SIMPLY SPRING

While we are officially into summer and with rains on the way for lots of the country you may not need to sprinkle!  However this little sprinkling can is the perfect project to stitch on a rainy day.  Gearing up for Cedarburg's Strawberry Fest this weekend.  We will be having a kick off party at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts Friday from 4-6.  The winner of the Strawberry Challenge  will be announced and there will be refreshments.  You still have time to vote for your favorite.  There are all wonderful entries this year.  Will post some photos for you all to see.  Keep on punchin.
