Happy New Year!

Hello Dear Friends...

It is that time of year again, when we can look back over 2011 and count our blessings of the past 12 months.  A loving family, dear friends, good health and a truly joyous year are some of the things that I am grateful for!

I am also grateful for kind people like Lorry Kirschener, of Indiana, who share their incredible talents with others in such a caring and generous way!  Lorry used "Coming Home" panels to create this beautiful quilt in memory of Donna Thacker.

It was given to Donna's daughter and, I'm told,
will be cherished always.

For me, seeing my fabric designs used in such special ways,
is a blessing that I am continually grateful for and
never take for granted.

Another truly inspiring quilt, made with a past fall fabric
"Nature's Harvest" is shared below.  These two ladies
are friends from 
"In Stitches" Quilt Shop in Rushville, Indiana.
Talk about creative!!

Thank you all for your support and encouragement throughout
the year!

Be sure to stop by the first of next week, to see
"Grow With Me."
It is a toddler line that my two daughters,
Arrin and Katie, designed with me,
available in stores in January 2012.
Very, very cute! and very, very
special to all three of us!

Happy New Year to everyone!
