Nebraska the Good Life....

If things continue to go well for me, starting the first Tuesday in January of 2012, I will be presenting a book club in relationship to the North Platte Canteen.  The book, Once Upon a Town: The Miracle of the North Platte Canteen by Bob Greene will the selection.  Because of the great service the women of North Platte, Nebraska displayed to people whom they had never met before, and whom they most likely would not see again, our book club is going to do something special this time.

Because I feel its important to give back to your community in any way you can, we will be making quilts that are inspired from the World War II era.  Those quilts will be then finished and donated in the area to local shelters for immediate need in the area. 

If you are interested in learning more about the North Platte Canteen or would like more information about the upcoming book club and community service project, please a comment and I will respond when I can.  I have a new e-mail address so those of you with my old address, please leave a comment as well and I will get in touch with you with my new e-mail address.

Why hello!

Yes it has been a long time since a post.  I am feeling much better and things seem to be going ok for the moment.  I have felt like quilting again and I have been working on some very simple quilts.

Pictured below is the hand quilted quilt that we finished.  I taught this class once a week as I could.  It feels great to have it done, and it looks pretty good too. 

Not a whole lot is going on right now.  Its pretty quiet around here these days.
