Come see us on Facebook...

Hello everyone,

We have been so busy in the shop that the previous method of showing finished quilts and quilting has been moved to Facebook where we can upload images a lot easier than on the blog. So come see us at:
https://www.facebook.com/spruceitupquilting/

Every Sunday I upload photos of the week's quilting and some extra news. Keep up with these posts by liking our page.

You'll be glad you did... we'll be glad to see you there. Thank you for following us.

Toodles,

Lorette
