final collage day 2

As an extra bonus tonight, I’m leaving you with one last collage.  Last night, after we returned to the motel, I headed down to the lobby to write the blog post.  What did Karen and Della do?  Go to bed?  Well, of course not.  They started on the next Stashbuster pattern!  Karen’s sewing machine really is her constant companion!

Oh!  I almost forgot!  I received a promotion today.  I am now the official CEO of this trip.  Yep, I’m the Carry Everything Out person.  Feel free to leave a comment with your congratulations!  Until tomorrow evening…
