Be Free Bees

Did you know people still do quilt bees?  No?  Me neither.  I don’t know about you, but I certainly had a misconception about quilting bees.  The imagery in my head immediately goes to a group of elderly ladies with needle and thread sitting in a circle in a church basement.  They’re having a great time […]

Dance bag take 2
