I attended a Prayers & Squares meeting at Richmond Hill Baptist Church, Boonville, NC, yesterday and had a very good time. Stupid me forgot to take my camera. Somehow, I don't think it would have been polite to take photos at a church I am not a member of, so guess it worked out for the best. I am so glad that I gave them the fabric I would never use. A lot of it was already in use by them!! Some of the ladies were cutting fabric, some where making the "quilt sandwich", one had brought her sewing machine, and some were tying knots. Someone had already hemmed the quilts, and they were "fit to be tied", so to speak! A group of ladies (recipients) came in at 11:30am and there was a Dedication Ceremony, and then we all sat down to lunch. The lunch was prepared by the Church custodian, who is one of the quilters named Lot, she is originally from Tiawan. I could tell that she is a real asset to the Church!! After lunch, they resumed working on whatever they were working on before, but I was so tired that I went home for a nap, totally exhaused (from watching them). Many thanks to the members of this group for their hospitality and I enjoyed my visit a lot!
