today i am still using up my scraps and that little goose is a play toy in my children's room. but, i am still fabric shopping and sewing with the joy of a 9 year old little girl. these days i especially love continuing the tradition of the women quilters in my family by piecing and stitching fabric into beautiful, unique pieces. i hope you find something you love - thanks for stopping by!
