    The cheesehead guy is a hoot! Brrr! Our temperature here in Alabama today is 70 and believe me, we thank the good Lord for it. I had to shiver, though, when I saw that picture. I also LOVE THE PACKERS! I know, I know, I’m supposed to love the New Orleans Saints, but it’s the Packers for me! Thanks, in advance, Lisa for the freebie patterns coming my way soon. Pam

    Oh, Buffalo is SO happy GB beat NE! Your game was almost more fun than watching Buffalo beat Cleveland! Oh, and thanks for a happy shopping day, too! Can’t wait for my purchases and freebies to arrive.

    Lisa, I just want to say thank you for the SBOW this year. I missed last year’s and was so pleased to do the Sunflower quilt. I have been amazed that I was able to keep up and I’m doing the borders. I say amazed because I can’t seem to get any of my BOMs finished each month, and they’re not nearly as detailed. There’s just something about this one:) Thank you again!!
