WE spend so much of our lives online these days, and that continuous flow of information and photos can make us sad. I telecommute most days, and the lack of physical social interaction takes a toll.
Luckily a few years ago I met you– members of the Central Virginia Modern Quilt Guild. I did not know any of these folks before 2015. Now I think of them as my best friends. I look forward to seeing them and talking to them. I want to know how their families are doing, where they’re going on vacation, and just how they are.
We meet the first Tuesday of the month at Studio Two Three. The place is conducive to sharing. It’s also just cool. Creativity oozes from the industrial building.
Our current president, Melanie, started a membership spotlight this year. What a treat it has been. Each month we get to learn about two members’ quilting and life journeys. We get to celebrate that member and applaud her accomplishments. The women in the photo at right were the featured members this month, Truda and Megan.
I want to say publicly and online that I need you, and I thank you for embracing me and for showing me you care every time I see you.
This is what the first week of our Couch Potato to 5K looks like. The first day it was hot and humid– thus the red. The second day was a beautiful Saturday morning, so blue. Yesterday was an evening run in the park where everything is green. The last one took about 20 minutes to make. I cut the strips to 2.25 inches wide. It’s about 12 inch long.
