Perfect Tina β€οΈπŸ‘ Thanks for joining me.

TERESA - put me down for Greek Cross. I'll take this project camping with me along with my UGRR swap blocks. My luck it will be all sunny and I'll be outside with no time to sew and I'll come home with sewing things to still be done! :lol: 8-)

Teresa, we are only going camping for eight nights on the Washington coast. If you think you might be there camping too, I’ll keep my eyes peeled for you!
