Newsy Letter July 2013

Hello Everyone!

Welcome Back!  Can you believe that it is almost July already?  The second half of the year is about to start and with it, I believe that we need to push the old aside and begin anew. 

This means that we can start over again as a group.  The mystery quilts and challenges will continue but maybe we can try some new ideas.

To start off the second half of the year, my first idea is to have a retreat this coming holiday weekend from Thursday to Sunday night.  You can do anything you want on the retreat but we will have a Lottery Block, some games and a lot of fun!  I hope that you will be able to join in!  More details later.

Donna R. will be restarting the Stay At Home Round Robin this month.  She has been working a lot lately and as have I, fallen behind a little.   

I propose a Block Swap to start this month.  Not sure what block it will be but it will be a good way to get to know each other.

Also, the Oh, My Stars mystery quilt will be ending by the end of July so, watch out for a new one to start in September.  I need a month just to think about it. 

I need to hear from our leaders of the Birthday FQ swap and  the Strips Swap to see where we stand, please let me know if we plan to continue or not.

I think that is enough to think about for a while.  Please feel free to let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions to share.  Remember this group doesn’t exist if you don’t participate and is here for you.

Chat more later.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
