15 ladies attended today. It was the day after Memorial Day so Lindo OC thought it was Monday and didn't remember it was Nimblefingers day until late. Cathy M. is out with pneumonia--she waited in the car for Deb who stopped in to tell me about Cathy (whom she was driving to the dr.'s) and to show off her suntan from Myrtle Beach. JoAnne called to tell me she wasn't going to make it in because she had a car wreck over the weekend and is now without wheels. Ethel only stayed for a little while because she had to get to work on her census job. So... Marguerite and I got out the raffle quilt to work on. We are determined to get it finished and out of here! We're tired of looking at it and want to start on the next one. Deb brought in some yarn from her aunt so several people took some of that. Tina had combined her smaller blocks into bigger blocks but needed some help figuring out how to make it fit a double bed. She and MaryAnn conferred for awhile and I heard the word yo-yo pop up. MaryAnn showed us her finished her liturgical quilt for the priest at the Catholic Church. There was lots of oohs and aahs over that. I brought in 2 bags I finished over my "staycation." Next week I will be teaching how to make a schlep bag so if you want to participate bring in 16-5 or more in. squares of 8 different fabrics. Tina will be going north after next week and she wanted to learn so I can always teach the class again later if you aren't prepared next week. Fran was working on a small wool piece that will be framed. Hattie is still at work on her sweater. Marie hurt her shoulder last week working on her braided rug. She worked too hard and too long and her shoulder didn't start hurting until that night when it woke her from her sleep. So today she was taking it easy, finishing off a UFO someone here brought in of a small rug hooked table mat. Winnie gave us the information about Agnes' husband who is doing well after his heart bypass. We were are relieved to hear that. We hope he continues to improve and we will keep him in our prayers. We again had some silly conversations: "what I don't understand about those Cialis commercials is why is that couple sitting in 2 outdoor bathtubs?" Rosemary asked this question and we all thought it was funny because we had all asked ourselves the same question! The library is having a mini-booksale and when I told the ladies about it they all got up and walked out--had to go see the books. We had to fill the table up again after their mass purchasess. Thank you ladies--every little bit helps.
