Quilt Ministry

Today I spend the morning at
Augsburgs Lutheran Church participating in the Quilt ministry.
Each Thursday during the school year, these lovely ladies come to the church and make quilts for newborns, lap quilts for people in wheelchairs, etc.
The above quilt is one they were getting ready to send out to an older lady by request of her daughter (I think, that's the relations.)
While there, low and behold who should appear to help with the quilt making to day,
but Bonnie from Quiltville, USA .
She mixed and matched, sewed and pressed and complete a quilt top today.
(I completed a top today, too.) Plus the group completed 2 other quilts that are now ready to be added to the finished stack.

After spending the morning at church, I headed out to find the perfect dress for my sons wedding in September. This is going to be harder then I had hoped.
I found something I liked, to only find out it is the same dress as the brides mother.
SO-O-O I'm back to square one.
The weekend, I hope, will be better. I will have to order the dress, so I am on a time schedule. It must be ordered by the end of April to be sure it will be in time for the wedding.
Wish me luck.

Sounds like it was a productive morning. With Bonnie, Mrs. Goodneedle and you there, it could be no less than productive, not to mention fun!

Good luck on the dress!

Best wishes on the dress search! I don't feel under as much pressure being the MOG as I did when I was the MOB, but I still need a dress! It's wonderful having you be a part of our ministry!
