My first Christmas quilt finally hanging on the wall to enjoy . . .

  1. How lovely! Roz, I hope you and your dear family have a very blessed Christmas!

  2. Esther, I am just going back and checking on comments left that I failed to respond to at the time….regarding flowers: I don’t think that any are as beautiful and breathtaking as those found on the Hawaiian islands. I love the pink antheriums (sp?). They are just so special! Love to you this springtime of year! Roz
