I just finished fusing all my critters for the Forest Panel. I LOVE appliqué, and tiny pieces (like noses and pink inner ears) challenge and delight me!
Anyway, I can’t recall when I’ve had so much fun, watching these funny little dancing critters come to life! Finding fabrics in my stash has been rewarding, too. 
Your patterns and directions have been wonderful, and I anxiously await constructing and machine appliquéing all.
My guild has offered a unique challenge to go along with our spring quilt show. Since the show’s theme is “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” those interested paid $4.oo to pick randomly a bag with the challenge fabric, all rules and directions, and the name of an actual rose. 
Mine is “Moondance Floribunda.” I immediately thought of these fun-loving, dancing critters and Van Morrison’s song “Moondance.” I may actually make little white rose “leis" for the critters to wear as they dance in the moonlight. The jury’s still out on that.
Thank you and thank you again for creating these little guys. What a joy it has been!

I just want to tell you what a satisfied customer I am. I ordered on Saturday and I already have the pattern. I very much appreciate that you don't have crazy shipping and handling charges. I am the president of our community's non-profit quilting group and I plan to tell them all about my good experience with a local company. We make beautiful quilts to donate to Santa Anonymous, fire victims, homeless shelters, foster children, etc.  Finding reasonably priced patterns and good service is FABULOUS!!!!

Thank you,
Lora O'Hern
