Sew In

What a great turn out we had for the Charity Sew In on Sunday. We had about 18 people show up and what a fun time we had, lots of food and laughing. I didn't start taking pictures until the day was almost over so there are a few great ladies missing...We had some pressing from Gail...



and more pressing from Cathy...


Here's Barbara's baby...
This is Nancy's ...it's the big sister to the featherweight.


here's some strips and pizza...the pizza was thanks to Irma.

Here's Lynn working away, you can't see the chains attached to her ankle but I wouldn't let her off that machine all day...
I ran out of chains for Nancy and Janice so I put crazy glue to their chairs...

Here's the real sweat shop...no rest for the Joyce, Jeannie and Pat...

I forgot to get pictures of the cutters but Irma, Dee, Trish and Karen did a great job in keeping everyone supplied with strips and foundation squares.

It was so heartwarming to have such a great response to our sew-in. We managed to get three quilts pieced using the string blocks the ladies pieced. We also managed, thanks to Joyce, in getting one of the three quilt tops that Debbie dropped off quilted. I'll post pictures of all the quilts once they're done. We had several finished quilts dropped off by Astrid, so with her quilts and the ones that Debbie donated and what we get quilted we'll have a good start to building the pile for Barbara to have to take with her the next time the Red Cross calls her up.

Again...a big Thank you to everyone that came...
