  1. Lucky you, going to MSQC! Jenny was the featured speaker at our state guild's Assembly Day. What a fireball!

    Love the medallion and I'm intriqued by the neutral triangles on the outside. Are they really gray or is the camera playing tricks? I love gray but have never though of looking for prints like those.
