Red Feather Project

March has been a very busy month for me and I have only just had the time to really sit down and catch up on so many things. I realize that with the changing of seasons comes the changing of my schedule. I am the most productive in the cool of Fall and the cold […]

Goals

February’s One Monthly Goal

I missed the deadline last month to get in on The One Monthly Goal with Elm Street Quilts: so I made sure that I marked the date down for this month. I am hoping that this will help keep me organized and on task. I have decided that is one of my personal goals this […]
