No School today!

My youngest daughter and quilting partner had a school vacation today. Unfortunately I had to work, and her dad is working nights, which means sleeping during the day, which, sadly, interferes with our sewing time (Our sewing room is just across the hall from the bedroom.)
Nice run on sentence wasn't it?
Well, genius' that they both are, daddy brought Vanessa's sewing machine, the ironing board, and cutting board downstairs to the dining room so she could sew!





This is what I found when I came home from work~ She got 23 scrappy 9 patches done for her next quilt!





She is going to do the disappearing 9 patch for this one. I love that she is as into quilting as I am!!
Life is Good!

What a wonderful DH to see that DD can sew while he is sleeping. Her patches look wonderful.

such pretty blocks- and you are quite lucky to have a sewing buddy in your dd- mine tried to embroider pillows this summer and got bored-

Love your story about being one of the world's smallest quilt guilds.

Happy Halloween!
