Cheryl’s giveaway is below

Cheryl has been part of this row along since the very beginning four years ago. She doesn’t have a blog and has been hosted on the other various designers blogs during those years. This year I’ve chosen to feature her on my blog. Chery runs an EQ group on Facebook.. She keeps things short and sweet, so here goes with her words and her pattern… 

I would like to take a moment to thank Marian Pena for all the time and support she has taken in putting this year’s Row Along together, as well as hosting my pattern. Thank you also to Northcott Fabrics for being our sponsor and for the beautiful fabric they produce.

My favorite place is sitting and watching all my flying friends. I could sit and watch them for hours as I marvel at how they just seem to flit from here and there, with not a care in the world. They remind me to stop throughout my day, take a breath and just be “in the moment”.
