Very excited!

Julie and Becky said...

So good to know this! I belong to a Facebook group that has a number of members who follow you and wanted to comment here, but they couldn't get the words/prove you're not a robot form filled in right. I think it may be set too sensitive or something. For my own blog, I just have it set to approve all messages so I don't have people have to jump through the hoops, I do. Just sayin...

Kathy Barrick said...

Thank you all for your wonderful comments! You have warmed my heart and made me feel very welcomed back into the world of stitching!!

For those of you having trouble posting a comment, I just changed my settings, which should make life much easier.
