Please remember there isn't a meeting this week, or next week, or the week after that!  We won't meet again until the 21st of August.  That's the day of Jeanne's styrofoam lunch carrier project.  It is just beautiful and I know you'll want to participate.  If you need information you can call Jeanne.  

We will also be swapping the dangles on the  If you signed up for the dangle swap and won't be there, give your dangles to someone to bring.  

That will also be the day to make your final Hummingbird payment.  Please remember to call Becky Welsch if you want a thread or project kit for Hummingbird.

And...Kathy Sublett will be teaching her 3D class we all enjoy on the 28th.  There is a $5 kit fee, so call her if you want to sign up for that.  I think you want to take this...all of the parts are cut, so you just get the fun of making the block!

And finally, from Bobbie:
Robin Cockrell was a long time member of Thimbleweeds and has moved to Oklahoma where her husband is now employed. Robin worked with Community Service for many years, housing the fabric and batting for TW.  Many of you would see her hauling in tubs of the fabric, batting and unfinished quilts to many meetings, she along with others would cut many kits at home for us to sew and kept track of all the quilts to be donated to various organizations.  If you can, would you please make her a block, then turn it back into Phyllis and lets show Robin that Thimbleweeds is very thankful for all the hard work she did for so many years.
Robin Cockrell    9.5" unfinished block
Fabric: Batik
Colors: Turquoise, Purple & Lime Green
Your block can be either pieced or applique, totally your choice.  Blocks will be collected by Phyllis Allen up until the last meeting in October which will be October the 16th.
Thank You Ladies!!!!

I think that covers everything on my list,
