Post date: Dec 12, 2014 2:51:15 AM

Dear Quilters,

"THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES" of 2014, volunteering many, many hours of stitching, and your dedication and commitment to Son's Chapel, QUILTING 50 QUILTS made it a BANNER YEAR, and a record quilt INCOME (being "good" customers, too); plus the great camaraderie and friendship of ALL! Today 19 B~U~S~Y quilting/sewing BEES were WE! We did meet out goal of getting the 5 quilts out of the frames, with the cross-stitch quilt finished and ready for binding, and thanks to N for volunteering to take the other 4 quilts (the bright frogs, pink "ring of animals", flowered/gingham squares, and the BIG pansy) home to finish during our winter hiatus. Thanks for the tasty treats for lunch, M's fruitcake, N's chocolates and P's German, cherry Stollen pastry. B got a call Monday from S.H. about "a dead man" in our Son's Chapel Cemetery. NOT humorous prank call or a ploy on words, but regretfully a tragic suicide.

Two quilts were sold today; and 2 quilts are already ordered for 2015! A gave a donation of fabric; N delivered the BIG, black bear quilt; and S. M. embroidered a set of cat squares. J, M and P were busy marking today, to prepare embroidery work to be taken home. S was busy on her computer, working on the Chapel's 2015 Directory; and she also cleverly and successfully "tea dyed" squares to match the off-white shades (NO! NOT "...Shades of Grey"). The Chapel basement/ our work area is all cleaned up, and "ready for a l~o~n~g winter's nap": B swept and tidied up, and took the laundry and trash. S was Mrs. Clean, clearing out the refrigerator, and scrubbing the sinks and bathroom, on her hands and knees! M took time to put insulation in the Chapel's windows before leaving for Florida.

Correction: We have gained SEVEN, new volunteers this year!

Arkansas Razorbacks will play in the AdvoCare Texas Bowl at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, on Monday, December 29th! Our entire family will be bowl bound... Go...Pigs...Sooie... RAZORBACKS!

"Merry Christmas to all... and to all a good night" and "Auld Lang Syne", wishing you a Peaceful, Healthy, Prosperous and Happy New Year!

Do keep in touch, "e", write or call... KEEP up your sewing/stitching/quilting skills... And stay warm and healthy!

SEE YOU next year, Tuesday, FEBRUARY 3, 2015!
