  10. Congratulations on the upcoming Quilt Exhibit! This will be fun once it's all arranged and the day comes. Still a lot of snow there, wow. I thought I sent spring your way, but it must be stuck somewhere? I like the idea of passing along patterns and books once we finish up with them. What else will we do with them? Best to share. But you already know all about that. VBG :-D Oh! I like Viktor's cute Easter card project! Bye for now, Stina!
