March, 2014




Yesterday the handy dandy reminder thingy on my computer said it was time to write the March newsletter.  It seems like I just did that last week!  My husband was nearby as I started into a meltdown and voiced disbelieve.  He reminded me the February bee was a week late due to the church Super Flea and February just doesn't have as many days in it as other months.  He coached me through some deep breathing exercises that got me back on track and in front of the computer again.  So here's the March newsletter. 





     BEE REPORT   




At the February bee volunteers completed 35 quilts and made 32 tops.  To keep us all busy at the March bee we have 8 kit-kits ready to cut, and a basket full of kits ready to be sewn.  Plus there's a pile of quilts waiting to be tied and a few ready for binding.
Our February fundraising raffle items raised a whopping $93 for the batting fund!   AND we received four donations of fabric!  That much generousity will go a long ways towards helping us with our effort.







Colonial New York City hosted the first St. Patricks day parade in 1762, when Irish immigrants in the British colonial army marched down city streets.  In subsequent years Irish fraternal organizations also held processions to St. Patrick's Cathedral. The various groups merged sometime around 1850 to form a single, grand parade.

Since 1820, 4.8 million Irish have legally immigrated to the United States, according to the U.S. Census Bureau

 Legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck.

This paragragh signals the end of the newsletter, it seems kinda short this month.  I'm gonns go with one of the excused used on me as to why I had to write the newsletter this week when I just did that last week... February was a short month.

The next Peace by Piece Quilters bee is Thursday, March 6.   If you have any questions or would like any homework supplies please click on the Irish Teddy Bear below to send me an email and let me know what you want.
