Show and Tell

August Sew n Tell

It was another grass party. I really need to call every month and make sure someone is there! Our sew n tell was great this meeting, so glad I got the pics before my phone died. The first several are our 2018 Travel Bees.


Then came last years finished Travel Bees.


Our scrap bag exchange projects were also due in August. There were a nice variety of items. There were more but I apparently didn’t take pictures of them.



And finally the regular Sew n Tell.


See ya next month!
