My grandson Will asked me to make him a pillow with a dragon on it. We gave him our old living room couch when he got his own apartment & he wanted a decorative pillow to put on it. I gave it to him yesterday & he was thrilled with it.…Continue
My grandson Mike loves the Chiefs so he was thrilled when they won the Super Bowl.

It was absolutely horrible to work with and I would certainly never use it in a quilt, but it worked okay for a pillow. The original price was $12.99 per yard, but they had it "on sale" for $9.99.

I want to wish everyone on QWU a very Merry Christmas & a happy & prosperous 2020! We had lots of snow last week & cold temps.

I'm hoping to spend Christmas in Las Vegas next year with my son & his family. Time will tell if that will happen.
