End of Year Update from Quilts on Plum Lane

By Florida's Original NatureCoasterâ„¢ Posted on December 17, 2017

Dear Quilters,

This year has gone by so quickly, my head is spinning!  Summer came and went, and then we had a visit from Hurricane Irma.  I am always impressed the way people come together in times of trouble.  One gentleman who was here with one of the electrical companies from the Midwest, came in to buy a quilt for his wife.   He was then heading south of us to help in the Keys.  It was so wonderful to see people helping others.  I came home from my back surgery to find all the limbs, etc. had been cleared from my yard.  Thank you to all of those who reached out to others during that time.  Sometimes I fear we have forgotten that we are a community; Irma eased my thoughts.

Welcome back to our snowbirds.  Come visit us and show us what you have been working on.  We have a lot of new projects starting at the beginning of the year:  wool, fusible applique and pieced projects.  We are starting a Whatnot Club, making small quilts and miniatures from Kim Diehl.   We have added an Intermediate Level and a new Beginner level of Brazilian embroidery.  Tuffets are back along with a new “fun and done” project.  Come join us on Saturday January 6th for our class preview.  You will meet the teachers and see the projects we will be offering.

Before I had surgery this August, I planned all sorts of projects to work on while I was recuperating.  Carol looked dubiously at my ideas, and she was right to do so.  Not only  couldn’t I bend over, I couldn’t even tilt my head to hand sew!  So, now I am working feverishly to finish all the projects I had imagined to already have done.  I will not add new projects until I am close to finishing the others!!  (oh those projects are for another time).

I hope you are all continuing to enjoy the quilting journey.

Keep on stitching,
