  19. Hi Maria,
    Happy New Year! I do read your blog, but haven't left many comments - sorry! I don't know if you follow the PNG Quilts blog ( I created for the quilts donated for the PNG babies, but just want you to know that your four quilts are now over there with the others, and will be distributed to the native families within the next few weeks. My cousin plans to photograph each quilt with its new owner, and I'll be publishing them on my blog as I get them.


Thank you for visiting and leaving your lovely comment.
