iPhone-o-Gram!! Three's a Scrappy Crowd!!

We convinced Lisa to come join us after lunch – twisted her arm to where she could not say no!

There are three machines humming in the basement, while two dogs sleep comfortably beside us.  Yes, Lisa's Shelby came too!

All three of us are happily stitching away on string quilt projects – covering paper foundations with random bits of scraps left from other projects. There is much swapping and trading going on!

If not downright thievery!

This is the kind of fun we get up to when the Hubster is out of town on business!

Roast cauliflower, and a large chef salad is on the menu for dinner – we have no curfew, you may find a sewing away past midnight at this rate!

Hoping things are stitchin' where you are – love from all of us in the basement--

This is when you should have Quilt Cam!

After the crazy schedule you have been on this past month you deserve this. What better way to relax than to have friends over to play in the basement! ENJOY!!!!!
