"Piece of Cake" quilt to be raffled for San Saba VFD

By Lynn Blankenship
 
 
One morning in May the San Saba Sew-N-Sews were chatting away, when Leola Hamrick began to discuss our San Saba Volunteer Fire Dept. and the possibility of our group doing a fundraiser for them and their new building. We were instantly "On Board" to make a quilt and sell raffle tickets. We began to research quilt blocks and found "Piece of Cake" in one of our quilting books. Each lady copied the pattern and came back the next week with enough blocks to make a queen-size quilt.

San Saba Garden Club September Yard of the Month

By Dianna Furlan
 
In the 1940s a couple fell in love, married and honeymooned in Mexico at a quaint hacienda. Upon return to San Saba, Mr. and Mrs. Shook built their family home modeled after their honeymoon destination. In 1949, a stucco style house with arches over the porch and log accents could be found at 1203 Dry St., little did they know that their San Saba Hacienda would one day be transformed into the beautiful home that is now occupied by Damian & Kassy Gomez and their children.
