Alien Invasion

14 Oct

Last night was our Prairie Pioneer Quilters meeting here in Grand Island.  I am part of our Community Projects Committee.  We are responsible for providing quilts to worthy causes in our area.  We also sponsor an open sew day once a month.  So in the spirit of building our community of quilters, and the most bestest holiday HALLOWEEN, I dressed up for our meeting last night and said this . . .

my green alien face

Greetings, quilters of earth.

My name is Dresden of the Plate Family

I come from the planet Trapunto.

I have come to your world to offer assistance.  Aid in identifying your long forgotten UFOs lost to the dark recesses of your studios and closets.  The Block of the Month that has not seen the light of your sewing machine since before the invention of the blessed rotary cutter.

I will be in attendance to keep you  on point.  Bring your UFOs to the Quality Sew & Vac on Saturday and I will help you bring your project to it’s long awaited conclusion.

The only payment I require for my journey is a meal of your earth food.  Share a dish with me at mid-day and I am at your service.

I’m bummed my make-up didn’t show better in the pictures.  But I had a great time and made alot of people laugh.  Several ladies told me that they didn’t even recognize me.  Now, I’m definitely the youngest member of our guild and I’m 6’1″ tall.  I kinda stick out.  I hope that gives you an idea of how different I looked last night even if the pictures don’t.

Enjoy yourself today!
