  1. How awesome! And I love that photograph and angle of the Aurifil color card - very clever.

  2. Great prizes. I have been running all over town today doing stupid errands, then I went to the 93 year oldsters to deliver my dad's favorite Flax seed meal (no he is not a health food nut but I really do not know... perhaps ocd and can't give it up) So now I am freshly home and I will get my fabrics lined up fancy and add them to the FB group and uh, are you also doing a flikr group?
    I will put them on the bookface.
    Love, Rosemary

  3. Those are wonderful prizes. I don't do either fb or instagram, so I'll follow along on the outside.


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
