  2. Thank you for your kind words on my blog post. Blogger is not directing comments to my email ARRRGGHH! This calendar quilt is a real commitment in time and thought and searching for the right thing. Expensive also with all the silk ribbon etc. Beautiful photographs of flower you took.

      Thank you for stopping by Pam! And thank you for the inspiration!
