  1. I love and appreciate all the work you do for us. I don’t think that you can even come close to knowing how many lives you have changed with the knowledge that you pass along freely to us. I always stop to watch and save everything you do. I chuckled when I saw the fabric manipulation ‘cuz I had already scooped up all I could off the net about a year ago for insertion into some of my quilts as a quilt block ( think a heavy lusterous white cotton, for a ‘ touch & feel ‘ patch).

  2. Hi Karon, thank you for your kind words. I love fabric manipulations too. They add great interest to any sewing I think 🙂
