17 ladies today. We're almost back to our full quorum. People are starting to return from their summer travels. Marie surprised us today by bringing in her daughter who is visiting from California. We were happy to meet her. Agnes had worked on the prayer quilt top at home and finished it so today a bunch of ladies laid it out and began tying it. It turned out particularly nice I think. Marguerite and I took out the big raffle quilt and hand quilted. The center is coming along but it will be awhile before it is finished. Sue M. also stopped by; her last time before school starts. She had come in a few weeks ago to learn how to make a binding so today she wanted to show us the almost finished project. She has made a very nice quilt for a friend's wedding present. She had it quilted by our friend Lew. It was beautiful. Connie also brought in some show and share: she finished knitting her small afghan which has been designated as a baby blanket because of its size. It was in beautiful blues and browns. Today Connie and Edith were our knitters. Everyone else was using a smaller needle.

News from up north. I miss all of you and will be back sometime in Oct. We've had a great summer. I made a couple of quilts and crow hooking. I have also been weaving on the big loom at the museum. So far I've made 2 rugs. I'll try and bring at least one when I get back.I've been reading your news every week on the computer
