15 ladies attended today. Fran told us a tale of woe suffered by her husband in a freak accident with his truck. As unhappy as he is being stuck at home recovering, it could have been a lot worse. Thank heavens for small miracles. Judith Wing, a retired catalog librarian from SUNY, attended for the first time today. She had attended one of our quilt shows and wanted to check us out. I hope she liked what she saw and will come back again. Tony Kormos who attended for the first time 2 weeks ago returned today with a very big cross-stitch project--a tablecloth. She's got a lot of work ahead of her! Ethel and I had a very lively and animated talk about our favorite TV show Project Runway. It's kind of hard to sell the show to people who don't have cable but boy, you get two fans together and they just can't shut up! Marguerite brought her granddaughter Alexandra today since school is out for the Jewish holidays. Winnie was making a Christmas wreath, Fran some holiday placemats, Cathy C. a tree skirt--lots of people getting ready for the holidays. Best of all though, last night I got a call from Betsey Hoffman who is returning to Voorheesville to take care of business and will be stopping by Nimblefingers. It will be nice to see her again and to see her for a pleasant occasion. She's going through a lot right now and I know we all want to be there for her. Also, last night Betty Smith informed me that she wants to return to Nimblefingers if someone will drive her. Any volunteers out there? Don't worry Betty, we'll arrange something. We want to see you again too.
