    What A Day

    My sister, a friend of ours and I were able to go on a little fabric shopping spree yesterday.  It, of course, was great fun.  We talked, we laughed, we shared and I found the perfect fabric to use on the aviation quilts I am making.  There are a bunch of different styles of airplanes "flying" o...
