Coming soon...........

Wanda S. Hanson Exuberant Color Pop-Up Shop Coming Soon

I have been working hard in the background getting ready for another pop-up shop that will be coming soon, but real life got in the way.  I'm headed for major surgery tomorrow morning so I will be away from the internet for a few days.  I'm sure you have questions, so do I, and I won't know the answers until a week or more after surgery so no details here today.  My daughter Vicki is an administrator on my blog too and will post a surprise for you while I'm away from the computer.  I probably won't answer any comments today.

If you have a spot on your prayer list for one more name, I would be so grateful to be included.


I have to show you how much the Impatiens have grown along my driveway where I had the bushes pulled out.







This is the rest of the view showing my 3 tomato plants and a couple Hostas in pots where the flowers ended.

JJM said...

Wanda ~ By now I pray you are on our way to recovery. Your beautiful daughter Vicki compiled a grand biography about you. And your 'journey' of your talents that lead you to being one of our great designing quilters. I can tell she knows about your history as well as you lived it. Vicki's interview was done with the professionalism that is surely inherited from her mom.

Thinking about you every day with love and prayers.
