Friends with Strings Attached...

Eager to post my Tula progress:
Tula  #16
Tula #17...Sorry Tula, this block was so not me...I had to consult with Kaffe.

Christmas in August....started the other night here at the house.
It was a family affair..We stuffed with rice, the hot/ cold bean bags
(made with spare charms sewn together)
for the teachers at the elementary school.
We give them a big basket early December.
Some microwave them for warm hands during bus duty.
The nurse has a freezer full for little boo-boos...

 At my sewing bee today, I sewed closed 85 of them.
All ready for holiday giving....sooo proud!!
That Stitch has to have his nose in everything I do!!!!

And I mean strings attached...I had thread all over me from sewing for 6 hours.
A fun quilting day with the Guild ...
Kathy fixing my machine...Little Blue..
She has one just like it...Blue Bell.
Sewing, sewing ...all day long...

And, Linda...oh, that friend Linda....
brought me parts of the bolts she bought at Foust.
Surprise fabric...
Making me...unbelievably happy....Just gotta show it all to you.

Someone asked if we would ever be able to use up our stash.
We went on about...Would you ask a stamp or coin collector to
use their collection????
And then dear Linda..said...or their gun collection..bang...OMG
Twas just a brilliant day.
