This Week (45) I…

…voted on Tuesday.

…edited “A Quilter’s Touch” TV show on Brian’s Quilts.  It is now available to view online via http://www.hcattv.org

Just click on “Programming”, “Public”, “A Quilter’s Touch”

Joyce Gilmore explains how she turned comforting a friend into a charity effort which continues today, 12 years later to comfort many.  I feel honored to be part of this effort.  Quilters are very generous people.  Sharing their time and talent seems natural to quilters.  If you would like to make a few charity quilts for this effort, please do.  You can send them to me to deliver to Joyce Gilmore of Mendon.

On Thursday I went to “The Gathering quilt show” in Manchester, New Hampshire.  I was inspired to start some new quilts.  It was fun to see quilts hanging from friends I know, and to see such beautiful quilting.  I bought another Oriental panel to quilt.  I also bought some more silk thread, d-rings and clasps for dog leashes, and unique fabric for ideas churning in my brain.  Attending quilt shows had a way of unlocking a creative spirit.  Now to tame the huge number of ideas flooding my thoughts!

On Friday I enjoyed seeing the Holliston Senior Center Quilters.  We went on a field trip a week ago, and it was exciting to see what was created as a result.  Here are a few photos of the “Show and Tell” we shared.

Another fabulous week connecting with talented quilters!
