Google Alerts picked up this news story today:
"The age-old tradition of quilting, recalling a quaint circle of ladies sharing gossip while silently sewing fabric patches, doesn't exactly mesh with rock and roll, The Doobie Brothers, and the BR Cohn Fall Music Festival. That is about to change."

Quilters and librarians are neck-and-neck (and up to their necks) in stereotypes.

And I'm both, and I am not a stereotype. (I hope.)

Homespun Squares

"Homespun Squares," 70 x 70. Started and finished(!!) this month. This is my contribution (on behalf of Waukegan AAUW) to the Lake County Women's Coalition's annual fundraising tea.
This year is the last tea, but I'm sure I'll have an opportunity to contribute at their Women's History Month celebration.
