Sews Wonderfully!!!

Hello There!!

January is just flitting by, it seems.  The weather has been just super this past week.  Today it is mostly cloudy, windy and in the mid 40s.  Could certainly be much worse.
I'm posting my second star block in the series called Alaska.  I have all the pieces cut out for the next one, but will probably not get started on it today.
We are going to start a project at church for the next several months.  In conjunction with a mission group going to Africa to see about re-opening a hospital in Mozambique, we want to make little "pillowcase" dresses and boxer shorts for the children there.  Pastor will take them with him, so shipping won't be a problem. Our youth pastor wants to involve the youth, so we will be teaching beginning sewing in this process. 
In the feral cat colony, there is a new addition.  He is an intact male that at some point has had half his tail cut off.  Since he seems to have joined the group, we shall have him neutered and rabies shots done through Friends of Felines.  This group has been so good to us in helping with the trapping of our colony.  MamaCat definitely does not like him and routinely chases him off.  Perhaps when he is neutered, she will be better to him.
I do have a quilt on the longarm that needs attention this coming week.  I'm having a little difficulty trying to decide just how to quilt it.  Think I just need to stand and look at it until something comes to my feeble brain, lol.
Have a blessed week, all.
