Albion, Ne -- St. Michael's fundraiser

A few blogs ago, I posted an item that will be auctioned at the Night of Knights for Mount Michael. However, it would not be fair to St. Michael's in Albion, Nebraska if I would not do a blog on some items that will be auctioned at their fundraiser as well.

St. Michael's in Albion is where my home is and where I was educated by the Benedictine Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery in Yankton, South Dakota. The school there is still going strong -- almost the same as it was when I was there years ago. We also try to help them to keep it alive and able to give quality education.

Their fundraiser is as near to the Feast of St. Patrick's as possible. The parish was very Irish in its origin. So the fundraiser is this coming Sunday-- March 16th.

Below is a photo of a baby quilt I made for them -- it is the famous 9 patch -- actually I inherited the patches and just put them together and quilted the quilt. It is the very first quilt I have ever hand quilted. My mother would be on me about the large stitiches -- I am learning--Mom!!! Be patient with me!!



Below are a few more items for the St. Michael's fundraiser in Albion-- an Easter table runner and place mats-- table setting for four.





The last 3 photos are: St. Michael's Church, the rectory and the elementary school in Albion, Nebraska.
