WIP Wednesday – Independence Day Edition

After last week’s ADD, I needed to sit down, look at my lists and really prioritize.  When I compared my to do list with my calendar, I realized that I only had two weekends before the baby shower for my friends A&J, so their quilt had to be at the top of my list. After […]
