  6. Hi John'aLee! :-)

    How exciting!!! I have visited Stash Manicure ane left a comment - your giveaway is truly wonderful! When I started on my designing journey I thought there was something 'wrong' with me for re-working my designs so much... it's reassuring to know that this is all part and parcel of the process! :-)

    Thank you for your generosity sweetheart!

    Hugs! Vikki xoxo :-)

    ReplyDelete
  105. Well, I'm back from Stash Manicure so Hello again! This is such a beautiful quilt. I told you on SM that due to some surgeries I've been limited to hand work for months but I love doing it. I especially love to sit out by my hummingbird feeders in the evening and stitch while I enjoy my hubby's company and the hummers zipping around. It will be so nice when I can finally work at my sewing machine again to put the blocks I have been working on together, but in the meantime, I just keep trying to find beautiful projects to work on. Thank you so much for your generosity in giving us a chance to have this treasure. Hugs...

    I also wanted to ask where in Utah your shop used to be. I live in Northern Utah.
