Sewing Bee

I had the best day today.

My sister in law Alice, another friend of ours Kathie Snell and I sat down to do the hand sewing binding on a quilt Alice has made.

The quilt is so large it would take her quite a long time to sew on her own.

We enjoyed sitting around a table with the quilt on top and each of us on a side of our own and proceeded to sew at our own pace.

Much talking, and laughing and before we knew it, time for lunch.

Alice made us a wonderful lunch and we pigged out.  Had a chance to see her newly improved sewing studio.  She has added cabinets and a built in sewing area which we fell in love with.

Loved her studio before, but now with the improvements its even nicer.

After sewing today with the girls, I now understand why ladies have enjoyed their sewing bees of the past.  How can you not have a good time, making beautiful quilts and spending time with good friends and family and terrific food.

I would do this again anytime anywhere.

Who needs a binding sewn on???
