Last week’s guild meeting was a case in point. I could volunteer to work on the next

could be combined but would have to be finished by early June in time for the
Meanwhile, the projects I’m already working on:
Log cabin quilt – my favorite mindless machine stitching
project and one I’m really enjoying.

Thimble/tumbler quilt – my travel and “watching TV with
