Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

 February 2023

It is the favored month of chocolate-giving (one of my favorite things)!  I used to try to "pick just one" and make the box last longer, but I've let that go.  It's ok to eat more than one (or most of the box, if the day warrants it), and it is also ok to choose more than one fabric (even if you only need one).  I have heard it said that if something doesn't bring you joy, you should get rid of it.  Well, the reverse of that is also a good life motto: if it brings you joy, you should get/eat more of it.  So I hope that your month is filled with chocolate, fabric, sewing, and most importantly LOVE!  Have a wonderful February!

  Thank you again for all of your support!
