September General Discussion: Birthday Block Exchange
Hello everyone! This is Jeanne. I will be your main contact person for September. It has worked well for me and Kristene to alternate as the contact person for the month so I am back and Kristene gets a bit of a chance to rest and recover.
This thread is provided for you to post photos of your finished Birthday Block quilts or any questions you may have pertaining to the Birthday Block Exchange or just to stop in to say hello and let us know how you are doing.
We have lots of birthdays taking place in September, but I also noticed that many of the blocks to the birthday members are already in the mail and a few have been received. Excellent job, everyone!
Also, I will be in the process of looking over what has been suggested for 2012. If you have any more comments on group plans for next year, please e-mail me or post them here.
As many of you know, I went to see my older daughter in California for August so I could be there for her birthday and help with the triplets for 2 weeks, so the month of August really flew by for me! I had a great time with them and the odd thing was the babies thought I was so funny. They would just laugh and laugh. I don't know if that was good or bad. LOL Here is a picture of the triplets taken while I was there. They are now 6 months old.
I hope everyone is doing okay with all the strange weather events that have been taking place. I arrived back in South Carolina to hear an earthquake had been felt here before I landed and then along came Irene which treated us pretty well, but of course you worry when the storm might be heading your way. I know the northeast got lots of worries from all the rain and then today I see about all the wildfires in Texas. On my way back home I transferred in Phoenix and I believe the temperature around 9 p.m. was reported to be 112 degrees! What a summer we have had.
Take care and I am certainly looking forward to fall.
