Sewing at Jenn's!

Last night Jenn had invited me over to her house to quilt. She made a delicious nachos supper and then I gave her the quilt I had made her. She loved it! I also gave her a matching pillowcase and purse and Wyatt's Baby quilt and burp clothes. Olivia seemed to think the quilt with the clowns could be hers. She loved the little wonder wallet I gave her and found all kinds of treasures to put in it.

She was quilting a quilt and I had brought several small projects to work on. I made a checkbook cover and wonder wallet to go with each of the purses I made recently. Then I worked on a couple runaround bags and got them almost ready to be put together. I cut out a wall hanging I'm making for my friend and worked on the 4 patches, but I was getting tired so I quit after I got one set of the 4 patches done. I'm hoping to finish up the top tonight, but we'll see how much I get done.

We had some nasty wind/rain last night, but by the time I left it wasn't too bad. I'm so thankful it wasn't nasty driving home. I had a great time and can't wait to get together with Jenn to sew again. Thanks Jenn!

I'm so glad she liked her quilt! I think giving them ranks even higher than making them!

Looks like you had a great time! I love to see the reactions when you give a quilt. It makes it work making it when they like it!

THANK YOU!! I had a blast sewing with you, too, and have already taken a nap with my new quilt!! A few people have stopped by and they go on and on about how talented you are when I show them what you made - you really have some skills, girl! Can't wait to see you again soon.
