My sister Polly came down from Delaware and joined me for a day of sewing. 

We rented table space for a fund raiser.  Some sewed....

while others scrap booked.

 A lot of paper piecing in this  project.

 Taking time out of a busy day to eat.

 What does this empty shelf mean?

Time to reorganize my stash.

 That looks much better.  Notice I didn't show you a before picture.  I still have my scrap draws to organize.

My three sisters, Mother and I went to the quilt museum and thrift shopping.

 This Farmers Delight is on display at the museum.  Donated by Fran Miller.

We took Sunday lunch to Mothers.  Coleen and Polly, so glad you got in on this special dinner.

Uh-oh, Polly locked her keys in the car.

 Mother checking out the situation.

 "We need help."

Enjoying the banks of North River.

 More folks enjoying the river.

 These two sure enjoy being with each other.
 Rebecca and Abe

 Singing and making melody.
 Melissa and Benjamin

 Enjoying the music.

 At the Shenandoah Valley Quilter Guild Paula Golden taught a class on color.

Two quilts I pieced for hospice.  Sewing Circle hand quilted them. Same fabrics different backgrounds and borders.

 Another quilt I pieced for Hospice.  I pieced Dancing Dots in Nancy Mahoney's class.

Enjoying raisin bread, coffee and fellowship with special people.

Autumn took advantage of having her bunion removed and took the Walmart cart on a drive.

A special treat at Dairy Queen after the bunion operation.

Mother made me a very special lunch.  She made fried tilapia, mixed vegetables, salsa, pudding, and cranberry's with homemade yogurt. 

Who is coming in the buggy?
Uncle Joe, Aunt Ruthie, Rebecca and Abe.
Rebecca surprised Abe with a buggy ride.  She prepared supper and the rest of us got to enjoy the meal at Uncle Joe and Aunt Ruthie's. 

 Must be some big fish in that pond. 
Fresh baked cinnamon rolls out of the oven.  So glad she likes to bake.
