Threads of Life


Nancy Chrisman, Maria, and Sharon Jones sold raffle tickets yesterday at the Stories in the Forest storytime program at the Mall at Turtle Creek.

Maria is a member of the Women’s Advisory Council of the St. Bernards Development Foundation. The group supports the programs of St. Bernards Hospital in Jonesboro.

She’s created a Facebook page for the Council’s Threads of Life Quilt and Fiber Art Show, April 2-3. Check it out at

They’re raffling a hobo quilt – featuring symbols hobos used as their secret language to designate places where food was available, where people would welcome them or have them arrested, etc. I think Maria said she made three of the quilt blocks for the project.


A clown, whose name I failed to get, reads “How do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?” to a gaggle of kids at Stories in the Forest.
