Stitching at the Laundromat

Today's stitching was a little different as we changed the location to....
The new local laundromat.  Sandi and I have 3 raggy edge quilts between us that needed washing and drying and raggy edge defining!!! We have a new laundromat in town and decided to "meet" and stitch there while sending our quilts 'round and 'round!!
I've discovered we can have fun ANYWHERE!!!
Can you see the reflection of Sandi in the dryer? Yep - taking a photo too! Lots of laughing as usual! 
So from this........
To this...... Three lovely, fluffy, raggy edged quilts ready to snuggle under!!! 
Of course the day also included some retail therapy in another new shop that has opened here (some Christmas goodies, French "had to have" goodies, etc etc) AND we had lunch at the Coffee Club!
Early finish today as we had severe weather and storm warnings. 
We ended up with a great downpour, but unfortunately not enough rain!!!! Better than nothing though - and no severe storm or hail or damage. 
Another fun day and only a little bit of stitching!!! But my quilt is now well and truly finished!!!! 
Hope you have had a great Tuesday too!!!

Did Norreen need to wash her handbag? You girls are having the best time lately.

The quilts look great Teresa, were they easy to make? Good news you didn't get the severe storms they were forecasting, I've been on the lookout down here, they usually hit just as I'm leaving work...

What a great idea to take them to the laundromat, and so much more fun with a friend. Please send us some of the rain.

what a lovely way to fluff up your quilts....
more storms around I see... take care. I hope we all get a bit of rain but leave off the damage...

You girls are a definitely fun dates. Love your quilts. I was looking forward to our expected downpour but was a little bit of a fizzer here.

Love how you girls can have a cracker time even at the laundromat, but you were doing crafting laundry not drudgery laundry!

Ooh, I want one of those quilts! What a great idea to meet at the Laundromat and make it a girls' day out!

I wondered if you would get much rain - the radar looked pretty awesome but it was all a bit of a fizzle in the city.
Smart idea to leave all the fluff in the laundromat! ( and especially since water is short)
