A Word from Jojodabom
Hey Ya’ll I am Katherine aka jojodabom! I am a designer, mom, and emergency room nurse. Even though I have only started publishing patterns I have been designing since I was 16 and honestly it is my happy place.
Gardening is one of my favorite pastimes, well other than stitching. And is one of the things I did with my late grandmother. We used to go out and buy all the flowers, plant them in the spring and she showed me how to clean them up and winterize them in the fall, a love, and a tradition I am now passing on to my Littles…. They of course love Zinnias because they bring all the butterflies and that is why they have inspired this square.
Ok enough story time back to the square and the wonderful make along it is apart of. This make along has a whole bunch of wonderful patterns!
