sorry i haven't written any blogs lately, but i was having the floor tiled in my studio and everything was piled up in my office. i couldn't even turn around in my chair. i will be having 'specials' just for 'bloggers' of the website http://www.appliquesquiltsandmore.com/ hopefully, at least once a week beginning oct. 1st. so check back often. don't forget to send photos of your finished projects.
