Snow makes for CUTE PHOTOS

Last year for Christmas; I received a wonderful and thoughtful gift….a Canon Rebel camera. I love it. I’m still learning to use it, for Christmas THIS year Santa brought a super cool zoom lens…(which I also have to learn how to use.)

The King Size quilt nearly killed me. It certainly finished off my old machine. BUT … there was nothing more warm & fuzzy than opening my email inbox on the 26th and reading thank yous from recipients of my quilts, and seeing the faces of the folks that I was with that day who got quilts. And other projects. Laugh.…
