THE EAR OF CORN

I am working on a retirement quilt for Mr. Flood, the FFA Advisor at Brownwood TX High School.   The banquet that we are presenting it to him at is a short 2 weeks away.  Remember that saying that I wouldn't get anything done if I didn't have a deadline.  Well, how's that for a deadline; 2 weeks!  Yikes!  And I'm going to be in Missouri 1 of those 2 weeks.  Think I can get it done? 

I did finish the first block; the ear of corn.  For all you non-FFA people, there are certain symbols that represent certain things and are recited during the opening ceremonies of each FFA meeting.  It goes something like this: 

Vice President: "The secretary."
Secretary: "Stationed by the ear of corn."
Vice President: "Your duties there."
Secretary: "I keep an accurate record of all meetings and correspond with other secretaries wherever corn is grown and FFA members meet.
 
This sweet ear of corn was no easy task.  It took me almost 2 hours to complete it and it's not perfect.  In fact, I have a boo-boo in it but I'm not ripping it out.  It will have to do.  After all, I have a deadline!  Oh, and by the way, my once clean and organized sewing room now looks like a tornado went through and then backed up and went through again.  How does that happen in such a short time?

    Looks good and as a past FFA member, I remember
    those symbols and words well. You will get it done, I have no doubt. You might have to stay up sewing all night many nights to be exact, but it will be done and he will LOVE it.
