Finally - a Finished project!
I don't mind alliteration either, by the way. This quilt, (I know this isn't knitting!) has been in the works for almost a year. The Evergreen Quilt Guild has a tradition of collecting blocks and giving them to out-going Presidents when they finish their tw...

November Has Been Quite a Month
Winter arrived early here this year; we really never had much of a Fall, and there wasn't any Indian Summer either. So there is snow on the ground now, and on my car as well, because the garage door broke. I know. You don't really want to read about my tria...
