Winter IS Coming… And so are the holidays!

It’s inevitable so don’t shoot the messenger here… at least it’s not Christmas in July, I did wait till August! :)  I wanted to thank everyone for their nice emails and comments on my tutorials ~ it’s great to get feedback and hear from fellow quilters!

  1. What a great design! Love the cute little flying geese. Have fun at the festival.
    PS- I am a big fan of GOT too! I did not like this last season as much, straying from the books more and more now.
