I want to give a shout out to all the quilters who continue to "leave the change" at the shop ... it always goes into the envelope to support the school students whose lunch accounts are in arrears. This month there was over fifty dollars, which was appreciated by the superintendent when I walked it over to her office.
The other good news is that the community has assisted again in raising money for the Rick Palardy Scholarship account for graduating seniors who are pursuing a career in the trades to help maintain our community ... this year I was able to add a fifth $500 scholarship to the existing four ... so now two seniors at Georgetown High, two seniors at Whittier Tech, and one at Essex North Shore Tech will be recognized for their community dedication and hard work ethic. Thank you, all, who have supported this effort.
I received one new bolt this week ... it was a delayed delivery from an order placed last year. It's a rich black fabric with gold, gray and white stars and planets by Michael Miller ... someone just called me last week and asked if I had any Michael Miller prints ... sorry it hadn't arrived yet. But it's here now!
|This bolt's selvage reads "Michael Miller ... Galactic ... Making It Fun"|
If you want to see what I've been up to recently, check the 2020 journal page (see the right margin list). Lots of spontaneous quilts this past week.
Enjoy the coming good weather (ignore tonight's snow ... it will melt rapidly. Don't forget to set your clocks ahead Saturday night ... and remember to wash your hands and sing Happy Birthday while you do!
