Yesterday I finished another little quilt for Quilts Beyond Borders. It was pieced with simple squares so I did simple quilting.
Then, much of the afternoon and all evening was spent at the annual gala for the Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley. It’s their major fundraiser and I saw this much of the event:
Yep, just a quick peek in the ballroom before things got started. I coordinate the computer end of things—guest registration, entering bids and items sold, then check-out at the end. We stay really busy “behind the scenes” but it’s still a fun night and a worthy cause.
The best part for me, though, is the person I work with at the shelter on Wednesdays was going to be gone today so she gave me the day off too. Woo hoo—a free day to sew so I am spending it working on the Poinsettia quilt. As I predicted, once the top was sewn together, I found a sashing strip turned so I had to do a tiny bit of ripping. It’s fixed now and I found a border fabric that looks great. I’m really hoping to be able to reveal the top tomorrow!
