Post Comment
I spent many a Columbus Day weekend with Cecilia at the Jiminy Peak Craft Fair. She was one of the reasons I always looked forward to that event. We got to share our stories about our dogs. She did such beautiful work with her sewing and I treasure the runners she made for my Thanksgiving table. She will be missed.
