Dear, Dear AAQC ladies! You fill my heart with laughter and gladness and joy for living!
My time with you yesterday was so memorable. I can only hope you enjoyed it half as much as I did. I would love to come again, any time you want me!
African American Quilt Circle 2009
(The slide show doesn't include ALL the photos from yesterday, so please click the link above to view them all..I took more than the slide show could hold!)
My heart can't express in words all I wish I could say to you. Maybe that's because I'm still so full of yesterday's wonderful luncheon!! (Yes, there are pics of that in the slide show too!)
I am impressed with the overwhelming and abundant feeling of Sisterhood and close Community in your group. The welcoming of members from near and far, some who travel great distances for your meetings. And I was strengthened through watching every one in your group welcome in the new comers.
Quilters young and old, experienced and newly beginning, women teaching women. Women not only sharing the knowledge of quilting, but sharing their lives as well.
The shape of a circle itself is so symbolic of what and who you are. With no beginning, and no ending, it is eternal. It has no sharp edges or points, it is loving and kind. It is OPEN. It encompasses. The circle also places no single part of itself above any other. The circle is a symbol of Unity. I felt all of these in your midst.
Thank you so much for including me within the arms of your Circle yesterday!
