Isn't this latest baby quilt fabulous? I think it's one of her best works, myself. Love the colors and the prints. Love the precision straight pieces of fabric, and the incredible workmanship. You can see all the love that went... Continue reading

Thanks Robin, I AM enjoying it! in fact, I just bought a hood ornament for it last weekend, and cant wait for summer to get here for all of the car shows! Get your hubbs looking on craigslist. They pop up on there all the time..the trick is finding the one with the bells and whistles YOU are looking for, at the PRICE you want. My guy is a great wheeler-dealer and worked a super deal for me. Let me know when you find your dream truck! Tracey
I couldnt agree more, Lisa! Thank YOU for taking time to post a comment and for reading my blog. I treasure all of my readers so very much!
Oh, Gayla, thank you so much for your loyalty to my blog...checking in when I have gone long lengths between posts, and taking the time to comment! I feel like I know you, and so many others, out here in blog-land! I consider us all friends.
Thank you Jeni, and yes, I DO think I know (And appreciate!) that I have some very incredible people reading my blog and I feel very blessed, indeed. Thanks so much for taking the time to post a comment!
