Greg said...

Now you know why they call it labor day...I think a more fitting name would be laborless day. But then again can you really call quilting labor?

Oh Rachel, you have done enough work for both of us - which is great because I didn't sew a stitch. Ann :)

Stacey said...

those look fab!! I sure wish I could get some uninterrupted sewing in, i thought when school started and three were gone i'd get some sewing done, but the baby disagrees, he has other plans i guess, kinda crappy

Jackie said...

Lots of labor going on there, but the kind that doesn't hurt so much! Really great stuff, Rachel!

SHEESH !!! You got more done this past weekend than I've gotten done in the past year !!! How do you do it !?!?!! When my kids were little I pretty much just slogged through my days ... between work and kid stuff, I just walked by my dust covered sewing machine sitting there looking all sad and neglected .... and now that my kids are teenagers/young men, I'm still not getting at the sewing like I dream of ......(sigh) oh well!!!
