It was quite emotional tonight - there was a lot of fabric and notions, as well as quite a few gift certificates. Our President read your letter and gave Anna a big hug. If you want to email me off line, I'll send you some photos tomorrow - my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and it's too bad we didn't get to meet while you were in Halifax - maybe next time you be in town when we have a Mayflower meeting.
Our website is: http://mayflowerquilters.tripod.com and I maintain it as well as doing the Membership and sending all our info out via emails.
If you are the quilter who sent 4 half metre pieces of fabric to help rebuild Anna's stash, thank you for your wonderful contribution - the fabric is beautiful. We are doing the presentation tonight at our Annual Dinner. I'm sure she'll be a bit overwhelmed when she sees how much we've collected for her and as far as I know, she isn't aware of what we've been doing. Again, thank you - Lorna
"in the woods" quilting was done by a (now) new friend.....a LA in our area. The quilt was based on the Yellow Brick Road by Atkinson and I did it in flannels for my great nephew.....the quilting is like a seek and find - there are so many things to see. Thank you for the comments on my pictures.
Thank you, Linda. I didn't realize when I posted photos that "my" title I had on the picture would show! ha! "jbj" the initials for my brother and sil! It was a line of flannels I found last year. Just loved the birds and the flannel seemed so rich. It was my first attempt at coming up with my own layout for a panel. It's lonnnng but brother is 6'6' so it's a good length for him and sil likes to "tuck" her feet.
I'm new to EPP and would like to learn more about this wonderful way to quilt...so I'm eager to learn all I can! You work on projects together? that's cool!
Thanks for your friendly and welcoming email!
Thanks Linda; I'm looking forward to getting acquainted with both groups. now that the worst of the flower bed planting season is over here. It won't be long until I can get back to working with fabric and thread. I also look forward to seeing what you have been working on. I especially like the bunny in your photo 10.
Hi, Linda--i started reading to my children at about 5 months, first board books and later each had one inexpensive regular book to "learn" on--how to turn pages, for example. I still have those two books with chewed corners and some tattered pages and they hold dear memories. My kids are 21 and almost 18 and still read voraciously. You are giving such a good gift to your little great nephew.
I love your book--it touched my heart. What a lovely present--i wish i had had one like it when my children were small and learning to sit in church. I'm so excited about all the possibilties with EPP. I had really only thought about Grandma's Flower garden, perhaps because of sleeping under one made my GM and now in tatters. But it's like eating peanuts and i have a dorm quilt to finish, a feathered star to quilt, a summer quilt to get back to. . . but wait, just one more flower! Thank you for the welcome to the EPP group!
