"I just finished putting the binding on my quilt!  Yeah!!  So I'm going to start off with 8 yards out, 0 in.  However, when we go on vacation I'm sure I'll make all that up! "

"Hello All.  I am in again for 25 yards.  This year I have a list going of all my started-but-never-saw-the-end quilts (already on the second page, sigh) and really hope to get at least a few done!  This will help me.  Thank you,…"

"Yes, Ginny, I agree.  There were a couple of times during the year when I knew a store was having a great sale or going out of business but I stayed away.  Needed to get my fabric under control.  Thanks Beth for doing this."

Hi Jan, I went to Trix grade school, Gabriel Richard Jr high and Osborn High School. It's fun to meet up with someone who knows some of the same history.

Jan, what Schools did you attend? Meeting up would be so cool.

Hi Jan, I'm not sure where Fowlerville is. I grew up in Detroit. I have a brother who lives in Holly and a brother and sister in Macomb. Michigan is a beautiful state. I have a cousin in Stevenville and an aunt in Benton Harbor. Maybe we will cross paths some day.

Thanks, Jan.  I post a lot of pictures of my work as I sew along.  You can also keep up with Aura and my other projects on my blog, Curlicue Creations.
