A Whirlwind Of A Week

Here are Tuesday's photos of The Sunshine Club at the Senior Center. We were making our own sunshine in all the rain and wind this week that is quickly taking away all our pretty foliage. I was being presented with a pretty birthday card signed by all the regulars.

The addition onto the Senior Center is progressing nicely, with exterior windows all installed.

There was progress on the inside, too.

A gentleman was inside hammering up studding. Can the sheetrock be very far behind?

As for the Friday Quilter's in Concord, New Hampshire at The Golden Gese Quilt Shop, we were visited by a contingent of quilters led by Ann from Winchester, Massachusetts. They represented the local "Days For Girls" chapter. If you haven't yet heard of this very worthy charitable effort to sew feminine hygiene products for girls in third world countries, you may look in on it at the link here.
When Ann sends me photos, I will try to post them, but in the meantime, just let me say that they left with several yards of pretty new flannel scraps that I had gifted to them.
Maureen was working on some really cute snowperson blocks. And thank you Maureen, for winding a bobbin for my Featherweight when I couldn't recall how to do it, LOL!

This, below, is what I started with as I began working on a couple of pillowcases. If you'd like to view my version of pillowcases that link is here. They do make nice Christmas presents.

And a couple of hours later, they were done!

I am horrified that I didn't snap a photo of Bev and her progress today, but here is the beautiful quart jar of homemade applesauce that she gave out to everyone (and she brought Hersey's Chocolate Nuggets, too!!!).

The applesauce was made without any sugar, so my diabetic Husband Wonderful can enjoy it, too! Thank you so very much, Beverly!

Not least was coming home to pick up the mail and find this darling card from Deb in western Massachusetts. A Happy Halloween greeting card that she had hand crafted!! Thank you so very much!

Deb's blog, "Feathers In My Nest," is delightful and can be found here.

Yikes! Halloween is next Friday? I've just got time to buy some candy for the treaters!

Happy sewing!

Very pretty pillowcases.
You never lack for something to do--always going somewhere and having fun while you are at it! : )
