I hope you all enjoy the Christmas party this month. Thanks to Elaine and Linda, as well as, all the ladies on their committees!

Next month, a big thanks goes out to Michelle and Lucy for the Game night, as well as Tracy and Karen for the Bonnie Hunter Prep! Then February brings Bonnie Hunter for two days of happy moments!

I hope you all are blessed and happy! We have plenty more fun to coming in 2018 and 2019! 2018 brings Folded Easter Eggs (which come in handy for Christmas also), Barn quilts and applique. 2019 it is a possible lecture and fun with Pat Sloan! For all you Simply Splendid Sampler fans!

See our possible scheduled dates. We are working to accommodate and have something for everyone. A big thanks to everyone for all your contributions! If you have any ideas for lectures and workshops just let Lucy, Tracy and Karen know what interests you. If you would be willing to teach or lecture, see a member of the board.

Blessed Hanukkah! Joyeux Noel! Feliz Navidad! Happy Kwanzaa! Umoja!

However you say it…say it often! Enjoy your friends and family! Be blessed and full of joy!

As I contemplate this season, I am filled with both joy and sadness. Please remember all those around you and far away with a prayer for peace, love and joy for all! For some it is a lonely season. Brighten someone’s day and may yours be bright and your memories be brighter.

My Mom is struggling with Alzheimer’s (among many other ailments). As the days pass, her bright, happy spirit reminds me that “My attitude determines my altitude!” Even in her dark days, rays of joy can be found. Christmas, snowmen, hymns on her radio, and her ever present hand work keep her days busy. The childhood memories of her Mom and Grandma quilting come up in our talks. It is a comfort to me also. It reminds me that there is joy and peace to be found in the small things…all around…every day! May your season have the reason!


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
