"Quilting" Lost Mountain Ward Style

Here are some highlights of the Service Project we did for Tranquility House. We were able to tie 4 quilts. We could not have done it without the help of many hands. Thanks go out to all who contributed, especially Karie Cheney, Janalee Wood, and Karie's mom, Sister Buttle. They spent so much time putting these quilts together to get them ready to tie. And thank you so much to Kathyrn Miller for getting this all organized. What a great idea! The activity girls joined us and learned so much. We appreciate Julie and Jenny for bringing us all together, and for the work they did to help us get it all ready.

It took many teachers, but we got the job done.

Some of the Activity Day girls worked on another sewing project. They were able to practice their stitching. Jenny Woods was a great teacher.

Silver Comet Trail

We had such a nice time on the Silver Comet Trail on Friday. The weather was divine and the company even better. The fall leaves were absolutely gorgeous. Here are a few highlights. Oh, and the sister you don't recognize, that's my sister, Lindsay here visiting me from Utah. She was so complimentary of all the friendly people in Georgia.

Everyone is pushing everyone else's children. It's so confusing!

Kathryn tried to take a picture of me, taking a picture of her. And here come the strollers! No, Lauri hasn't had a baby; she's helping out Ali, by pushing baby Boston.

Karie and Kimberley brought their bikes and kept circling back to check on the rest of us.

Cathy and Renate took off WAY down the trail never to be seen again. Hee-hee! Just kidding. They were serious walkers, just truckin' along. Go girls!
