I’ve been delinquent again on my blogging and we’ve had a
bunch of show and tells so I need to get busy. Yesterday we had a good crowd.
Jo Anne, our Halloween fairy delivered some Halloween treats to us and to the
library staff. She is a super gift giver.Christa had an outstanding show and tell. A beautiful 2 sided red, black
and gray quilt. She is a fantastic quilter. Her work is always technically and
artistically amazing. I realize now that I didn’t take a picture of Betty with
her finished neck piece. She was very pleased with it and plans to make more.
She is getting ready to head South again where she won’t need heavy coats,
boots, etc. This little scarf will be just enough. Elaine is ready for the last
step of her Christmas placemats. She just needs to sew the opening closed and
sew around the edge. They should be ready to use this year. Winnie is disturbed
because this is the first year ever she thinks she won’t bother voting. She
takes this responsibility very seriously but doesn’t like either choice. I have
the feeling she’s not the only one in the country with this dilemma.
