Yesterday we had 15 ladies in attendance. One was a visitor. We also had a group from Schenectady come in to see our show. They meet every Tuesday afternoon too and they thought we should get together for a joint meeting sometime. I gave one of them my email address so maybe we'll try that. Jo-Anne pulled out her turquoise scarf to work on. One of these days I think she might actually finish it! She and Diane went to a quilt show in Cooperstown last week and also visited a quilt shop. She brought in her purchases to show us and had a picture she took at the show of Diane standing in front of a Baltimore album quilt with yo-yo's in every block. It must have been a spectacular quilt. Marguerite came in late. Everyone was happy to see her. We have been worried about her since her diagnosis of breast cancer. But she is doing fine now and feels much better. Agnes told us Winnie is in the hospital, St. Peter's, with diabetic neuropathy. They are looking for a rehab place to put her now. Hopefully she'll be back with us soon. I brought in a finished end-of-bed quilt for Albany med to give to Marguerite. I am sewing the binding on another one that should be ready next week.
