Show & Tell plus Visitors!

What a beautiful Saturday to be out and about!
Speaking of beautiful - we got to start our day off with a great show and tell project. This is Kendee (and her granddaughter) with with her "tree quilt". This quilt was inspired by Kendee's son and daughter-in-law to honor their wedding anniversary.  The quilt represents initials carved in a tree trunk as a symbol of enduring love. The red heart is embroidered with the couple's initials and wedding date and the quilting was done to resemble the patterns seen on a living tree. A simple and very creative idea. Don't tell - the lucky couple will be receiving this as a Christmas gift.
Great job, Kendee - thanks for sharing this with us.

Next, we had some visitors. It's fun to find out where our visitors come from - sometimes other states and interesting places. We had a nice visit with sisters Carol (on the left) and Judy (on the right). Judy hails from Colorado and Carol from Wellsville!  Our Cottage Rose quilt makes a great backdrop for a photo!

We were especially pleased to see Dennis and Kathy stop by today. They were participating in the MS 150 which is an annual bike event covering 150 miles!! The MS 150 raises money for research to help those affected by multiple sclerosis - a great cause.  Dennis even got a few
more miles in while Kathy did a little shopping. That is teamwork!

And, we did not forget about our chores! Peggy and I kept busy getting those fat quarter shelves refilled. Each folded fat quarter has a place - we got all the way around from the purples to the greens.  How do you like our shop selfie?
I think we are ready now for some more visitors!

Have a great weekend, and we hope to see you soon -
