She has Wings!

I've been almost working on Fairy Flora these last few weeks. The krienik is making a bit slower but that's okay. Am hoping to order some more beads for her next month.

Haven't been spending much time on the internet as of late, mostly from working on FF, but also trying to fight with my sewing machine, can't get it to work properly and I have a few quilts I was going to put together next month for the Barron center, I am not happy that I'll not be able to donate before the chill really starts setting in, but it will give me more time to try and hand-sew some more tops for next year. I'm afraid I may have to invest in a new machine, which will not be possible for some time.

This past weekend was quite eventful. Friday evening my chapter of Rolling Thunder was invited to one of the local VFW's to hold a brief rememberance ceremony for POW/MIA day ( I also started training a new girl for work as well) and we held our own in Sanford on Saturday morning. Sunday was even more hectic, but I wasn't there, my chapter of Rolling thunder was asked to bring an escort for the traveling wall from York to Lewiston, haven't heard any word on last count of bikes, but we were hoping to get at least 1000. And this Saturday I am attending a wedding for one of our members.

Not sure how many of you may be from the Maine, New Hampshire border, but on 6 October Rolling Thunder will be collecting toys (new and unwrapped) for veteran's childrens in the parking lot of Wear's Bonnie at 48 Winter Street in Sanford. So far it looks like I'll be able to attend this one. Even if you can't make it yourself, if you know of anyone who may be interested in this please let them know. Don't quote me on this one, but I seem to remember her saying she's been collecting all year, and I believe we'll be giving them to the center at the December meeting, so she may be willing to accept any donations till then.

Mary, the floor stand I have is an el cheapo model, but works for what I need it to do. I picked it up at Michael's. It's a F.A. Edmunds Universal craft stand.

Carol, the wizard fob you sent me last year for my birthday is helping me along with Fairy Flora.
