So now it is just husband Stuart and me on our own again, I can get on with the hand-quilting I have promised to do on a quilt our group is making. This quilt is to be raffled to raise money for the local American church's youth mission trip to Romania this Easter. Although I do not go often to church, both my daughters were in the youth group when they lived in Bonn and both went on a couple of mission trips. They believe they gained a lot from the experiences they had and I feel they grew in confidence and strength because of the hardships they endured and those they witnessed around them. So we are making a very bright quilt with African fabrics and are sharing sections of the quilting. I will post a photo tomorrow.
While I'm quilting, I shall be thinking of what to cook for friends who are coming to dinner on Saturday and hoping everyone is keeping snug in this very cold weather.
