Had a fabulous time chatting and reminiscing.

Shopping, playing games and just spending time with my girls….

Wednesday went to the craft show with DD2. We never seem to have enough time when we go there. Maybe need to go two days next year..
Here are a few of the fabulous quilts that the talented folk had on display..
This beautiful one was quilted on a domestic machine..

    I see your Furry Assistant really gets into the spirit of things. You might should let him Or her - select the layout for a quilt! LOL
