GOOD MORNING BLOGG BUDDIES...I promise to be more more faithful to posting on this site.  It's been a wild ride these last few weeks, storms, heat, appliances  shorting out!  Not to mention no hot water for several days!  I've been busy with orders and working on new designs.  The cabin is 95% ready and hopefully the workmen will return.  Did I mention I need to add a new electrical circuit to my breaker box!  With the Dog Days of Summer upon us I'll be working on new patterns.  Keep on punchin.
