I've been blogging for nearly two months now. It's been a great experience - I have started a quilt journal and have 'met' quilters around the world - my two reasons for starting. That second idea ('meeting') became much more real today. I complimented Nadine's hexagon tote bag a while back. Turns out she's also a foreign language teacher! She offered to send the pattern. I wrote back that I'd need to learn how to English paper piece hexagons first! She said she'd send me info on that, too.
This is what I found in my mailbox this evening! Not only did Nadine include plenty of examples and pages of instructions, but she sent me a little hedgehog button and pincushion!! Unbelievable. Thanks, Nadine!
