Congratulations to Silky P. for winning our October Monthly Raffle!
Thank you everyone who participated!
Everyone thinks (and hopes!) they are different and unique. We all want to feel that we maybe are a little bit different than the next guy. So, I was sitting and eating my brunch at work, which I very often do, and a young girl of about 11 said she also eats Cheerios with chocolate chips. Now imagine my utter suprise! I always thought only my kids and I did that! And here was a perfect stranger saying she loved to eat her Cheerios with chocolate chips! Maybe she was stolen at birth?
Shocking! I actually found a pleasant post office in Brooklyn! When I googled the post office in my area, the reviews were unanimous: the worst post office ever. I had practically given up hope on finding someone nice in a p.o. when I found this one. They agreed to hand stamp all my post cards without charging an extra fee, unheard of cooperation!! THANK YOU, whoever you are!
I recently went on a tour of Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn and had a great time! The tour guide, yes- tour guide(!), said the cemetary was the second biggest attraction in the 1800s in NY. My friend and I had been planning to go for 8 years and we finally made it. We were totally entertained and in awe of the place, we are even planning on going back for part 2 tour. Suprisingly enough, there were about 30 people on the tour. We’re not the only nuts! 🙂
If you are in NY, try to make it for a tour. Great trip!
|I went to a quilting retreat last week on the 5. I think it’s the best kind, the one that I get to spend a day with friends who enjoy the same interest, quilting, even if we do come from very different backgrounds. We are the Quilters of the Night Kitchen. Yesterday we were able to put together 3 soldier quilts that the Brooklyn Quilters Guild collects to give out to veterans. We all worked fast and almost finished all 3 tops. food, music, talk, and quilting-who could ask for anything more? a great time was had by all.|
I think I’ve mentioned it before but I’m going to throw it out again, maybe this time someone will catch it. Anyone interested in starting a guild? Meeting to be held on a weeknight instead of on Saturdays. I know there are a lot of Sabbath observers in Brooklyn that are also quilters. Would someone like to get the ball rolling? We can use the store as a stepping off point. Email me please.
