  28. Like most of the commenters, I do NOT know where the summer went. I missed not hopping though I was far from dawdling. Still have one more hop item to make but decided I was going to get caught up with the group--and of course, see who had been picked for creativity and wow factor. My scissors and rotary cutter can hold on, LOL.


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
