In a previous post I talked about a visit to our Bee from Double Nickels president Toni Ford, who is chronicling quiltmaking by seniors. Founded in 2006 by Antoinette Ford, Double Nickels Theatre Company is a community theatre whose focus pays tribute to the legacy of seniors and veterans by highlighting and sharing their true life stories.
Friday I attended a cook-out at Toni's home to preview the final version of her film, "Senior Quilters: Keeping the Art Alive," and it was great! I was proud to be a part of it. In the photo are Double Nickels board members Antoinette Ford (right) and JC Hayward.
I was debating whether to blog about the event because I didn't get a lot of pictures and I'm a bit tongue-tied (or finger-tied) on what to say about it, but I'll share what I have, it is what it is!
Beautiful quilts on display!
This lovely quilt was given to the caterer by her grandmother - why didn't I get close ups???
and what would a cookout be without great food!
The Grillfather is an avid fisherman, he caught the fish he was deep-frying!
yes, that IS home made sweet potato pie!!!
I don't know why I didn't get more pictures of the quilts, what was I thinking? Quilts were hung under the trees and draped over the fences.
Double Nickels will release the film on You Tube soon, I'll let you know when it is available. You might see someone you know!
That's it for now, have to get me gone before the parking restriction time kicks in at 9:30, they DO give $50 tickets!
That's it for now, sew forth and sew on til later
