HEY -- THIS IS MY SISTER DEBORAH -- during our December visit to NEW YORK CITY!! She's standing in front of one of those wonderful decorated department store windows...I'm telling ya -- if you've NEVER been to New York City -- YOU MUST GO. Wouldn't it be awesome if one of my bloggers WON THE DESIGN CONTEST??
Go to their website and find out all the details!! Then keep me posted!!
I love this picture of Deborah. She just got back from a sewing retreat in New Hampshire! AND she promised me PICTURES...apparently, they had a little too much fun....but I only asked for pictures about the SEWING part of their activities...
