Sewing with Grace

Gracie came over on Tuesday to have a sewing day with me. We had a blast! Love that girl:) We ended up sewing from 9 in the morning til 5 in the afternoon....we just kept going and going and going. We did stop to go out to lunch which was nice too. Grace picked all the fabrics from my stash, we cut them into 5 inch squares and started banging out the quilt. Chain-stitching helped sew all those squares together.

 Hard at work.

Well, you can certainly tell we were at it all day by the looks of these last pics...our hair is a mess! But we're happy! Stella* and I decided that we MUST do this more often and that we will definitely do it annually around her birthday. YAY!

We're hoping Auntie Kath will quilt it for us...hint, hint,auntie;)
