Let's Bee Social #104

Happy to report that ALL of the blocks for both the twin and baby size Jungle Friends quilts are finished!

Sashing and borders are currently being added!


I want to thank you.... Thank you!!!

This is the official post marking two years of the Let's Bee Social linky party! This party would not be what it is today if not for you. Your willingness to share what you create. Your willingness to bee social and share kindness with everyone you visit. You are such a wonderful gift to me.... Sweeter than honey and more fragrant than flowering blooms!

This is also the 3rd Blogiversary of Sew Fresh Quilts....

My first post was written on December 24th of 2012. It was more of a New Year's resolution post than a quilting post, but I kept my promises to myself and then made another New Year's resolution type post the following year. There was a Let's Bee Social post made on December 24, 2014, but no New Year's resolution. Just simply a celebration much like this one here.

Three years of quilting/blogging has meant an accumulation of lots of stuff. Fabric of course. And many, many quilts. Three years worth of experience and knowledge. But best of all, three years has given me the opportunity to make so many, many friends. You are my friends and what I treasure above all else in this journey. Your friendship, love and support are what I am truly thankful for this Christmas. You are a gift that is greater than gold - or even fabric!

Having friends like you is what has kept me going through the last three years.
And what makes me look forward to the many years to come!
THANK YOU for being here for me!

NOW it's your turn for Show and Tell!!!
