I have been feeling down a little lately, not working , gaining weight and a few other things now with Christmas coming I get more homesick then ever. I went shopping yesterday and found a few supplies, beads and three books. I enjoy small designs I can cross stitch onto the CQ blocks and this book is just perfect for it . The other book is also what I was just looking for, now trying to see which one I will use first! So when I told my wonderful hubby about the 2014 Retreat in Kansas City for the Crazy quilting group I`m a member of online he just said go I will pay for it, I cant wait to meet all the Ladies!
