Introductions- name and favorite block

Guild Bee by Nicole
            Nicole worked on updating the list.  We will not be starting in January.  There are still 2 open spots.  Nicole will send out the instructions for her block in February, will make the block for that month, bring the single block for that month (so February for that month) to that meeting.  If a person wants a specific fabric, they need to provide that fabric for people to use.  Ie if Nicole wants Kona Gray, she needs to provide that to people.  She could instead state, please use a gray in the block.
