Yesterday we had 17 ladies. Pat H. brought in 2 quilts she had made and was donating to alzheimer's patients. They were activity quilts, made from different textured fabrics, with zippers, velcro and rings to play with. These quilts keep the patient's hands busy so are very good to have around. It's a great idea and a great service. Pat is a good citizen by any standards. Jo-Ann brought in her Friday freebie project from the Quilt Bug: a bag made with some stuff that makes your fabric shrivel up. I don't remember the name of the stuff but it made a really cool bag! Mary Ann M. visited us. She's making another memory quilt. She hopes to sell it at Tesellations--a new arts/crafts store in Altamont. I've heard of the store but never visited. It sounds like a great place though! Agnes was crocheting scrubbies and selling them as fast as she made them! Pat OR was making a table runner appliqued with dragonflies. It was very pretty. Ethel was binding a Christmas tree skirt for her daughter. Cathy Y. and Marie were our knitters: Cathy a sweater and Marie an afghan. I showed off the new Voorheesville library cookbook. It will go on sale this Saturday and I know it will be a hot seller!
