I have a few pictures to post. I don't know where the time goes. My summer was busy. I don't know if I have mentioned that I am chairing my guild's quilt show which is October 28 and 29. It has not been a terribly difficult job as I have a wonderful committee that is working very hard and doing their jobs very well. I still have to keep up with all that is going on, answer questions and make some decisions.
Here are a couple of pictures of our guild's raffle quilt:

It was made by one of the bees in the guild. Didn't they do a marvelous job? It is all batiks and the center is hand appliqued. In case you want a chance to own this quilt, let me know. Tickets are $1 each or 6/$5. The drawing will be at our guild meeting in November so you have plenty of time to get tickets.
I continue to keep busy knitting and stitching as well as quilting. Here are a couple of pictures of recently finished projects:

I am also mentoring Lois' great niece for her Senior Project. She chose quilting so we have been working together for a few months now on her quilt. She had never quilted before she started so it has been quite a learning experience for her. She now has her top assembled and today we sandwiched it and she marked it for quilting. She is using fabric from Lois' stash which I think would please Lois greatly. I'll post pictures when she finishes.
In addition, I am now working part time for Terri Degenkolb, the owner of Whimsicals (www.whimsicalquilts.com). She lives in Noblesville (about 45 minutes from my house) and works out of her home. She is a great designer - she produces two fabric lines and at least two books each year. I am helping with lots of things - taking orders, packing and shipping orders, web site, cutting fabric, invoicing, etc. We have a good time together and I really enjoy it.
Well, the game is getting exciting and I usually don't get very excited about football games so I'll go for now.
