Something about keeping the same word seems full of continuity however, I've been looking for my word all year, not really finding it.

I can see it now – Word

I can see it now. I woke up this morning with a solid plan for a quilt that I need to finish. There is a total fabric change. From a Daiwabo to Radiance.
