  6. It's great to see your blog growing again! The sewing you've been doing is wonderful, as usual. Thanks for the great tuts!!!! I DO appreciate your generosity in sharing. Wish it was possible for me to go to the retreat and meet all of you. Look forward to "Skyp"or whatever it is. Hopefully I'll figure it out by then - and y'all will be sharing your retreat with us. My BD is coming up also - on the 22nd. Hard to believe I'm the same age that I considered REAL OLD when I was younger. :-)

  11. Wow!! 45 ??You are getting very old. Someday you will be as old as me. Im glad everything turned out okay with things. I hated seeing you go thru that. I must say you are pretty funny when you are mad or tired. I love our conversations then. You have taught me so much from reading your blogs and just explaining things to me. When I grow up I hope I can quilt half as good as you do. Happy Birthday Friend!!
