  1. I have a two hour drive today & am looking forward to listening to your podcast as i drive. I always enjoy it. Thanks for podcasting(and the improved audio)!


  2. I look forward to your podcast every two weeks. I'm amazed at how productive you are with a young child and full- time job! You' re an inspiration! I've recently discovered the Marie Bostwick series and am eagerly awaiting my turn at the library for her latest. Another great quilty series is the Jennifet Chiaverini series. Keep the podcasts coming.

  3. I enjoyed your book reviews. I am working on my 5th birdie sling. I have made bags for my daughters and then some as gifts for their friends. I didn't know that Amy butler had a new book out, so thanks. I think I will have to put the book on my Christmas gift list or get it for myself. I enjoy putting together bags as a break from quilting.
    Your podcast and blog has gotten me interested in the swaps on Flickr. I came across the one called: A little fabric, a little chocolate. It sounds interesting and right up my ally.
    Also, I plan on taking a photo of my bulletin board at work next week so I can post it on Flickr. I made a Trick or Treat Banner and a Trick or Treat bag. The bag has a machine applique pumpkin and cat on the front and then I quilted the bag with a glow-in-the thread. It really does glow!

  4. Celia's quilt is gorgeous! Tell her thanks for sharing.


  5. @Debby - Safe travels!

    @Jenn - Jennifer Chavarini's books are great too. I love the Sylvia character - she is very dear. Which book is your favorite in that series?

    @Janet - Can't wait to see your bulletin board! - have a lot of your co-workers stopped to ask you about sewing after seeing your projects?

    @Colleen - Celia is a talent, isn't she? Very inspirational pieces.

  6. I just had a 3 hour drive, so I listened to your last couple podcasts today. Enjoyed them! The new microphone makes a big difference.

    I haven't checked your blog in a while! Nice to see such fun eye candy.

    Keep up the good work!

  7. Thank you, Nikki, for taking the time to comment!
