Never have I been compared to lightning, but I do eventually get things moving -- and finished, on occasion!
Sewing with Sharon on Tuesday really helped. I did a lot of prep work on the 16-patch UFO that was supposed to have been my July project. Better late than never, as the saying goes.
Yesterday afternoon I went to Circleville for the Good Time Quilters Quilt Show. I have several pictures to share. Tomorrow.
Today marks the beginning of a 3-day celebration for the 100th birthday of our beloved McClain High School. I was deeply involved in writing the historical society book on MHS, and so even though I am a Hillsboro grad (rival school), I have come to love this beautiful, historic building.
I will be helping out at the historical society table and assisting with the dinner. One of my close friends is sort of "in charge" of this dinner, and she needs all the hands she can get.
The significance of the celebration, for those who don't know, is this: our high school was a gift from a native of our town - Greenfield - after he made a fortune in the manufacturing of horse collars. The school is the crown jewel of our town, and has been in continuous use as our high school since opening its doors in September of 1915. Not only did McClain donate the school, but he also filled it with art. There are friezes on the hallway walls, paintings, statues and drawings throughout. One teacher said it was like teaching in a museum or art gallery. My DH taught there for about 25 years; I taught summer school there for about 6 years, and all 3 of our children attended and graduated from MHS.
I hadn't planned on giving you all a history lesson this morning, but there it is, anyway. I suppose I tell you all of this to let you know that I might not be getting much sewing done with all of the celebrating going on. *wink*
Happy Quilting, Friends!
