Today at work we found out that one of our co-worker passed away on Saturday. Ronda was fighting cancer. She was had a very tough year and a half.

I went to the quilt store to pick up my buck a block. Mary the quilt store owner tells me that I won a prize. That's 2 shophops in Oct. Two different prizes. This time I got a fat qaurter bundle that has 20 fat qaurters. They are in different shades of purple. Now I have to figure out what to do with them. They are so pretty. Just don't tell my friend Missy Sheryl. Julie Ann

Boy let me tell you. I love it!! I put this big frame in my bedroom. So now I can tell my kids that I m going to my… Continue
