Today 25 people attended. Linda O'Connor brought in a quilt the Village Quilters had made and invited some of their members to help sew on the binding so some of our 25 were visiting Village Quilters. I pulled out our log cabin raffle quilt (not to be outdone by the V.Q.'s) so that Marguerite could again figure out the quilting pattern for it. Hopefully we can actually start quilting it now. Otherwise a pretty normal day. Jan Brennan brought in her finished crocheted baby blanket. She learned to crochet during Nimblefingers and she did a great job on the blanket! Margot brought in her sewing machine to give Edith Goldstein some personalized sewing instruction. Darryl brought in some blanket-stitched butterflies someone had given her. They hadn't finished all the butterflies though so Darryl got some instruction from Pat and Treva about how to do the blanket stitch. She will have a beautiful quilt when she gets it all together. It is made with some marvelous old fabrics. It's quite a treasure she has been given. Margot and I had both received thank you letters from Katherine Denegar for the quilt we delivered to her last week so we had them available for people to read. Margot also gave me a copy of Katherine's story about being a nurse during WWII in the Phillipines. I have just read it again and it is amazing. If you haven't had a chance to read it let me know. She is a remarkable woman with an exciting past.
