Hello swet lady. Thanks for the info on the heart challenge site. I love your recent fabric heart posted on there. It is sooo pretty. Sounds like you have your hands full with raising another set of children. You are an angel. It is nice to meet you. I am now a follower of your blog, so expect to see me from time to time.
