On June 1st, The Quilted Purl passed the one year milestone. For me, the year has flown by and been one delightful day after another. My thanks to all who have supported me in this effort over the year, especially my husband Bob for his many visible and invisible assists. The well wishes and encouragement of family and friends, from the east coast to the west coast and right here in Georgetown, have meant so much to me. Every time a former colleague from my teaching days has dropped by to say hello and check out my new life, I have felt grateful to be blessed by such friends. And of course, I am grateful to all the customers who have made the trip upstairs to browse, get some ideas, chat, and maybe make a purchase. Not many people have the opportunity to spend the day as I do - quilting or knitting as the fancy strikes me, meeting interesting and pleasant people from all over the world, sharing ideas, and making new friends. I am fortunate, and I know it! Thank you, one and all.
