Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Saturday, October 26, 2013
The afternoon was very pleasant and a surprise because Dave and Roger came to my home and spent the afternoon with me. I can't remember the last time I've had such a relaxing afternoon. They loved Indy and I think Indy loved them because he didn't growl and bark at them. Dave asked to lay down for half an hour. So Roger asked to see my gardens and Indy needed out anyway. We walked around for a while and Roger liked my Secret Garden. We then went back into the house and I sat and started sewing a stack of pillows closed, while Roger played his guitar. Indy curled up and went to sleep. Dave came out of the guest room and started singing along to Roger's playing. What a way to spend an afternoon!!!
After having some freshly made apple pie that I made that morning, the guys left for the church. I then changed clothes since it was about time for Pat to pick me up and I got Indy ready to go. But what a surprise awaited.
Pat came in and started yelling that she was not going to take Indy to church and have him in the Sanctuary. It was no place for a dog. By rights I should have called the police because Indy is a service dog. I needed him there with me. I had about a 5 minute discussion with Pastor instead and told him if Indy can't come I was staying home. Pastor asked me to reconsider. I told him I'd come and leave Indy home but I was livid because it was against the law not to allow him access to be with me.
I cried throughout the whole evening, but did manage to put a smile on my face when talking to folks about the quilts. I heard a lot of descriptive words such as....works of art, exquisite, exceptional, creative, beautiful. Dave has decided that some will be used as wall hangings.
The concert was wonderful as always. I've lost track how many times I've seen these 2 guys in concert and I never tire of them. I have a few of their CDs too. I would have loved to buy Dave's song book, "Best of the Best". So many churches use his songbook for some of their contemporary services. I just love the songs in it.
Dave doesn't like photos during the concert. But here are photos of the quilt display and one photo of the guys getting ready to start.
