  1. Deanna, your quilts and projects this year were beautiful completions! You are very inspiring. My days are busy running around town playing with grandbabies, and now, taking care of my 94 year old daddy, and also my hubbs (luckily he can still manage on his own haha) I am going to try to make the effort to complete many projects this year. Of course, as usual with our types, the ideas are always coming in and we can’t resist to just get started.
    Thank you for all of your inspiration and encouragement

  2. That’s a lot of lovely quilts (I did like Miss Jenna’s quilt). I think it’s time to make notes for myself so that things do get finished and not sit around in baskets waiting for me to get a move on!
    You had an awesome 2017 – I wonder what you’ll get up to this year!

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
