  20. I am a follower of your SewFantastic blog. I went to look at Vibrant Trains and was very impressed. (I also would like to extend my sympathies to her on the loss of her father...saw it mentioned there.) As for a design on my train...it would have to be something like little quilt blocks...and lots of green...that's my favorite color in quilts. Oh, yes....I will blog about the 12 Days of Christmas and put a link to your Day 1 post about it on my blog TOMORROW morning.
