catching up

Last weekend I worked at my guild's stall at the Arts in the Heart Festival in Augusta. We raise money by raffling off a quilt for Camp Rainbow (a camp for critically ill children) and try to raise awareness of the guild. This year we were also giving out bookmarks to remind folks about the quilt show next month. It was very hot and steamy...sort of like standing in a swamp...for most of the weekend. That and it being crowded with people is probably where I picked up this virus...So what is worse than having the flu? Having the flu with MS...even worse than having the flu and MS? Having the flu, MS and a husband coming down with the flu. (we all know that men suffer more from the flu than women right? grrrrr.....)I spent some time today sewing labels onto my quilts for the show and sorting some more vintage blocks. I love this bowtie block with the railroad fabric on it! The vintage blocks are all going into the silent auction. I've been sorting, washing, and pressing a bagful of blocks donated to the guild. Sound like work but really it has been a lot of fun!

Oh! Where did you find your railroad fabric?!? I work for the railroad, and have an old friend who is the definitive rail fan. I would love to make him a pillow or lap quilt using some of that with the various names! I don't see it online anywhere!

I am sorry you have been sick, that is the pits. Hope you are well soon, and your poor suffering husband, who is surely more sick than you. LOL!!

HOpe you are recovering from the flu, Siobhan, it doesn't sound like too much fun.

I hope that your siggie blocks are a great success at the silent auction.

The camp is such a good cause - you are a very kind person Sio to do so much to help others- it is valued and appreciated.

Warmest regards,
Anna

I am sorry you are sick and hope you are feeling better soon. I love that Bowtie quilt and the stripe quilt on the table is perfect for a scrap quilt.

Hello, Siobhan, just love to stop by and read your blog. Sorry for all the troubles with your binding and the flu! Get well soon! I just got the binding on my challenge quilt for the show so more handwork. Been sitting with my mother a lot since her stroke so handwork comes in very handy for idle hands. See you soon!
