A HUGE thanks to the Quietfire Design Team and Alumni and our Created byhand Challenge Shephardess for their beautiful creations and enthusiasm!  They have really enjoyed your comments.  We've learned a lot this week and I hope you have, too! A round of applause for them! Here is the list of their blogs once again. Visit anytime, they'd be delighted to hear from you.
