Sewing Camp Recap

Here it is, the short and quick of it:

Chloe got permission to do sewing camp at the last minute ( complaining about it all week and she loved sewing her little heart out)

The girls sewed every afternoon away with these wonderful grandma types that lovingly taught them to sew independently and, quite honestly, ambitiously.

The moms sewed every night away (we would have sewed every afternoon away, but the kids took all of our machines!)

Lia and I each made a quilt from Material Obsession (you know, the easiest one in the book?) to teach Lia the basics of quilting a la free motion

Altogether, a week full of cousin and sister bonding. My only regret? That it was the week after Tony came back from sea and I felt like a big time intruder. Big. Time.

I LOVE the picture of the James "fat face"! You have to send me a link to that one! So cute.

When I told Tony you felt guilty, he said, "Didn't I thank them for coming?" He swears he didn't mind at all - he got to brag at work about how many children were at his house.

I also love how everyone ended up next to their "friend" in the group picture. I'm betting you didn't stage that.
