There are 2 pages of beautiful free PDF quilt patterns available at this internet link currently noting that this article is being written by me on Jan. 13, 2010

These will be updated soon, ie. some will be replaced; so now is a good time to download any or all you'd like to have.

I don't quilt but I still enjoy looking at pictures of quilts. It brings back memories of my Mother who was a quilter 30+ years ago. The quilt ACEO you see pictured was created by me using the end of a box set known as Quilter's Delight. This small art is available for sale at Glenna's Garden

Etsy: How did it get started? Meet Rob Kalin

"Meet Rob Kalin, the man behind" is a fascinating must read article from Readers Digest magazine, in the Dec. 09 / Jan. 10 issue.

As an Etsy shop owner that operates Glenna's Garden at it was really great to see how Etsy started four years ago,(now as I am writing this article dated today which is Jan. 12, 2010) and then many other interesting facts are presented too, such as what does the word Etsy mean. Read the article to find out. Visit Glenna's Garden for Handmade in NH The duckling picture is a sneak peek from Glenna's Garden for Spring 2010. Enjoy!
