Hello Quilters!!!
It's about time I get back to work, don't you think?  (I really have been working, but on a bit of a limited basis!)  You'd be surprised at how much work is going on around here behind the scenes.  Just to make a few patterns and a few fabrics takes me a lot of work!

Today I have been editing and proof-reading a pattern that will come out in a book next spring.

More about that later.

The big news of the day is that the Jaftex Blog Hop has begun!!  Jaftex is the parent company for Henry Glass Fabrics.  Their group also includes other fabric companies like Blank Quilting and Studio E.  We are all celebrating all month long because they have been in business for 85 years!

 Here is the schedule for the HOP.  Visit each blog on the day the designer posts.  Then you can enter each day to win.  There are terrific prizes--of course fabric, and even a sewing machine!  The link by each designer in the list is active, so just use this list as a guide each day to the blog you need to see.
