Year End – 2018

It is hard to believe that 2018 is coming to an end. This weekend Christmas decorations will be taken down and packed away until next December. Can you even believe that I’ve started organizing/gathering information for working on our Federal/State Income Taxes??

Camelia’s 2018 Quilt Retreat – My 2nd top finished in two days!

I thought I’d just add some notes about the past year.

1950 Centennial Featherweight is a great machine to take to Retreats – It has a nice straight stitch.

I haven’t blogged as much as I would have liked, but have made notes of a few blog facts.
