A Bee In The Barn



Many hands make light work. Nane graciously opened her barn-loft studio space to our Bee for a sew day on Saturday. We came bearing bushels of scraps and strips to construct lap quilts for the patients in the Neuroscience Unit at one of our local hospitals. We left with enough finished string blocks for four complete quilt tops and the beginnings of a few more. There were seven quilters gathered, plus Zorro the kitty. It was a wonderful day; we accomplished much and greatly missed those who couldn't join us.

Life is Good!

Sew days with friends are the best! It looks like you were very productive.

It's always inspiring to see the generosity of time, materials and heart, that quilters generate they get together.

It sounds like you all had a great time while doing good deeds too!
