  67. Happy, Happy Birthday Donna. I absolutely adore your style of work. Doesn't matter if it is a project bag, quilt, NCW, or a pin cushion, I can always recognize your work. It is amazing, the quality, the talent you possess. You are a true expression of what fabric, needle and threads are all about. You look radiant on your birthday. I am looking forward to 2016 and see what gorgeous creations you come up with. Your blog is certainly an inspiration along with "Tag". Again, Happy, Happy Birthday to a wonderful friend. Oh and yes, I would love to be entered in your Give-Away, I can't imagine carrying an NCW around that Donna created.

  73. Happy New Year Tag, It's 00.26am here in the UK, and we've just watched a fantastic firework display from London on TV. Outside there were a few sputters and bangs, but nothing to write home about. Now Tag, listen carefully, I love your Tuesday blogs, they bring sunshine into my week, so would you please thank your Mum and Handsome, and the Black Dog, for giving you such a lively life. I would love to win one of your Mum's wallets, but it's a very long shot. Never mind. your English Auntie will always love you. Blessings to you and your family and a very Happy 2016 to you all.
