    • Nana arrived at about 1:00 this afternoon. She has been working on sewing donated blocks together. I think she has 4 or 5 tops done already. We’re expecting Cher from Portland to arrive late tonight. She was going to leave there after work and it is at least a 5 hour drive.
      I have been working on quilting today. With a lot of interruptions, I finally finished two quilts.
      I think that tomorrow we will get a fresh start and quilt up a storm after Nana and Cher get some sleep to rest up from traveling. —-Ellen

      • I had wondered who Nana was when I have seen her name signed! Now that mystery is solved—your own mother. I know she has been an active Wrap ‘Em participant over the years and obviously she is still at it.

        Go, girls, go!

    • As I posted on the yahoo group-I arrived around 8:45 pm and managed to sew on one label before calling it a night-of course that doesn’t count playing with Ellen’s two grandchildren and visiting with her and her mom. I had to tour the place as it has changed completely since I was here years ago. You should see all the wonderful quilts stacked up that have been sent in! Such gorgeous work by so many talented quilters. I love each of them. I am looking forward to doing a lot of binding and quilting tomorrow!

      • Sounds like you are having a fun and productive time. How cool that the kids are helping there Nana quilt.

        As you know, Cher, I either didn’t know that the dates in June were set or nothing jogged the old memory bank and I made alternative plans for the day. Will try to sew something for Wrap ‘Em tomorrow but cheerlead today

    • I am trying again. This blog thing doesn’t seem to like me. Anyway I am quilting a top that I have made, and hope to have it done today for WTIL. And, yes, it does have birds in the fabric this time.

    • So far today, I have finished quilting one quilt which now needs the binding, pinned another biggish one, and have one more big one on the floor waiting to be pinned. Since I had surgery on my eyelid this past Wednesday, the doctor said I couldn’t mow the grass, so I’m sewing instead.

    • I probably won’t get as much done today as yesterday since I will be at church this morning and have a Hebrew lesson in the afternoon. However, I’m warming up my machine now and hope to accomplish a bit. How is everyone else doing?
