Little elves have been ironing, cutting, sewing, and baking in preparation for the quilting bee tomorrow night.
Bigger elves are coming out in force tomorrow night to make some loving gifts for sick children. I am the luckiest woman to have such strong, caring, and Godly women in my life who always seem to have my back. I may not deserve to be surrounded by such true women but I will accept the blessing anyway!
This boy of mine has made about 10 14 dozen cookies for our quilters today. They are soo good that maybe a few dozen won't make it there at the rate they are being stolen when his back is turned.
Our quilts may not be works of art but they are very important works of heart. And that is the best kind of work we can do.
I also want to mention that if you can bring your sewing machine or quilt batting please do so. After price checking quilt batting I found The Quilter's Corner on Florence Street to be the most economical in Casa Grande - even beating Michael's prices.
It is OK (greatly appreciated) to bring supplies if you have some you wish to donate. While we are having this at Kokopelli Quilt Shop we are there as renters only and our Quilting Bee is not affiliated with the shop.
Meanwhile, on the farm Rodney has been changing 300 knives on the stock cutter and being the best husband ever for picking a bag of cotton burs for his quilting obsessed wife. It looks like a lot of farmers here are having good yields. Hip hip hooray!!
Now if that kid is not looking I am going to snatch a cookie and go work on some quilts. He may be young and quick but I am crafty.
