Home Again!

We've been to Fremont NE to a Heartstrings sew in.  Lots of talking, sewing, and good fun.  I did take a few pictures.

Front Row--Sue from Missouri, Henrietta from Hawaii, Sheree from MN, Julia from NE, Mary from MN, Jenny from NE

Back Row--Linda from NE, Becky from MO, Lori from SD, Jay from NE
I know one friend of Jay's left early, but this is MOST who attended.  Julia sewed valiantly even though she had an injury!  

It was lots of fun, if you ever have a sew in close to you--GO!!  Jay made two wonderful homemade soups (Jay--I need the recipe for the vegetable!)   I brought health food.  (Yeah right--if Twinkies are health food!)  And there were many other goodies as well.  We had a great time--Thanks for hosting us Jay!  The Fremont Library was a perfect place to have this--Jay, thank them for me!

And although there was a shopping trip downtown (it was National Quilting Day) I stayed and sewed and didn't buy anything!

Glad you and Henrietta made it back to SD safely!

It looks like you girls had a lot of fun at the sew-in. And I don't know about Twinkies, aren't they one of the things that could survive a nuclear explosion? Just joking. I love them too! On occasion.

You sound so virtuous..."I stayed and sewed and didn't buy anything." I've ordered your halo. LOL WE were just helping the economy you know....

Twinkies ARE health food aren't they??? The one I ate tasted healthy!!

What fun I wish we had sew in here in Utah. I think the mormons call it relief society.

I'm just catching up on blog reading after the NE trip and turning around and heading to GA for the wedding.

Love the photos from the sew-in. It was so fun seeing everyone again - I can't wait for the PA one in April -- it's a multi day event so I know we'll get lots done.

You've been so good cleaning up your sewing room and it's nice to see I'm not the only that has piles of quilts everywhere - mine are all in different stages of completeness.
