President’s Message

Hi Everyone and Happy Fall,
I hope you’ve been able to snuggle under a homemade quilt these last few nights.

Again, I want to thank everyone for a lovely show. Congratulations to all the winners. Mary Sexton won Best in Show for her STARZ I quilt, Joan Antonicelli won Viewers’ Choice with My Flower Baskets and Joanne Sorrentino’s My Blue Country won Judge’s Choice. And, our own charity queen, Ronnie Medina, won the raffle quilt.

We’ll be starting the new raffle quilt next month and, again, I’ll ask for participants who know how to paper piece to give a hand. I’ll do a demo at the December meeting for anyone who needs a refresher.

This month we welcome Joyce Fischer, so I’m sure we’ll get to see some great quilts.

Please continue to work on your UFO’s. I’m happy to say that I’ve made some headway and it feels good but, of course, I want to start several new projects too.

I found this appropriate quote:

It’s not too late.
You aren’t behind.
You’re exactly where you need to be.
Every step is necessary.
Don’t judge or berate yourself for how long your journey is taking. We all need our own time to travel our own distance.
Give yourself credit. And be thankful you made it thus far. -marcandangel

See you at the meeting,

Sue Acevedo
