We had our quarterly community service day at guild today.
We had a lot of donated fabric and we made receiving blankets for a local organization. That didn’t take very long so we then worked on cutting up kits from other donated fabric to use to make other charity quilts.
We had meatball sandwiches and several deserts. Someone brought a chocolate swirl angel food cake so I had a little slice of it (of course it is non fat). I am still trying to stick to Weight Watchers so I took my own frozen dinner and ate that + the cake, of course.
Look at the wonderful present that Cindy brought to me. Her daughter sent it to her along with her birthday present all the way from Japan. Cindy had one and since I admired it, she got one for me. Isn’t it wonderful to have such great thoughtful friends.
The handles can be put on the fork and spoon or on the chopsticks and the parts snap into the little case so you can carry your eating implements with you. Since we are trying to urge everyone to bring their own plates and silverware for meals at guild, this is perfect. Now I need to make a small bag to carry a plate, cup and napkin and then I will be all set.
Our theme for our next retreat is “Going Green” so things like this are perfect!
