12 wishes for Quilters

12 days of Christmas is not my favorite Christmas song, maybe I've heard it too many times but it has undertones of 100 bottles of beer on the wall on an elementary school bus to me. But wishing and giving 12 distinct gifts to show appreciation? I am in favor of that and who better to wish things for than my fellow quilters? Here's my version of that holiday standard -

    My passions are quilting and sewing. Add to that French, Spanish, books, swimming, travels, new restaurants, biking and chocolate and you have me. All of these are best shared with family and friends. Except for chocolate, I prefer not to share that.
