Getting into a Routine from Quilts....etc.

I am finding that the Rose Garden blocks get easy with each one – the trick is getting into a routine with it I think.  I still can’t sit long enough to finish one in a day but if I finish one every two days I’m satisfied.  All of my pieces are divided into trays […]
