I have the...

best friends in the whole world. Not only do they put up with all my insecurities and goofiness, but they also support my need to help others. Whenever I get the urge to do something nice for someone else, they are always right there supporting me. May 22nd three of my friends came over for a "Sewing for Charity" day at my house. We started four Quilts for Kids and one Patriotic Quilt of Valor.

My friend Mary zipped right through one 4-Patch and Square Quilt for Kids and got it all ready for the quilter. Then she started on a second one.

Lynne started a Disappearing 9-Patch, got the blocks all made, and took the rest home to finish.

Linda came later and started a 4-Patch and Square Quilt for Kids and took hers home to finish also.

And Katie helped me sew the blocks for a twin-size Patriotic Log Cabin quilt. Isn't she so cute? Patsy Cline helped too, but she doesn't stay still for long. She's hiding in some of the pictures.

Aren't they the best?? I am so lucky to have such wonderful, compassionate gals as my friends. Even if they are a little camera shy. Does Mary really think she can hide behind that sewing machine??

Until next time...
Happy quilting from Sharon, Katie, and Patsy Cline

Looks like such fun ... wish I could sit and sew with you gals. I'm like Patsy Cline and Mary, though, I would be hiding from the camera ... ;) Pat
