There is reason our quilt shows always blow people away!!
We are a productive group of quilters, that's for sure!!
My favorite times are when we sit together
share stories by the fire.
We had quite the laughs this year when I asked some 'get to know you' questions.
A couple were....
What's the first thing you would do if you were a man??
How's the stupidest way you have been injured?
Still makes me giggle out loud about the dishwasher accident!!
Thanks for the fun, everyone!!
