Quilt show, update, and progress

First, I'll show you the teeny little bit of progress that's happened on the hussif...


My daughter-in-love likes Nemo, so I couldn't resist putting one on her hussif.  Thank you Maureen for the pattern!!

This past weekend was the local quilt show and I neglected to take my camera.  I wasn't worried though because I knew that Dolores was going to be there and she would take lots of pictures and post them on her blog.  If you'd like to see some of the quilts go HERE, HERE, and HERE.  The show was really well done and there were many many beautiful quilts there.  I especially liked the display of antique crazy quilts.

Finally - an update about the shooting that took place last week - the police have apprehended the shooter which is a huge relief for everyone.  Our superintendent is still listed in stable condition and has a long recovery period ahead of him.  You can read more about it HERE if you are interested. 

Today I'm linking up with the Monday Stitchery Link party at SuperMomNoCape HERE.

Today the quote is from Audrey Hepburn..... "Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.  As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands.  One for helping yourself, the other for helping others"
