My goal for this weekend is to straighten and cut holes in at least 10 blankets. Mom and Dee are anxious to make some more, and I told them I wasn't doing it during the summer, and they are ready now.
Martha, Susan, Amy, Mom, and I attended the Project Linus meeting this past Thursday. It was as creative and delicious as usual. The lunch was exceptionally good, and a good idea, and the dessert was one of the best I have EVER had in my life. I am claiming it right now as the dish I am going to bring to the Christmas dinner. I never get to bring dessert, so this time I would like to do that. It is posted on the website under the recipe tab. I'm not even a chocolate fan, and I think I could have eaten twice as much as I was served. It was very good.
If you have anything to bring for the nursing home project, please bring it to the meeting. We will give a bag of stuff to Tanya to take to the quilt store. Also, my cranberry crate "Little Free Library" showed up in the mail this week, HOA approved it, we have our sign, shingles are donated, so we are almost ready to go. If you have any books that you would like to donate, please bring to the meeting. It will probably be another two weeks before we are up and running. www.littlefreelibrary.org
I made a suggestion for the October book, but we are certainly open to other suggestions. I just threw that out there because I heard an interview about it on NPR and remembered reading it a long time ago. It was interesting that it still had such a strong following. They were also discussing the movie and wondering why the screenwriters changed the ending when it had such a good ending in the book. I couldn't remember how it ended, so I figured I would have to read it again:) Anyway, come with some good suggestions for October, November, and possibly January. I am assuming we are having our dinner in December. Let me know what you think about that. I think that is it. Hope to see you Thursday.
