Stanwood-Camano Hero Quilt Sew Day

So here we are half way through the day. Quilts with bindings on the table & everyone busy, busy. We started out with 25 quilts that needed binding. By the end of the day the bindings were all on (at least one side). Quilts got taken home to finish. Can't wait to see how many we have done by next Sew Day. Which is November 20th at Aunt Mary's. Maybe we'll see you there! Here I am with the finished quilts that got turned in. I think there are 12! I have 7 here at home. Almost time for another delivery! We also took on a special project for this Sew Day. Alanna Stone(sitting on the boxes in black) has a son, Michael, serving with the Army in Afghanistan. We decided to make care packages for them. As we spread the word the support poured out from our community. Discounted fabric from Over The Rainbow got made into pillowcases, several boxes of paperbacks, magazines, toothpaste & toothbrushes, top ramen, & AA batteries are just some of the things we packed into 18 flat rate boxes. Michael will share with his fellow soldiers. Michael if you get a chance to read this, know that we are all so grateful for your service to our country. We can't thank you enough! The other gals in the picture, left to right, are me,Cindy, Judeen & Linda. It was a very productive Sew Day. Thank you to everyone!

Not much else going on here. Waiting for the "big storm" they keep talking about. I see the sun peeking out now. Better get outside for awhile!

Check back later this week. I hear Little Mister may be doing a "guest blog".
17 days & counting!
