Beloit Sew-in on Wed Feb 9th

The Beloit group of Land of Lincoln Quilts of Valor rescheduled their sewing time due to the Blizzard of 2011. We met on February 9 and we had 7 regulars and 1 new sewer - welcome Mary. It was a bright and sunny day although it was very cold outside. The sun was a pleasant site. On a side note when I crossed the river on the Shirland bridge I was amazed to see at least 7 bald Eagles either flying or roosting. What a motivating site. We worked very hard and we had a great time and lunch was fantastic. Our new member is quite a good cook. I being the longarm quilter of the group came home with 8 more tops to quilt. We have been very productive - we all work well together and are very supportive of each other. Alberta announced that she had received a thank you note from a member of the 485th Engineering Co (December quilt delivery). So another successful sew-in and we will be back together on March 2. Hopefully the weather will continue to improve.
