Busy Weekend...Quilts, Deer and Preemies

What a full weekend, we started off Friday night with the opening reception of our Bee's quilt will hang in the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center through the end of the year.

Saturday morning we were on our way out the door to head to Winston to do some errands and GP's brother called. I heard GP say I will have her get her camera. He had just used his black powder rifle to get the pretty 11 pt buck. My Dad hunted when we lived in Wyoming so I had seen (and eaten) game before...but never had it been shot right in my own backyard. I am sure he will have this one mounted.

We did some work at my house then hit Chelseas to wish Salem Stitcher well during her quilt show and sale. After that stop we delivered about 15 preemie quilts to the Neonatal unit at Baptist. Here is sis with one she picked out for the little girl under the special lights to treat jaundice. We met several parents and they are always so suprised that someone would give them a handmade quilt for their strings attached. Our guild is full of very generous ladies who keep this project going strong.

Dinner and a show tonight with friends, then it will be the begining of another work week. Monday Mandolin, Tuesday $5 Quilt, Thursday Ski Club....good thing GP likes a little alone time every now and then! I have him set for the week with some homeade pumpkin bread, laundry all done, and putting on a pot of pintos for Monday night's supper. I love this time of year.

I love this time of year, too... or maybe I really do enjoy all the busy-ness that comes as the holidays approach.

Thanks again, so very much, for being so instrumental in making the quilt show at the YCAC become a beautiful reality!
