February Quilter's Anonymous!

Only the truly addicted chose quilting over the Super Bowl on Sunday!  Terry began a new project that has been waiting to be made!  She made great progress!
And I made a dent in my Orca Bay quilt!  We enjoyed an afternoon of visiting, quilting and cinnamon rolls!  Just the two of us ... it was a wonderful way to spend the day!
