It's that wonderful time of year again.
The time when all of Joshua's Aunts
get together for a week and sew.
Here are some photos to document
what all happened this week.
Claire with a princess backpack she made for her niece.
The most detailed backpack you will ever find.
It's equipped with a zip out carriage and the lost slipper.
She made the doll from scratch- a work of art indeed.
The princess has three hats to choose from,
and the backpack has a wind-up music box.
Too many bells and whistles to list.
Aunt Barbara with another intricate star quilt.
Aunt Emily creating a wall hanging for her mother-in-law.
Mom cutting a border for her quilt she pieced a few years ago.
Aunt Polly's wedding quilt for her son Timmy.
What a special gift.
Aunt Julia's creations- the striped quilt
is made from Grandfather's shirts.
Aunt Coleen's beautiful quilt blocks.
Aunt Cheryl's Valentine's quilt she is giving to herself.
I think it's a wonderful gift.
Aunt June's velvet fans.
Julian sewing on her last border.
Some of the great Aunt's came to visit.
Grandmother taking a break the right way.
This morning everyone came up to our house for a brunch.
Hannah and the other Hope helped me with the food.
I fixed stromboli and filled it with all different kinds
of breakfast meats: bacon, ham, sausage.
Fried apples like Cracker Barrel's.
Delicious crepes made by my sister-in-law, Hope.
Sorry Hannah, I missed your yummy hash browns.
I was able to sew some summer dresses.
What a wonderful week of fellowship.
I feel blessed to be a part of this family.
