On a very chilly Tuesday morning at our regular Sew-NSews meeting, Martha Roe Terry shares with us that we should make a baby quilt for the Presbyterian pastor and his wife. We all agreed and ideas began to develop, as we remembered Pastor Drew coming downstairs to check out our projects and occasionally he wanted some help with buttons. He has always been very encouraging and praised all our quilts and sewing projects. His wife, Hannah Harrison, lives in San Antonio and has been studying for a medical degree.
