My mom’s in town to visit for a few days, so posting will be limited, as I didn’t have a chance to get some posts ready ahead of time. However, the newsletter is just about ready to go out, look for it late tomorrow. Have a nice week/weekend!

Want some business cards?

After reading Alice’s comment, I remembered that I have a stack of Quilting Gallery business cards that I would like to get rid of, so I can order some new ones next month. If anyone would like some cards to distribute at quilt guild meetings or other such events, I’d be more than happy to […]
