The girls, Nancy, Mary and Barb started cutting fabric at 11:01 A.M. this morning and didn't get a break until 5:00 P.M.. In the meantime I was in the back most of the day getting dinner ready for our Super Bolt Sunday Sit & Sew. The entrance fee was 3 non-perishable food items and below is what we collected. It may not look like much but those bags are pretty full and they go back about 3 feet.
THANK YOU EVERYONE!
Not only did the Sit & Sew participants contribute to this "haul" but some of our customers brought in stuff too! Barb and I will be delivering it to our local Fire Hall tomorrow - thanks again!In honour of the Super Bowl today (by the way Pittsburgh won 27-23! In case you are interested!) we had our own Super Bowl Fare. Sloppy Joes with homemade Cole Slaw and Potato Salad. I was asked for the Potato Salad Recipe so get a pen and paper ready.
As usual, the girls got busy after dinner. Elaine is measuring a border, Marlene is getting ready to cut some fabric and Janet and Libby are in the background hanging her current project on the design wall with Gillian egging them on.
Everyone on this side of the room is very industrious. Elizabeth is pressing while Chris and Myrna are sewing away on 1/2 square triangles for an absolutely gorgeous quilt (hopefully once it's done they will bring it by so we can get a picture of it).
As tired as I am at the end of one of these evenings it is truly gratifying to know that a good time was had by all and thank you Gillian for doing KP duty tonight (when I asked what she was doing in MY kitchen - she told me to mind my own business and go away....so I went and had another piece of cake!).....
