13 ladies attended today. Sue Kidder, the senior outreach person for New Scotland, came in today to pick up the lap quilts for seniors that we made. Daryl also contributed several knitted/crocheted items. So Sue left with her arms full and can take some of the warmth from our group into the homes of those less fortunate. Next week we will be having our holiday lunch at Maggie's Cafe on Western Ave. I called them today to make a reservation so it's all set up. Hopefully the ice will have melted by then so we can all make it safely. Agnes brought in some holiday (Christmas and Hannukah) table runners she has made for gifts and Betsey brought in her Christmas wall-hanging. Ethel was working on a beautiful beaded Christmas tree skirt. This is a busy time of the year. I've requested some time off work so I can finish my holiday sewing. No mischief making for us--we're far too busy!

12 ladies attended today. It's very cold and windy out today so kudos to those who braved the weather. I pulled out the last of the lap quilts and sewed the binding on. We now have 4 lap quilts for New Scotland seniors. Hurray for us! I hope Sue Kidder will come pick them up next week. Betsey H. cut out the pieces for a prayer quilt for her church. Ethel was working on a very nice Christmas quilt. Cathy M., Fran and Pat are looking forward to the 2008 Flying Geese Saturday morning quilt they will be making. Marguerite gave us an update on Hattie. She's okay but her husband is quite sick. Agnes reports that Winnie is doing well. They were on an outing last week and missed Nimblefingers but had a very good time. In 2 weeks, on the 18th, we will be going to lunch. 12:30 at Maggie's. After that there will be no Nimblefingers for 2 weeks because of the holidays.
