  1. You are indeed enjoying life! Loved seeing your and Sheila's families together! And boy, was I jealous when I saw your sewing day at Cheryl's!!! What a neat "sewing retreat"!Your Yankee Doodle quilt turned out so nice. It reminds me of Hidden Wells. And I love the kaleidoscope quilts, especially with the black stripping.
    Love you, sis!

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having
    side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

  4. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. However just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts
    more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images
    and clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Fantastic blog!
