    Wow. I've been so darn busy minding my own business that I missed the fuss. Just a troll, and the tracks will fade if you don't feed it. I'm far along in Sophie's quilt now, once around the edge to finish of the missed bits and then it's bind and ship. I got too far behind in Christmas goods and overshot her birthday a bit. This

    Agnes I think I said before the Window quilt is awesome, but looking again it deserves a repeat. That quilt is aweswome. All quilts and stories posted are excellent. I could never tire of mouse stories. Gini the story of my next Amish phase. From watching reruns of Amish Mafia I'm getting fascinated by the colors and by the simple designs. Piecing

    Sunday Report: I'm quilting my fingers off on Sophie's Quilt. Not sure I will make the deadline but trying. I did take a few minutes out to help cook a spare-turkey Thanksgiving repeat feast on Saturday.
