2. This weekend, I have plans to go to a local quilt show with my friend Ruth.
3. I love my hobbies especially quilting. I have been doing it for 12 years now and I hope that I am getting better at it as time goes on. I am also having a good time with photography.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Face in the Crowd.

Daily Prompt: Conversant
Conversant in the art of needle and thread, the shy Katie walked across the stage to the podium. She smiled at her audience then began her talk about her love of quilting. She shared her many years of working with needle and thread. Then told of how she lovingly made quilts for her children, grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren.
Katie went on to say that through quilting she had made lasting friendships when she became a member of several quilt guilds over the years. Attending many classes and teaching many as well, Katie loved to share her talents with others especially making quilts for those in need.
Her motto, she said is, There is nothing more comforting than being wrapped in a quilt lovingly made with needle and thread. The audience applauded Katie at this point in her presentation. She was an inspiration to all of the quilters in attendance.
When the audience quieted down, she told them that it didn’t matter if they were hand quilters or made use of sewing machines, have fun doing what you love. She also said that it was important to realize that every quilt we make doesn’t have to be an heirloom. The world needs those, it’s true, but it needs those sturdy utilitarian quilts that give love to so many.
After Katie’s wonderful talk about quilting, she went on to show some of her beautiful quilts.
