Quilt Show n’ Tell – September 5th

 

ShownTell1

I just love flicking through my instagram feed, and I do it several times each day, or I would miss a lot. Im sure I could spend this time with sewing or something else, but its so relaxing to just sit there and look what the world is creating. Its quite inspiring for me. Head over to Tanyia @Domestic Deficit Disorder, to take a look at her favorites this week.

We were hiking, the kids met their aunt and uncle and had a fabulous time with them.
