3rd Annual Last Stitch Effort

Last Stitch Effort is an annual event for members of PMQG to finish up those holiday projects.  

12 members spent the better part of their Saturday eating and being silly together!  Of course there was some sewing, too!

Shelia was working on this beautiful quilt.

Bobbi made some really cool aprons

Nancy made an awesome yellow purse 

Michelle worked on finishing up some Sew Together Bags

And the silliness.....
We wanted to see if Kathy could bit into Sheila's ginormous bag...

.... And she did!
