  11. My mistake? Not a new blog? I am pouring myself just one more cup of coffee so I can peruse your archived posts. I was so excited to comment I messed up. I meant to say “your beautiful ‘imaginings'” (still looks funny). Guess I should have had that second cup of coffee first!! I’m just loving that needle keeper! Have a great day, karen (kaholly )

    Just finished my coffee (and chocolate) while looking at your beautiful site. I found you at Quilt Fabric Delights and am so glad that I did. Your new pattern is beautiful and the ‘dragon fly’ is my favourite. The effects in your cornflower are incredible. I still have so much to look at on your site, I had better keep reading. Congratulations to you and may you come up with many more wonderful patterns. Thank you for the opportunity to win one of your patterns.
