This morning….celebrating! One thousand pieces put together in ten days to complete a puzzle! I almost finished it, but I had two pieces left and couldn’t find the spaces. Could the puzzle maker be so cruel? No! Bob walked in and saw the spaces immediately….it all depended on the light shining just right. So we took out three pieces and let Matty finish it, too….his reaction…”Hooray!” Hooray for all of us!
For all the visitors to a Hometown Girl, I have made a Shutterfly book with ALL of the group photos and some individual ones. It’s really fun to look at the photos, so I thought I would show you the cover and my favorite page. The cover is a group of friends I have known for many years….my Grad School! They came to their tour wearing the pink T shirts from my Quilters Hall of Fame adventure! And my favorite page just happened as I was looking through pictures. Enjoy!
Some more procrastination…..actually, if this quilter is going to sew, I need some space. So, inspired by my granddaughter who cleaned her desk, I cleaned up the cutting table and sewing table!
Oh, my goodness! Last night near midnight I realized I didn’t send this! I missed a day! I was so thrilled that I kept up with the blog throughout the virtual tour! So here’s one of my favorite positive messages during this Quilter in Quarantine time….
I will write about my latest quilting project tomorrow…..that’s what Quilters in Quarantine do….procrastinate! But I just realized I have three photos that show great progress on another project….a 1000 piece puzzle of Nancy Drew covers! Actually, I hate puzzles, but I wanted something to take me away from my phone…so here we are! Photo #1 five days ago, coffee and 1000 tiny pieces. Photo #2 two days ago, the outside done and 900+ tiny pieces. Photo #3 yesterday, the titles and now 700+ pieces that all look alike. Now it’s time for some quilting!
March 25 is Maryland Day! In school we always talked about the founding of our state on this day. It’s been an extra important day for me for the last two years. Hometown Girl opened last year on Maryland Day weekend. I remember the day they told me….I don’t think I heard anything else that day because I know it’s important to our Maryland Historical Society! And the exhibit was scheduled to end on this day. So here we are! There are no words for how much this has meant for me and my quilting friends. Oh…except for all the blog words I’ve written! It’s been fun to write and I hope you enjoyed it! ❤️🖤💛
There have been SO many thank you messages this past year! I have been so thankful to everyone who visited Hometown Girl! And so many of you have expressed gratitude after seeing the quilts and taking a tour. There’s been delightful comments from quilters, but I thought I would share some comments that are not from quilters. It touched me that they see the importance of quilters as a community. I cannot tell you how much these comments mean to me. So…..I thought I would remind you to take a moment and connect with others….your words can make a world of difference to them! Call your mom! Send a written note to your grandkids! Thank the people who are taking care of us in these trying times! Add an extra tip to carry out people! Connect with your quilting friends, share photos of your projects! And stay safe! ❤️
