May 20th Quilting

Post date: May 27, 2014 12:18:48 AM

Dear Quilters,

Heard that you missed my news recap last week and me! Tee! Hee! I was in *** for my Aunt fell, had multiple fractures and was hospitalized. But had lots of activity today, plus the soup luncheon, with 20 working and a stitch 'n. The Chapel's Singer sewing machine is broken! Boo! Hoo! Found this out when both M. and I attempted to stitch up a frayed seam for T. We'll be relying on R.H., P's husband, hopefully for a quick fix/repair! This machine is very special for it was won and donated by M, for her 1st place lavender, flower, print quilt at the Springdale Wal-Mart Quilt Contest.

The two pastel blue quilts, 'bear in the block' pattern, are almost finished; so N. volunteered tocomplete them at home. S. purchased black bear fabric on-line, so now we'll be enlarging the prints for the embroidered squares to match the bear fabric, a twin-bed quilt for her granddaughter. S. dropped off the custom templates made by B. for marking the BIG wedding quilt. NOW, the big task of marking ALL those ampersands (remember that definition?)! Hope you got to see M's latest project, a BIG, puffy, tied quilt, with plaid squares for husband/Howard and their Colorado cabin. We're short on BLACK embroidery floss/thread, if anyone has or finds some on sale.

Memorial Day - Monday, May 26th! Memorial Day is a time to pause and honor ALL who have served to protect our COUNTRY and our FREEDOM! Those who have bravely served our country, and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of life for us, we reverently remember and pay tribute to their sacrifices on this very special Holiday!

YES! "We're Proud to be an American"! God Bless America! Land of the free... Home of the brave...
