Celebrate! Good Stitches ::Winners::

Celebrate Good Stitches

Three cheers for good, and most specially for the quilty good happening through do. Good Stitches {a charity bee}!

I'm popping in today to announce the many winners for this year's Celebrate Good Stitches.  But, before I do, I extend my gratitude to every single member of do. Good Stitches, past and present.

You all really are worth celebrating!  What an honor and inspiration to be joined by so many willing and talented hands to do. Good.  I can tell you that this experience is something I'll never, ever forget.  I trust it's as or even more meaningful to many souls the world over who have been touched by our quilts made in love.
