Happy Holidays

To all my dear friends and fellow MWKers -

May you all have many Blessings through this Holiday Season and the coming New Year.

I made probably the worst mistake you could make when making something like this... I did not make a swatch. I paid for it! Next time. It still came out fine. Lesson learned.
