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!

Attendees:

It was a wonderful day, with a sweet dessert brought by Lisa – Strawberry Pie …. Yuummmmm

We had a great time this past Saturday showing what we learned from the Quilting Expo the week before.  I wish I had taken pictures of all the pretty things that Margaret and Karen made.  I only made one major thing which was the footstool, and I totally loved my course.
Just wanted to share our accomplishments this past Saturday.

Special thanks to Sandy for bringing baby blanket, and also for Lisa for bringing the baby blankets the Debbie contributed to the shelter this month.  It takes all of us to make the good things we do happen!!!
We got a lot of sets in the start mode for next month, so I think we will make lots of progress next month too.
Next month we will need to change our date again.  It will be April 1st, the first Saturday of the month.  Please make your calendars because we would love to have you there!!
