Many Memories!

Have drawn most of the  businesses' and churches in the town.

My  two latest ACEO 2.5"X3.5" Original Artist Cards for sale on E-Bay Auction. It's a fun new project! the first 5 have sold so far.

 During the week I cut out  54  6.5" squares using 6 different prints which makes 9 rolls of 6 squares per roll. Then my good friend Rose Marie and I sew them together at Chat & Sew at the Archie Baptist Church every Wenesday. Then Rose Marie takes them home and hand ties or machine quilts them during the week    making a youth size quilt or throw for the residents at the Baptist Childrens Home. They have many short term  residents. Each one gets a quilt, a new set of clothes and a book or game in a fabric bag when they enter, and it's theirs to take with them with they leave.

People donate yardage, batting and left over fabric to which we supplement with decorative fat quarters and more batting to create bright happy quilts. We have a goal of one a week!

One of our TOPS sisters Sandy & husband  Donnie(center) celebrated their 50th Wedding anniversary Sat. and we were there to celebrate with them! Three of our members were not there at the time of this picture.

What a great way to come together and make those quilts! Such a gift.
And I'm thrilled to hear that your art cards all sold! Of course it's no surprise to me!
Thanks for sharing Marlynne,
