Dear Son's Chapel Volunteers,
'Twas quite a temperate day, not too hot, humid or rainy for 19 very busy quilters/stitchers. We again shared B C.'s delicious "dish pan cookies!" (won't comment... as been there... done that before)
We tried out E's suggestion of moving our lunch table to the middle of the room, avoiding the direct AC vent. Table talk included emergency 911 access via cell phone or U-Verse with/without a land-line? After having phone problems, B shared info from AT&T. And T was soliciting residents of Fayetteville to vote for the Library issue today. Thanks to E for sweeping/ cleaning up today and B and C for staying late to help with quilts.
QUILTING NEWS: A very, very busy and long 2 days... getting 7 quilts marked, sandwiched, ready to quilt, 4 in frames and 3 to be quilted at home by G N and N. Four quilts came of the frames today, and the "2-faced" quilt was turned. Is it now on the front-side? or back-side? An anonymous donor dropped off fabric. And S M. donated yards of rose bud patterned fabric. J embroidered 2 sets of "Sunbonnet Sue" squares, and has bought matching fabric. M's's gingham/polkadot, appliquéd cats/dogs was bound and already is sold. And 2 quilt tops were sewn: a BIG, wild animal, crib size panel, x-stitched by J and the circus cage/train embroidered by D (3rd time's the charm in giving credit where due - to Dorothy).
Hope you're watching/enjoying the Olympics, the spectacular opening ceremony, and the record number of USA medals so far. Stay tuned... with the U of A Razorbacks competition in Rio de Janeiro yet to come.
