I think I may have started this Gather your Sew-plies purse in 2012. This purse was made using this pattern (I call this Pattern #1), it is constructed differently than the pattern that was published in Quilting Arts Holiday 2014, (which I call Pattern #2).

Listening to quiet.

There are the physical concerns, feeling as if I haveContinue reading “Still Here, after all these years.”
