    p.s. ---including these and client quilts, I quilted 101 items on my long-arm, 3 on my domestic and pieced a few unquilted blankets and blocks for charity too! Not bad for a slow start given the move to Grand Coulee that started in January of this year and finished up in March.

    Hoping my shoulder will start cooperating in the new year so I can get back to a balanced schedule of productivity!

    Happy New Year everyone!!
