I missed everyone last month. But, I heard that the meeting was a lot of fun, that Sr. Claire did an excellent job and that many pet beds and toys were made. Thank you to everyone who helps make the meeting each month a success. Many hands do make light work.
Over the last year we have had the opportunity to meet Caitlyn and Ariel from Girl Scout Troop 279. The girls are working on earning the Girl Scout Silver Award. Their project is to provide Fidget Quilts to people with Alzheimer's and dementia related illnesses. Bring your sewing machine to the May meeting and help the girls assemble and finish the fidget quilts.
As you all know, my Mom passed away last December. There is always a whole year of first time holidays and events without a loved one. May is a bittersweet month for me. We celebrate our mothers and my mother's birthday is this month. All of us deal with loss differently but, try to remember what Dr. Seuss said "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened".
I'm starting to think Red, White and Blue. Summer projects to work on: Quilts of Valor for the November presentation, quilts for the 4th of July presentation at Whispering Pines Park, quilts for Cowboy Days at the Fruit and Spice Park, wheel chair quilts from the ugly fabric for the VA Hospital and red, white and blue basket weave blocks for community quilts.
