Me? Yes! I volunteered to become the Community Service Chair at my guild. It was a vacant position, and we need to do something for Community Service. It's an important part of our guild, yet it seemed that it had hit an obstacle, and it wasn't clear what would happen next. So I decided to take the bull by the horns.
Not that impressive, really, except that I'm also the newsletter editor, so I'm taking on a chunk. I think it'll be fine. I always have a lot of ideas for quilt destinations, so hopefully we can keep it interesting.
At our meeting last night we had the final show of the past year's community service quilts. Wow! What a fabulous year of productivity! (That's actually part of the problem.. a lot of people are slightly burned out.) I got to bring home all the quilts that we will donate to Bundles of Love (a local charity). There are about 70 quilts. I sorted them to make sure each one has a label. Here are the piles:
Meanwhile, in other news, my mother is moving into assisted living this week. We are very relieved, because she needs more frequent overseeing by a staff who can help her in medical situations. (For example, she has taken several falls lately.) She is happy she will no longer need to grocery shop and make her own meals. Win-Win. Soon I'll go visit and see her new digs.
