Youth Spring Sports (Sample)
I don't know any team names, kid names, or results but took just a few photos of the youth sports covering the SportsPlex fields last Thursday (near ECC and Herald Elementary) with baseball games and soccer practices.
My schedule this time of year does not allow more than a random sampling of games. If your team is still still playing this summer send me a schedule and I might be able to make a game or two then. -- Ted Wright

Patchwork Quilters Plan July Show

Tonya Rosamond displays a retro quilt, designed around owl cameos - most of the fabrics were found in NE OK during a "quilt shop tour."
Guest Melissa Grubb joined 14 Patchworker members at the Collinsville Library April 10, 2012, as they discussed plans for a quilt show on July 15 during the Smithsonian Exhibit. The quilt show will be held at City Hall - more details will follow at a later date.

Donations were accepted for Newborns In Need - crib quilts and gently used items were just some of the items that will be distributed in Eastern OK. Door prizes were presented, and Janice Coke gave a program on creating a Dresden Plate block. She explained the various methods used, and also shared copies of the pattern.

The next Patchworkers meeting will be May 8, followed by the day-long Sew-In on the 12th.
