2019 Final Countdown Task Three

Well! That flew by, didn’t it? Another year — gone in a flash. We’re at the threshold of a new decade even, so that means it’s time to count down the final few days of 2019. I feel like I made better progress this past year than I did the year before, but how is […]

The Happenstance Quilts Reveal

Back in February, I told you about my guild’s current mystery project we had going on, The Happenstance Quilts. I also showed you two options I had for doing mine.
