St. Patrick's Day and Tom Brady Breaks Our Hearts

A message from Emma . . .

A short post this morning to wish you a Happy Saint Patrick's Day and to tell you about something Alex Anderson of The Quilt Show is doing. Quilters are fortunate that nearly all of us have large enough stashes and projects to keep us busy for the next few weeks. (Truthfully, we probably have enough to keep us busy for five years . . . make that ten years!  :-)

Alex Anderson is offering free mini quilt lessons online; you do not have to join The Quilt Show to view them. Yesterday's lesson on "Using Neutrals" was very interesting, and it will be posted in their newsletter and it is on their Facebook page. (I do not do Facebook, but I was able to watch the lesson.) Note: if you wish to view it on their Facebook page, scroll down to the video that say "neutrals," not the one where she is holding a phone. I believe there will be another LIVE lesson tomorrow, Wednesday @1:00 Eastern Standard Time.

And now, if things were not dismal enough, Tom Brady has announced that he is leaving the New England Patriots. It is hard to believe and even harder to accept, but I am sure that all of Patriots Nation will wish him the best wherever he goes. He has been a great quarterback and a truly class act. We have been blessed to have him for twenty years.

Stay strong. God bless the members of our medical profession, first responders, our leaders, and all  who are trying to deal with this devastating crisis.
