show & tell on the Peninsula
It's been awhile, but I finally remembered to take my camera when my friend Glenys & I had our weekly catchup. She has been sewing on & off over the past few months, but like most of us, it's all in-between family & friends, and other life stuff. Here's what's been happening in her sewing room.
