    Wow! Patty Shines Here

    I am telling you Mom's and Grammie's (like Me!) this is a must for your sewing room. I have two adorable little ladies that live clear across the country from me in California. They require the sweetest, most adorable outfits made by ME and this book has them!!! Run, don't walk to your nearest B&N and get this book before every other Mom or Gram reads this...you will NOT be sorry. Patty..you are the BEST.
