Our Quilt Club’s outgoing board members gathered for a last meeting and luncheon this week. I confess I am ready to hand over the responsibilities to my successor, though it has been a very good experience to serve as an officer the last two years.
It has been a special joy to serve with our outgoing president. She took the job on very short notice when our president-elect was unexpectedly forced to relocate. She served with humor, grace and courage, all the qualities you would hope to have in a presiding officer.
Each of the outgoing board members was given a small quilt. No two were alike. This is the one I received. She made it using the pattern from the Karen Stone workshop we had earlier this year. I will treasure it.
