Happy Leap Day, Feb 29, 2016

Hello and WELCOME to the many new subscribers.  

It is spring and time to come out of winter hibernation, I wish. With lots of updating of  social media and brand new ideas for classes and products, there has been little rest for me this winter. My website Home Page has a new look and I added a Professional Page on Facebook which links to my SHOP! to download quilting designs anywhere in the world, 24/7!

Please be patient with me as all of these tasks have left little time for blogging, so I am putting my blog on hiatus for a little while. But, best of all, I have been distracted with my baby granddaughter living only 2.5 hours away for just this year. I hope you will understand that that opportunity will end when they return to TX, so I am taking all I can get of her now.
