My plan for the new year is to learn more about quilting, share more about what I learn with you. I hope to grow the business and hope that you come along for the ride.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
"This poem was written by Award winning poet Glenda J Bowling following the untimely death of her husband in the 70s. She was never a quilter, but captured the textures of life through the words stitched together in this poem.
Permission given to publish this in my Quilter's Pantry blog by her niece, Cathy Pierce"
