Wednesday November 5, 2008

Making woolen ornaments was the project in my class today at
The Pine Needle Quilt Shop in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
Four beautiful warm hearted women attended class and
we had a GREAT time stitching and gettin to know each other.
There is no better way to get to know someone than with needle and thread in your hand!!
