    National Quilting Day

    Tomorrow is national Quilting day! Does anyone have anything fun planned?

    I know my guild is having a quilters olympics day again this year and we have prizes and everything that we can win. We even have 2 sewing machines that we can possibly win.

    I will be too busy tomorrow to sew, but will have all Sunday after church to catch up on my sewing - story of my life, always a day late and a dollar short.

    Seems like I keep getting pulled away from my quilting lately, so I told everyone that Saturday was OFF LIMITS. I WILL BE QUILTING TOMORROW COME HELL OR HIGH WATER!!!
    Life has given me so much more than scraps, but I make quilts anyway!

    I belong to a quilt group and there will be about 25 of us, gathering in a small church hall.
    One of the ladies on the committee is going to make Lasagna and salad, and we have
    been asked to make a cake/ cookies - for "afternoon tea".

    We are being supplied with red/white/blue fabric to make a block and then they will be
    put into two piles and two people will then each win a pile of blocks and they will be able to
    make a quilt out of them. Such a nice idea.

    So that will be in the morning and after our scrummy lunch we can do our "own" thing. I
    have several Dear Jane blocks prepped to "hand sew" - that is if I have time after going
    round to see what everyone else is doing !!
    There will be a trader there and we will also have a raffle.

    So, whatever you may be doing - I look on this list as my "international group" and wanted to
    wish you all a happy sewing day.

    I went to a fabric shop today about an hour away. I had never been there before - it's in El Campo, TX. Pretty shop and they have 20% off yardage and fat quarters are on sale too, today and tomorrow (16th and 17th). I also stopped at a local shop in Richmond TX and they have 20% off purchase through tomorrow. Got a few wonderful fabrics!

    My Guild had a Quilt til You Wilt weekend yesterday and today to work on Care Quilts for donation. Bins of donated fabrics were sorted through, kits made, and much was accomplished. I had a good time- 2 tops almost finished- need borders.

    Quilt a Clauss did not come by our house today! Darn it! Didn't think he would. Anyhow, I did get some strip blocks made this morning, then we attended a wedding reception, our gift, a beautiful apple green, pink & brown turning twenty quilt! The bride asked me if I brought her anything she would love. Think she saw the apple green bag in with the gifts and she knows I am into quilting. I think she is looking forward to it!

    I will get some more quilting in yet tonite
