Well, this certainly isn’t what any of us expected of 2020! We are missing meetings, workshops, and bees while staying at home and sewing more than normal because of a virus that has swept across the world. We don’t know what the next few weeks or months will bring, but we do know a few things:
- We are a group of loving and helpful women who continue to find ways to share our quilting craft with the world. We are still making baby quilts, wedding quilts, birthday quilts, graduation quilts, cancer quilts, and every other kind of quilt. We are still sewing pillow cases for family and friends and for charities. We are still doing mystery quilts, sew-a-longs and Blocks of the Month (love those bunnies!).
- We are staying connected with Facebook, texts, phone calls, e-mails, and cards. Some of us are getting creative and giving hilarious tours of their sewing areas (thank you, Ann Riccardelli).
- We are finding new ways to help others by sewing masks for EMT’s, hospice workers, and hospitals.
- We are offering each other encouragement and doing our best to deal with this new normal. And when all of this is over and we are back together again, we will have a greater appreciation for the time that we spend together and the opportunities we have to sew and learn together.
Thank you to all who participated in the Quilter’s Day Out last month. The shops were great, and the lunch at Arni’s was a lot of fun. The ladies at my table laughed ourselves silly
