Believe it or not, my husband was the one who pointed out and reminded me of it this year! Our schedule for the 18th was very busy and I figured that the day was lost, but because of recent weather and health, it seems I will be able to participate anyhow! Most of the day, if not all, has been cleared for me to stay home. I didn't have to finagle it at all! I figure it is a little gift from God.
Happy quilting to all!
