April 19

Dear Son's Chapel Volunteers,

We had record-attendance and a very nice day (NO rain this week, as forecasted, NOR "scattered showers" must have scattered elsewhere?) with 25 busy sewing bees! And soup lunch was a delicious variety of soups and desserts, etc. for a "full-house" of 39!

SHOW and TELL: D has donated more cute, knitted baby hats. Thanks D! N brought in another OLD, vintage quilt, with great historic documentation, also made by Mary Brook 1823/1906. This "Flying Geese" quilt was entered in a quilt fair in 1975, with accompanying Kansas City newspaper, saying it was over 100 yrs old. So now at about 150 years, with all the tiny quilting stitches, it is indeed a treasure!

QUILTING NEWS: Two more sets of embroidered squares from D -dogs with pink paw print fabric and ME - bugs/jar (glad they're all sealed up in those jars and not out crawling about). One quilt top was sewn and marked, and 4 quilts were bound, (ABC, circus tent, and 2 Rings of Animals).

Mid-way thru April... and recalling the lyrics of Bing Crosby's April Showers: Though April showers may come your way, They bring the flowers that bloom in May. So if it's raining have no regrets, because it isn't raining rain, you know (it's raining violets). And where you see clouds upon the hills, You soon will see crowds of daffodils. So keep on looking for a blue bird and list'ning for his song. Whenever April showers come along.
