  1. I am so thankful for your blogspot! I look back often to see what you are up to. I esp love the 3-d butterfly (wonder what that would be like as a dishcloth?? maybe w/wing placement changed? just guessing) and this Pineapple Blossom cloth is wunderbar!! Linda

  2. I just finished the first 4 months, I kept redoing the squares over and over because I would not like the colors I used. Finally decided on light blue and posted the first 4 on my blog....I love these squares so much, cant' wait to see October, and will finally be caught up by then. LOL
