May 1st came and went.
There was no AYOS parade.
I know it felt so wrong to me...
and it might have felt wrong to a lot of you also!
After Carrie moved on to work for Moda...

those patterns with.
That's good news, right?
In the meantime... I have a few ideas.
One of them is to go back to my
Block of the Month Rehab.
It was a monthly check in kind of thing that was on the same
format as our Schnibbles parade.
I have a lot of BOM's to catch up with still...
and that includes Farm Girl Vintage blocks for
Farm Girl Friday's!
I wanted to go back this week and reminisce over some of our
AYOS blogger's and look at the "photo album" of our
Today I would like to share this one with you...
She was one of the first bloggers I followed and one of our original
group members. Check out the link to see her quilts from
2008. I am still in awe of her talent.
I will share another link tomorrow...
and some more newsie news!
