a alot of great times sewing, knitting etc.
We all have (at least) one thing in common -- we all have Anniversary sometimes! -- and when that happens to one of us the others do something really bad -- we bully the birthday girl -- we go behind her back many times -- we meet secretly to make her an Anniversary Quilt -- so much fun :)
The process is usually the same, we decide on the pattern. Then we divide the blocks -- everyone makes 4-6 blocks at home -- and then we come together (behind the birthday girl's back remember!) to finish the top.
Last year, two of us had a big birthday, Helga turned 70 in October and Brynja turned 60 in December.
It's always a treat to surprise a friend :)
