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!
