I want to wish a wonderfully Happy Birthday to Lynn.  We haven't actually met yet but Lynn and I have collaborated on lots of quilts and quite frankly I would not be able to personalise anywhere near as many quilts as I do without her help.  Tomorrow Lynn is coming to my home and together we get to give a quilt to a recipient in person which is pretty special in itself.  Looking forward to meeting you Lynn.  Hope you have had a lovely day today!

Till next time.....................keep spreading the word and happy stitching!  JMxx
