Moving Out – Moving In

Packing up our storage cupboards and library was quick work with many helpers on hand. It certainly was an advantage to have done all the sorting prior to today.

We’ll take many memories of the Senior Centre with us.

Our new space is very welcoming and we look forward to making new memories here.

Our last day

Although we don’t actually move from the Senior’s Centre until next week, the ladies have decided to meet at the Blue Mountain Clubhouse next week; we don’t want to be in the way of the packers and movers. So today was our last bee in our “old” location – good thing Penny brought a cake so we had a reason to celebrate!

There’s a new rule for the bee starting immediately – there is to be no more talk of the goings-on at the Senior’s Centre! We all have our opinions, we’re all a bit bummed, but we just have to let it go.

Some of us just don’t want to quit!

This was the fourth sewing day in a row for some of the ladies at the bee. Sandra J led the Tea and Quilts workshop on Saturday and many of us, including Sandra, took the Precision Piecing workshop on Sunday and Monday. So we were very forgiving of Sandra (even though we nearly fell off our chairs laughing) when she told us this story.

When Sandra got home from the class on Monday she and John had their dinner and then Sandra had a little nap. At one point John woke her to say she had a phone call but Sandra went back to sleep. Some time later she got up, made her lunch, fed her dog her usual morning treat, and put on her jacket. Just as she headed out the door she called to John to tell him she was leaving for sewing. Imagine her surprise when John told her it was still Monday night, not Tuesday morning!

If Sandra calls and asks you to take on a position within the Guild it will not be a figment of her imagination. Please give her request some serious consideration; without a full executive and chairs for all the committees our Guild will not be able to operate in a smooth and efficient manner. Better yet, why not call Sandra and volunteer for an empty spot.

In light of our move and the downsizing that will be required, the Library will be closed until after the move. Books can be returned at the Tuesday bees or the Thursday demo night but no new books can be borrowed. Any books that are deemed no longer necessary (in an attempt to save shelf space) will be offered for sale at the year-end party.

It was nice to have the “Ladies that Lunch” (Gwen and Kathy P) join us for lunch; Carola and Donna were off to the Senior’s Association for their Soup and Sandwich day. Sandy T dropped in for a chat as well.

Happy May Birthdays

Kathy Parker brought us a delicious Key Lime Pie to celebrate May birthdays. There were three honoured guests at the table – Kathy P, Cathy G and Angel. I think this was an extra special birthday for Kathy P!

We were glad to hear that Margaret’s husband is home and recuperating; we wish him a speedy recovery so Margaret can get back to sewing! A few of our usual crew went out to the Elders Lunch at Sliammon.

Looks like Spring

 

Although we still have to put up with some April showers, the flowers and greenery around the Seniors’ Centre certainly makes it look like Spring is here. It was a smaller than usual crowd today, but we were happy to have Donna H and Nina pop in for short visits.

Have you recovered?

Have you recovered from the quilt show? We had a good crowd at the bee on the Tuesday following the show; handing out the earnings from the Boutique may have had something to do with it. Clearly I was still lagging as I neglected to get the blog post written until now!
