Sunday Stitchers first meeting for 2020

Hard to imagine another year has past really.....

Unfortunately nothing to show for me this time.....
there hasn't been very much sewing going on here so far this year but there is plenty of time to catch up....

This all has to go.....



It is very liberating to have a big clean out....
