My Other Hobby

Maybe you know; maybe you don't. I do have other interests besides quilting and today I will tell you about a project that makes me pretty darned excited.


For most of 2014, I worked with a committee at the Greenfield Historical Society to write a book about our local high school, Edward Lee McClain HS, which is celebrating its centennial this September.

Each member of our committee offered unique contributions to the project--some were researchers, others were organizers, and others were photographers. My only function was to write. Whew. It was work, but of the very most enjoyable kind. The book went to the publisher the first of January; we had a couple of opportunities through the winter to check proofs. On Thursday, June 11, it was delivered. That was quite an exciting day, let me tell you! The finished product is amazing, and most folks around town who have picked up their book are complimenting it. I think it will be successful, thankfully.

If you want to tour our beautiful school, come join us at our big Centennial Celebration on Labor Day weekend. The book will be on sale, too. Click here to access the Greenfield Historical Society website.

Happy Quilting, Friends!
