We will put the photos on the blog and let readers vote for their favorite. The winner will be announced on Jan. 30.

  1. That sounds like fun. I'm just finishing up two quilts I pieced when Jane first put her LeMoyne and Broken Star quilts on her blog. I looked it up and it was over 4 years ago!

  2. I already know that the government is supposed to have evidence of a crime BEFORE indictment or arrest.
    They are not supposed to count on squeezing a defendant that pled guilty into making some shit up against another defendant,
    which would be the result of this

    chick lit
    romance novels

  3. Have I missed the March challenge?
