Farewell 2009!

"Sewing fills my days,
not to mention the living room,
the bedroom, and every closet!"
Words more true could not be spoken!




2009 has been a wonderful and creative year and I am looking forward to 2010.  Thank you again to everyone who has stopped by to read my blog thereby encouraging and inspiring me to continue to journal and share my quilting adventures. 

Enjoy your New Year's Eve!
