    HAPPY NEW YEAR to you too! Did not quite finish my end of year “to do” list. Believe it or not I do have RRCB on the Gammill (finally). On a sadder note we lost ‘Gigi’ this past Wednesday. Back to the paying job tomorrow. DH has already started wifey withdrawal.

      Well, you’re starting the year off right with a quilt on the Gammill. You will plow through it in no time. I’m so sorry to hear about Gigi, I know how much she was loved and I’m sure there is an empty place in your heart. She will be dearly missed.
