Jan. 2012-Wild Rice Chicken Soup,Whole Wheat Bread,Maple Butter Syrup

We have started the year off great with the following quilts from our show and tell. We also made the decision to have our Pizza Box Exchange quilts completed by July. That will be a fun month for our show and tell. We'll hang them all on a fence or clothesline and take a panoramic shot!
Thank you Sherry for hosting. Your home and food were warm and wonderful!
