A change of plans?

Hi friends, fellow quilters,

I am writing to you with a request. My mom's cancer is too strong for her body. She will be going to Heaven soon. I am sitting here in her room with the quilt that my children and I made for her on her lap. Quilts give so much comfort, first to the maker and then to the person who receives them. I am so grateful to be a quilter.

I wonder if it would be alright with you to postpone the "big" festivities of our anniversary until the November meeting. I talked with Kelly and we thought that it would still be so wonderful for you all to get together and have a "show and tell" and a hand sewing project night together on Wednesday. It has been such a gift to see all of your work this past year, to talk and laugh with you, to create a wonderful quilting community with you. It really has helped sustain me through this tough, tough year and I hope that it has given each of you something as well.

I will see you in November, but be with you in spirit on Wednesday night. Thank you so much for letting me quilt with you, I have learned a lot.
