    Just added my link. Thanks to the challenge I have a Halloween quilt in my house! Love to browse all the projects and books listed.

    Thanks. I added my link. I’m glad for the challenge. I have quite a few craft books and I rarely sew / make something from them. Why? I don’t know.

    I rushed to get something done, but I’m too late as well! That’s OK, crossed something off my craft book to do list!
