    That's my home town - next time you go, look at the hospital across the street and see if they've put up a historical marker for me yet.

    Here you go, Loretta. I copied my reply from Pictures to here.

    Show is in November.

    I checked, Loretta--and so far I have:
    Big quilt-1
    Lap quilts-4
    Baby quilts-3
    doll blankets-3 (one sold)
    large wall hangings-2
    table toppers-4
    table runners-13
    large hot pads-2
    8" potholders-15
    book marks-15

    I still need to finish many of these items--mostly they need the binding sewed on the back. My goal is to make more doll blankets (maybe 5?)and bookmarks. (maybe 20?) I also want to make some pillow cases to sell (maybe 10?). I decided against ornaments for now because they are quite time consuming. I can have a few more several hour long sewing sessions before school starts...but I have to start getting my room ready next week, plus I'll working with two horses as much as I can before school starts. AND there's that ragged flannel I need to finish. Quilts on the list to start are A Walk in the Park that Cathie made, and my husband's CW quilt... I'm not putting any kind of deadline expectations on those. I might get gray(er).

    Loretta--you can help me!!

    I needed to replace one large bookcase in my room--it's metal and falling apart. I found a 5 shelf one at Wal-Mart for $27. It's heavy and needs putting together. So--I asked my 21 year old son, who never says no :wink: , if he'd go with me to get two bookcases, get them to my 2nd floor room, and put them together. Of course he said yes. Then I'll take him to lunch. :wink:

    Kennedy, my barn buddy and former student, said she'd be glad to come in and help. I told her I'd give her all the jobs my daughter has done for me--jobs I don't like. She thought writing all the new students' names for hanging folder tags and organizing the supply cupboard and my top desk drawer sounded like fun. I'll have her arrange the desks and Cozy Corner mats too. Sounds like I'll owe her a lunch too. :D

    Wow! You have been busy! I'm almost finished a table runner set that my mom designed using Hoffman's Cardinal Winter Wonderland prints. Then I have to make six place mats to go with it. I should make eight in case someone only wants to buy four and then I have a better chance of selling the other four as a set.
