This will be between seeing the exhibit and shopping in the museum store. It should be a blast!

My previous post included pics - please don't look at the house - just realized that the bathroom was in some of the pics - this is our basement ... and the board behind the machine is the top - once the machine goes down into the cabinet, the entire top is covered by that one piece - it is in the worst condition - not sure how to fix - will be learning
I bought this at a yard sale this week - $40 - I fell in love with the machine and cabinet and just had to have it ... it runs, a little noisy, but a beautiful stitch.

I am working with the women's and children (foster children)crisis center here in town, North Carolina for Christmas this year. It's for The Hannah House and The Union Mission. We are collecting Lap quilts and pillow cases ,scarves,mittens and hats. The pillow cases they wrap Christmas Gifts in them for the children instead of paper. It is so wonderful. We also try to collect toys to put in the pillow cases. I will also take UFO"s lap quilts to finish if anyone has any that want to give.
Had to work today, but I still managed to trace and trim every piece either on fusible web or freezer paper! I think there are hundreds of pieces. The garden quilt is ready for the next step......Picking fabrics for the big fusing. Getting late and working tomorrow so signing off for now.
