Good Morning, I love your Watercolor and stitching. Your machine quilting is wonderful. Do you used watercolor paints on the fabric to get this look??? Hugs Judy

"Wonderful!' was the first thought that came to my mind!! Especially love the bird's spirally wing and the whoosh of waves crashing, depicted by a few carefully placed lines of stitching. Beautiful pictures, Cat!

Hi Cat! Love the little quilts, they're just wonderful. Well I had my vitamin D levels checked and it was low. The minimum percentage is 30 and mine were at 21! This might also account for some of the muscle weakness and extreme tiredness I felt. I just wanted to thank you so much, as my doctor never would have went there if I hadn't asked her to check it out. Of course, I wouldn't have know if you hadn't told me. Hopefully this will prevent a few other health problems from happening too since it was caught. A very big hug to you!!!

Beautiful as always - the light house took me to another place. Thank you.

Right now Cat, I'm on 5000 IU. In two months I'll have it rechecked.
