    I like a few of the patterns but not enough to buy her book. We’ll talk more Wed.

    FYI – at Stitch in Suzanne said she would teach some of us how to make her pillow bag Wed. at the Senior Center. We’ll see if she remembers. Remind me to tell you about the “Black Hole.”

    Thanks for giving us 6 months until Christmas–but in reality it is only 5 months! I guess that I had better get stitching!! Thanks for all the great patterns for Christmas time–I know that I will be making some as gifts.
