count down to christmas

Sunday, July 3, 2011


I have gotten some really nice comments by some blog readers and have no way to thank them or answer them.  So anyway thanks for stopping by and reading my blog.
I had a question about "what quilt group I was in?"  I am in a group that meets in my county and we meet at the local co-operative extension office.  We aren't a Guild. Just a simple group that gets together and sews all day once a month. Of course we have pot luck that day also. Lots of GREAT dished to try. We have some great cooks in our group.   We make "fire quilts" for those that get burned out of their homes and we make small lap size-to crib size and give them out during our christmas parade to those that attend that have little ones or are in wheel chairs.  The first year that I went to the christmas parade with the quilt group it was so cold we all like to have froze to death. Our toes and nose were froze. If only it would have snowed it would have been perfect. It was cold and it did seem like christmas.  Everyone loves the quilts that we hand out. Lots of work goes into making them.  We also have a quilt show at our local high school in july. It is called community days. There is always a big turnout. 
 Quilting is lots of fun, and ya get to meet lots of new people that normally one wouldn't meet. So, if you quilt and don't belong to a group or Guild, grab your fabric, needle and thread and go join one. I don't think you will be sorry at all.
Have a great 4th of July. And thanks to all the Soliders for serving our country.
