the policy of the guild is that at the young age of 80 members are awarded a lifetime membership, Blanche is the first one to receive it and we honored her with a
"pot luck" dessert and a working evening
Members worked on our charity quilts. The guild makes lap quilts for cancer survivors and the mental health unit at the local hospital in Yarmouth.
I guess that extra jolt of sugar from all the beautiful desserts gave everyone a burst of energy because
Seven quilts were made in the span of 3 hours...
I wonder if that is a record breaker?
So what am I up to? It has been bitter cold all week and there is nothing more soothing than a spicy smell coming from the oven in a warm kitchen. You know after Christmas is over and the taste of that delicious fruitcake is but a memory;
what to do with the left over fruits...
How about fruit cake cookies?
Yummy! a favourite of hubby!
What about my sewing?
I received my block of the month
from "Keepsake Quilting". The appliqués are pre-cut and fused .. ..what would my grand-ma say? She sewed all her quilts by hand and there were no pre-cuts!
And here is....
my first block..
I decided to do a table ensemble with a four season theme
The centre has a 4- season wheel embroidered then at
each end there is an embroidered design of the season which is interchangeable.
Tomorrow we celebrate Grand-daughter's 24th birthday
They grow so fast!
It is so great to be part of their lives' journey.
She has an exciting career as a Social Worker, just brand new in the workforce.
