Good morning dearest Dzintra! Are you still enjoying the warmth from your new fireplace? Any stitching going on, or a cast party? Our summer is still in full swing, but soon SCHOOL will be ringing the bell, calling me inside to French class!

Thank you dear one, for coming to visit. HUGS...Anita

Beautiful fabric Dzintra. I'm taking part in a pouch swap this month and I've go to get my sewing machine out. Better get to it. I might check out that tutorial.
