Join the Team: "Quilters Step It Up"

Join the team "Quilters Step It Up" and simply increase the number of steps you take each day for 2 weeks starting on Oct. 13. I started this team. 

You might want to use a fitness tracker or you might not; it doesn't matter. See FAQs.

I recently got a Fitbit Alta which counts my steps each day. It helps me stay motivated. (eBay was cheapest.) You might prefer to keep a log of minutes spent walking. This will be fun. 
Stay tuned.

Couture Fantasy Coat from Amber Studios!

Look at this floral fantasy coat from Barbara at Amber Studios! Isn't it stunning? 
She starts with an upcycled boiled wool sweater, makes it into a coat, and then it's loaded with the most exquisite handmade embellishments! I've seen Barbara's coats in person and they are over-the-top wonderful. She takes her customer's measurements, listens to their preferences, and then creates a coat of their dreams. They all have a feminine shape and lovely drape.
Feast your eyes in her shop, and view her sold items too. 
Not only is she a fabulous artist, but she's a sweet person too.
