20150905-210050.jpgand Karen is looking to expand her embroidery skills so we’re taking a Sue Spargo type approach to some cotton print fabrics – should be fun!

    Oh, I am always so inspired by your posts. I flew down to Portland, OR to help my daughter again and the plane had Aussie firefighters! Loved the accent…..closed my eyes and pretended they were doing EPP and I was with your group…the only highlight in a summer of fires and illnesses from smoke….waiting for clearer skies!

  9. Judy says:

    Love the line about the Aussie fire fighters, I imagine I am there with your group with every P & C blog I read! What is that shape that Peggy is using, is it the honeycomb? Beautiful work from all your girls. Jane’s arcs from 30’s are so pretty. Lucky new girls to be joining in. Thank you again for all the inspiration. Judy
