Some New Kits

20 Years!

Hide ‘n’ Seek Tea Towel

Six years ago, I was part of a fall blog hop along with a lot of other designers, and we each presented a block as part of the hop. My block was an appliqué block with a pumpkin and a kitty and a mouse, and I really had a lot of fun designing and making […]
