We've always thought she was famous!

The new Primitive Quilts and Projects is out and we are all excited. The Happy Birthday section has a photo of my mom and a small article about her too! We've always known how great she is and now you can too! She is shown above with my twin brother, Jim. Last night I was telling my on-going Wool Crazy class about it and they thought I should have mentioned how she still bakes for The Country Loft's special events. She is definitely a woman of many talents.

Jim and Mom are already raising a glass so let's all join them to toast Gert Peabody!

(Thanks for all the comments about the new look for the blog. We are looking into adding something else to the header, but so far that is all the set-up will allow....Andy is trying to figure a way around it.)

Timothy (my 6 year old grandson) is spending the day today and I think I hear him getting up, so I best close. Have fun today.......Jo Ann
