If you’ve been paying attention, you probably noticed that I added the do. Good Stitches badge to my sidebar a couple of weeks ago. I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been chosen to join the NURTURE Circle as the quilter for June. NURTURE Circle is great. We quilt for My Very Own Blanket, a charity that gives quilts to kids …
