  4. sorry

  5. I have a new blog in which I write about my retirement dream come true: I've opened a quilt shop! In the past five weeks of the blog, I've had almost five hundred visitors, some from countries around the world, like the UK (London, Essex, Wales) India, Ukraine, Poland and Canada, as well as many of the United States. We're busy stocking the shop these recent months, and I'm also busy writing book two in my new "Mysteries in the Quilter's Quarters" series. But I look forward to joining your book club here at Starwood Quilter, and invite you to come and follow me: is the link. Happy sewing!


I love hearing from readers. Your comments make my day!
