Dear Son's Chapel Volunteers,

WHATZUP? With the weather of 51 degrees this past week (the lowest temperature since May 21st), and today's HIGH/HUMID 81* for 19 quilters/ stitchers. The calendar says its August! Is it still summer? or is it fall?

We enjoyed N's brownies and T's jello poke cake as our lunch treats. T and the Chapel did get press coverage in the Sunday AR Gazette, Profiles, D-1, D-2. Thank you T for the PR! Thanks to B, C, R for staying into the afternoon; B swept up and G cleaned the bathroom.

Two guests visited today; P mwanting her "Grandma's Flower Garden" quilted; and she's also interested in learning to quilt. Do hope that she'll come back. And a lengthy visit with N S (K's husband) who is now retired. (He made our tracing, shadow box and was pleased to see that we still use it.)

QUILTING NEWS: Thanks to N for quilting the "Blue Bird" and N for quilting the pieced dog quilts at home! And thanks to embroiderers for 2 sets of squares - "bugs/jar" by L and animals by J. The "owls" quilt was bound; 3 quilt tops sewn: animals, sea animals and transportation; and 2 quilts sandwiched. One "Ring of Animals" quilt was sold, and one quilt ordered.

Next week, the 30th is my favorite 5th Tuesday, hope to have "you 'all come" for "a sit 'n a stitch 'n"! With only 2 more weeks to get quilts done/out of the frames before our 9/10 Open House!
