A quick prayer for the fathers of the Quiltmamas - here and no longer here - and also to our 'Quiltpapas". These guys who pick up the slack when we head to Lancaster, look at our creations, give advice when asked (and know enough not to give it when not asked), support us.....all the while not fully understanding the need to buy fabric, cut it into small pieces and sew it back together......THANK YOU and Happy Father's Day!!!!!! A little story. Yesterday, our neighbor down the street - Mike - was coaching his two daughters (6 and 8 years old)in their championship game over at Hilltop. They had a very good team - but were down by one run in the bottom of the sixth - their last chance. They had the bases loaded, with two outs, got a hit and now it was tied. Bases still loaded and this little girl comes up to bat. She's a good player but her mom told Mike before the game that she had a terrible week.....her Dad died from a heart attack in November and there were a lot of tears this week leading up to Father's Day weekend. She had two strikes on her, watched a few balls and then swung away and got a hit. They won the game and got the championship trophy. Did her father help her to get that hit? I believe he did.

Hasn't this week been just beautiful?! Boy.....we deserved it after that early, wicked heat. That's for sure.......did you see the ticker over there? It's down to 1 day....yahoo!!! I'm thinking of fasting after dinner tonight so I"m ready....can't wait. Can't wait to see everyone also.....congrats to all the students who are finishing up this week - or are already finished. Mare - your summer vacation is going to start too, isn't it? Casa Henderson has big doings going on this week...a new roof? What else is happening? Today is my last day of work, so it will be the slowest day ever....just sayin. Finished all the year-end gifts, quilts, hangings and whatever else.......I can't wait to start something I just want to make - for fun. Pam - hoping to see you tomorrow and catch up on the Delaware happenings and the sale process. Take care, mamas......see you tomorrow.....piece.

Do yourself a favor - watch the Julia Sweeney video on Piece 'o Cake's blog - make sure there are no kids around - I was absolutely crying when she mentioned the 'waste treatment plant'.....very funny.

Hello, girls! Wow - what a difference a couple of days make - it is truly beautiful out there today!! Hope you get out to enjoy it. Pam - hello down there in Deleware! How's it going? The girls and I were in Cape May yesterday - we didn't get over to where the ferry is or we would have waved to you and Lewes. Lois - hope things are going well out there in Ohio. What's new with other folks? I changed the ticker over there on the right in anticipation of dinner at the DiNardo's - can't wait!!! Have a wonderful weekend, ladies!!! Piece....
