President’s Message Michele Barnard “At this season of the year, darkness is a more insistent thing than cold. The days are short as any
― E.B. White
Our house recently is in even more chaos than usual, but for a good reason. Just before Thanksgiving, we adopted two kittens from the Montgomery County shelter. Starburst and Snickers are…busy. It had been a long time since we had a kitten in the house, and I’d forgotten just how inquisitive they are! So I’m currently on a mission to put away all of the pincushions- because pins were a discovery.
And it is dark these days – time to start putting in time with the light box in the morning. Those light exposure minutes are a good time to do some mindless sewing and inventorying of UFOs. It was NOT a great year of finishing here in the Barnard household, but I hope (as always!) to make a bigger dent next year.
In this holiday season, please enjoy whatever holiday(s) you celebrate. I treasure this guild, and am thankful for it each and every year. Our celebrations this year are a little different (again), but I’m happy that we’re all here to celebrate.
Yours in Quilting,
