Brazilian Embroidery Day

Today I was up and running. We walked 2.8 miles today.

Arrived at the meeting and there were 8 members there already. It was awesome! We talked about ribbons that we got.

The rest of the week is mine, till Friday. I'm going to try and get some quilting done, if not get it to the point I can take it off the frame.

Something just came up and I have to finish this now. I'll be back tomorrow, Happy Quilting!
