Wow... I did not realize it has been this long. It has been busy time. Getting ready now especially for the Shiner Heritage Quilt Guild March Quilt Show on March 15th and 16th. I am chairman of the show and it has kept me very busy. We have 65 large quilts and 26 small quilts to show this year. The theme this year is All Things Spring. It is not a judged show, but we do have a Mayors Choice award, and peoples choice in every catagory. We have the beautiful raffle quilt to give away on Saturday along with other great items such as baby quilts and a custom made quilt stand made in oak by the husband of one of our members. We are very excited and hope if you are close enough you can come take a look. We do this every other year.
Something else that is going on that same weekend that I learned about last Saturday I want to share and that is the "WOUNDED WARRIOR WEEKEND" in Port Lavaca Texas, down on the coast. This group brings in 500 wounded soldiers and treats them to fishing, food, a place to stay for the weekend When they catch fish, they are filleted, and prepared and sent by FEDEX to the soldiers home. I heard stories that brought me to tears. The work they do for this group in one weekend is wonderful to say the least.
HOpe to have some new pics to post soon. Will have quilt show pics at least after the show.
