Sometimes in life we have to take big leaps of faith and that's what we did buying in Vernon after only one previous visit. I always trust my intuition and make big decisions based on a combo of logic and feeling.

I just completed a small braided rug for Maddie's desk area - made from Ava's old pants and shirts. (As Ava's clothes become too small I store them for Maddie but I had put aside items that weren't mendable or that were paint covered to use for sewing projects.)
