Well, it was quite a day for all of us on Saturday.  Morgan brought her furkids, which went over well with the residents!  Sue was our Birthday Girl, so Lisa made a cake, and there were balloons, and ice cream from the kitchen.  :-)
I think a good time was had by all!!
We did accomplish a abit, and the good news is that we also have lots of things that are in process too for next month.

Well, we had quite a lot accomplished on Saturday.  We stayed in the room to exchange cookies, and have some BBQ from Dreamland (Karen picked up for us), and Karen made some delicious punch to share.  Definitely a lot happened for our sew day.  We had a resident of Brookdale, Gerogina Garcia, visit and stay to assist Johnny in pinning.  I believe she really enjoyed spending time with us.

I apologize for this message being so late.  Several things distracted me, and I never got a chance to let you all know about our September sew day.  We didn’t have a large group, but were lucky because Dawn stopped by with a huge stack of sleepsacks and hammies, etc., and Margaret brought in a big bag of Pennybutton Hammies.  No ferrets were in attendance, but several people stopped by looking for them, so hopefully next month we will have a fuzzy or two with us!
