18 ladies attended yesterday. Aly and Jackson continued sewing the binding on a camp quilt. Jackson took it home and finished it herself. She brought it in today and it looks great! Congratulations Jackson (age 9)! Several others of us pinned and tied another quilt top that I had made. We then finished tying the quilt we had pinned 2 weeks ago. I have taken both of them home to sew on bindings. Joyce L., the children's librarian, made a quilt top too. We'll pin it next week. With the addition of several quilts from the Village Quilters I think we're about up to 23 finished quilts for the camp. We will be turning them in on Sept. 9th so if you're thinking about making more there's still time! Louise brought in a wall hanging her sister-in-law had made her to celebrate her (Louise's) wedding anniversary. The hanging had wedding pictures incorporated in it. Louise says she's a beginning quilter but she did a great job! Rosemary tells us she's moving to Voorheesville from Altamont soon. And this week Hattie was back. We haven't seen her for awhile. Unfortunately, I'm over working on the quilts so I don't get to hear everyone's news.

16 ladies attended today. Unfortunately I couldn't be there so I don't know what happened although looking at the sign-in sheet I'm sorry I wasn't there. Betsey Hoffman made a return appearance. I hope she's in town for more than a week so that I can see her next week. Sorry I missed you ladies.

Yesterday we had 15 attendees including a grandson and 1 jr. nimblefinger. I brought in 2 tops with backs ready to be sandwiched and tied. We pieced some batting and almost finished tying one of them. We'll finish it up next week and I'll take it home and try to find a binding for it. The other one we'll have to piece the batting next week and start on. The quilt Jackson and I started before, Jackson and Aly sewed on the binding so it will need some hand-sewing next week. I also brought in 2 new knitting books which Marie very happily checked out. Rosemary tried out our sewing machine to work on her apron. It is really looking nice. Cathy M. brought in one finished quilt and another ready to be tied. She and Agnes made quick work of it. We now have about 18 quilts ready for the camp Erin kids. And, best of all, Agnes brought in a yummy blueberry cake! We made quick work of that too!
