QU Quilt Show (7)


I was very moved tonight, but I don't know what I am supposed to say.

It's been more than an year since I started to go to the Old Man's club - Ham radio - with R. I am not interested in ham radio at all, but like to see "pretty" old men. I mean, there is not any difference between quilting ladies and ham gentlemen in term of enjoying what they like to do like a kid. I see many commonalities between a quilting group and a ham group. I anyway enjoy seeing people who are having fun.

This is R's second year to serve refreshment to the group. Since R wanted to try to achieve his role as perfect as he can, I started to help him. Well, 99% of the members are men, what do you expect for the refreshment? I don't do much about it because R is in charge of it, and he is pretty good about serving (helping) people, also I don't want to be beyond my role - R's friend -.

Since the members recognize that I help R for refreshment, they have been trying to give me a credit. But I am not a member of the group; I am not interested in ham radio; I help R for refreshment because I feel guilty of attending the meetings without paying annual fee. I have gotten cash a few times thanks to them who paid lottery for me; and they put my name - they don't know my name so it is as "R's friend" - in the news letters.

Tonight, the president asked R about how they could approach me wondering why I don't want to be recognized. The word from him that very moved me is "She is one of us."

Very impressive, isn't it.

Here are the pics of continuous QU Quilt show for today. Hope some of you would be inspired with some of pics :)
