  1. Hi Maria,
    Those thread catchers are the best thing out. You don't realize how handy they are until you make/get one yourself. The shoe bags are brilliant too. Looks like you got stacks done last night. Good for you.
    Cheers, Anita.

  3. A great start to the year! Love the new "block" in the header - that is my kind of landscape. I miss the salt air and beach views so much.
