Hello again Marilyn, and thank you for accepting my friendship request.  If you go to my page - just put your cursor on my butterfly picture [avatar], you then can scroll down to the area called profile information.  My blog should be there, and linked to this site, so that you can just click onto it.  I dabble in lots of things as you have probably seen.  It will be lovely to follow your work too.  I love crazy quilting/patchwork/embroidery, but don't do nearly enough of it.  I make the most awful mess in my work room when I'm doing it!!  Cheers.
