Merry Christmas to all!

Santa stopped by our booth at Quilt Festival in Houston when retired firefighter Steve Bradford asked me to autograph one of my books for him. When I showed the photo at the office, Patti said, "Wow! Santa got a picture with the real Marti!" LOL

Wishing you all a happy, healthy new year, filled with lots of fun sewing and quilting experiences. I'll be back with two more template conversion charts for the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sew Along on January 4!
