Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

Would this be the wrong time and place to offer an endorsement for the Montevideo Mercado del Puerto parilla?

Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

Hello Forum,  It has been very refreshing to be away from cyberspace, but I have been thinking about you folks and lurking a little sometimes... Aside from daily work and enjoying spring landscapes, I have indeed continued with needle arts; some embroidery, quilting, and knitting. Here is the beginn...
