Thanks! *Sniff*

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your comments and emails. They helped me through an extremely difficult week — it was a huge comfort to know that so many of you have my back! I am feeling about 95% human now and will be finishing off the Spring Quilt Market posts [...]
