Hi, sorry, sick with a cold and my post on the quil-along will have to wait. That comes of having such an intense thursday. I've started a sewing circle at our church - St. Ann's Sewdality. Our first meeting was yesterday and 7 lovely ladies showed up with enthusiasm and plenty of ideas. We pray and make quilts, blankets or afghans for those in need in the community or our parish. And our first quilt is going to a parishoner who is undergoing surgery. Our patroness is St. Ann, the mother of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. She is the patroness of Christian families and among other things, seamstresses. Note: we ask for intercessions (just as a child would ask its mother for help in getting dad to agree to something) not worship a saint since Catholics believe the saints in heaven will help us.
They were enthusiastic about tying quilts and getting them done fast and of the 8 of us - only 2 do not have sewing machines. We range in ages from 20 somethings to 80 somethings. One will hand piece and the other will assemble kits from squares and strips cut by others. Our second quilt is one I am donating. I found this quilt at a yard sale. Here it is:
I bought it at the yard sale for $2.00 and it looks like brand new. I know some mom and baby are going to love it. Okay exhausted my energy - off for some tea and then a nap.
