Laura's sewing adventures
It's been so much fun to have Laura and Ian here visiting and when they haven't been on the road she's been having fun in Vicki's Playrooms.
I gave her free access to all of my fabric and supplies and she started by making a stack of potholders, some hot pads and a tea cozy for her MIL. You get the pattern for the potholders here.
She made this quilt top on her last visit here over a year ago. She brought it back with her to finish. I dyed a matching pink back and got her busy quilting on FloMo for the first time. See how effective simple quilting can be?
Now she is working on Christmas postcards. For these she found some hand dyed fabric for the back and some vintage feedsacks to weave for the ornaments. She's using the scraps now for some other card designs.
Friday we are going shopping and on her list is an extra piece of luggage to hold all of this stuff!

Wow, she has accomplished a lot on her visit to see you. What amazes me is that she got started on FloMo and just went with it. I think those must be excellent machines.

Looks like Vicki's is the place to go for a fun and active vacay!
