We’ve been down in Georgia helping our daughter move, but I’ve still managed to find time to get some chores ticked off the long to do list for The 70273 Project, and I left plenty for later.

Deena Sanders and The Tree City Quilters invited The 70273 Project to display a quilt in their 2017 quilt show to be held in Gainesville, Florida on May 6 and 7 of next year.  I’ll be sharing more information closer to time, but if you’re in the vicinity, go ahead and put it on your calendar.

Encouraged by Janine Morrell, I submitted a quilt to QuiltCon East to be held in Savannah, GA in  February 2017. I’ll keep you posted.

With the help of The Engineer, Chloe Grice, Ada Hewell, Deirdre McConathy, Patti Nies, and Peggy Franke, I finished creating Holiday Cards to go in The 70273 Project Card Shop. It was a tedious, time-consuming, challenging, detail-oriented endeavor . . . and I loved every minute of it because it afforded me opportunities to exercise my graphic design, coding, linking, and organizing, skills. It whisked me right back to years gone by when I did these kinds of creative endeavors and presentations regularly. It requires intense concentration and focus, which often feels like a vacation for my brain that is usually being tugged in a myriad of directions. So if you haven’t yet sent out your holiday cards and even if you have, drop by and help yourself to printable and digital postcards and printable notecards.

Quilters in France continue to be busy commemorating, and I couldn’t be more excited or grateful for their participation.

Six more Angels got their wings this week when they made financial donations to The 70273 Project:
