It isn't quite Tuesday here in Nova Scotia but I will be off early in the am. so wanted to get this posted early . You see this is my treasure today , this is where I will be in the morning , in the church basement hand quilting on one of these quilts . This is truly a treasure to me each week , I absolutely love hand quilting and I also love the friendship I enjoy with the other ladies who join me each week . We start at 9:30 am and stay for lunch , I might add we eat well too , each week we take turns taking a hot meal complete with a delicious dessert and of course biscuits . I think I have gained a pound or two since I started this venture almost two years ago now. It all started when I asked these ladies to quilt a quilt for me which they did and when I returned to pick it up they suggested I join them . My reply was "Oh I don't know how to hand quilt "but they assured me that I would do fine and they have kept me so I guess I passed the test ;-0 I think I remember another blogger saying there is no greater treasure than friendship and I completely agree so today my treasure is the joy I receive each week hand quilting with my friends and helping out the church at the same time .
In these pictures you will see Joan marking the quilt before we start the stitching on our friend Diane's quilt and the second quilt is one that was made by a lady who is no longer with us but her granddaughter has asked us to quilt it so she can have it as a memory of her dear grandmother . These pictures were taken a few weeks ago so we have made some progress since this time .
