Happenings at Thread and Bolts

Grandma and Grandpa Wilson found a cute Purple Sewing machine for Syri's Christmas.
Here is Syri with her grandma, Lynn learning how to stitch a 1/4" seam.

Syri has been at her grandma's knee since she was born.
She is born to be a Quilter!

She knows how to press and how to hold her first quilt parts up just right.
                                        Grandma made her some Nightgowns after Christmas too.
Here's Syri's silly Mom and Grandma on New Year's Eve.
It was a Crazy PJ day.

The 1st Customer quilt has come off the Longarm for 2015.  
This is June's King Size D9P with Dragonflies quilted on it.
