Pin It Weekly # 140

I recently discovered a linky party through Linda's blog, The Road to Oklahoma. Linda wrote, "Val at Val's Quilting Studio has a weekly linky party called Tuesday Archives, a linky party featuring your old, archived quilting or sewing posts." She goes on to tell about how she found out about the party and the benefits of reviewing your old posts. I have to agree with her, so guess what I did.  

I shared Butterfly Kisses on Tuesday Archives at Val's Quilting Studio, of course. I made this one about five years ago. It's posted on my blog Quilts page here and on my Pinterest "Trunk Show" board here.
