Word Play, Thanx to Tonya

Today is "International Tonya Ricucci Day"  because her book "Word Play" has been published TODAY by Martindale Press.

[I hope Santa knows where to find your book 'cause I've asked for it!]

Wow, your lib Am quilt came out great. And I love your "sing" too - great fabric choice. It's so much fun to see all the "wordy" quilts showing up to celebrate Tonya and her book.
