Hawaiian Coins Presentation Went Well

Things went differently than planned at the office-wide meeting today.  My presentation of Hawaiian Coins was to take place at the end of the meeting, along with several other gifts to Dave, our retiring director.  Unfortunately, I was inadvertently forgotten.  The director gave his closing remarks, and we were dismissed.

The good news is I was able to do the presentation later...four times!  The first time was semi-privately to Dave, where I explained the story behind the quilt, and the meaning of the yet-to-arrive airplane fabric for the back.  Dave really liked the quilt.

Part of today's celebration was a catered lunch for the staff.  I made three public presentations to the lunch crowds as different groups came and left the room.

Another part of today's festivities was an afternoon open house, with many guests from outside our office.  Among the guests were lots of retired staff--it was like old home week.  I was on standby to do another presentation, but the crowd was too noisy to try to quiet them down, and I was okay with skipping it.

I got plenty of compliments on the quilt, and now I'm waiting for the airplane fabric to arrive so I can finish the quilt and give it to Dave for keeps.
