  1. I have been away from the world of blogs for a while as I don’t have internet at home. I finally had some time to come back, and once again you have blown me away with your work. It is incredible. I have been sending the URL for Pin Tangle to my friends telling them how inspirational this site is.

    I have been thinking of doing a sampler for years, a real sampler, and you have inspired me with your band sampler. I have dug through my stash, decided on a width and started stitching. I cannot wait to expand my repertoire of stitches.

    Many thinks for sharing your wonderful work and sharing your knowledge with us.
