Quilt Show + More

Congratulations to Diane Schmaltz for winning the "Battle of the Sexes" poker tournament last night! 
 
 
Runner up was Dennis Runyon.  
 
Another spectacular event this past week was the annual Quilt Show.  It is amazing to see the quality of work done by this group! 
 
 
Beautiful quilts were created and donated to the Abused Women's shelter

 
140 colorful pillow cases were donated to the Children's Hospital.
 
And over 120 baby blankets and baby clothes were donated to the Casa Grande hospital.  All these items are truly a labor of love and will be enjoyed by many folks in need of cheer and support.
 
These quilts are works of art!


 
Hand-crafted purses, doll clothes, and lots of embroidery, cross stitch, red work items were displayed.

 
Earlier in the week, eager students attended another computer class on how to organize their photos. 
 
 
Our weather has remained absolutely perfect for the last month and a half.  Lovely sunshine and warm temps.  It has truly been a wonderful winter here in our adventure land.  In fact, it is sooooo nice outside that I just haven't been disciplined to sit at my computer and work on the blog.  I'm enjoying the season!!
 
Yesterday, I spent time at the tennis courts watching the activity there.  Tennis lessons and practice sessions were being held along with a couple regular games.  The courts have been very active this year.  Softball games were being held, lots of pickleball, lawn bowling, shuffleboard, horseshoes, golf, etc etc etc.  Too much stuff happening for me to catch it all on camera.  Guess you'll have to be here yourself to take it all in.
