Jigsaw Weather

It is that time of year when we start thinking about family activities indoors – and we have just the answer! Puzzles!

This 1,000 piece quilt puzzle is one way of “piecing” a quilt – or several – in an evening!

Or take a ride in the country when they are airing the quilts:

Or reproduce the sewing room of your dreams….
