I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving with family and friends. As I’m writing this, I am at
the end of my 2 weeks in Florida where I typically spend the holiday with my aunts, cousins and all
their kids. It is warmer here and we have a wonderful potluck at a local park so no one is stuck
doing all the cooking and cleaning. Looking back at the last two months of articles I wrote, it appears
I am almost always traveling, which I do enjoy. Florida is where my parents’ house is and where all
my family lives (outside of my husband and my kids). On a personal note, my little brother had a
stroke a few months ago and is struggling to recover so I feel the need to visit him more than usual
and offer advice which is not always appreciated (oh well). I’m off to see him tomorrow with some
tools to help get his hand moving again, I hope he will do the exercises and will show some progress
before I get down to see him again.
Back to quilting, I enjoyed attending a Service Projects meeting this month and got to see my
completed project displayed to the group. It was great to get that finally completed and passed on so
that soon someone else can enjoy the dinosaur quilt. If you are looking for some in-person contact
with other quilters over the next few months, take the time to attend one of these meetings and help
the guild complete some quilts while you socialize with other members of the guild.
Read the rest of this newsletter to get more information on Service Projects, raffle quilt ticket sales &
marketing, the 2025 raffle quilt prep and many other ways to participate in guild activities.
We will be having an executive board meeting on December 11th at 7pm. If you are interested in
attending, please let me or another officer know and we will send you the Zoom link. We always
appreciate your ideas and suggestions to improve the guild.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season in December in whatever way you celebrate. I’m
sure we are all hoping for more peace in the world.
See you at the meeting,
