This blog started as an outlet for my stitchy-side -- a quiet little place to store my thoughts and progress.  It was also an attempt to spare my friends and family from my inane quilting chatter. But I never really thought that *people* would read it!

And then a crazy thing happened. I came home from work, got dinner started, and decided to check my email... and there was an email from Kate Spain! She had seen a picture of my Good Fortune Quilt on Flickr and asked if she could use it in her upcoming newsletter. I am such a huge fan of hers and was completely star-struck.  I managed to pull myself together enough to (of course!) say yes, and the newsletter went out today (if you're not signed up, you should be!). Words cannot even describe how honored I am! Hearing from her and picking up some new readers was (and is!) an enormous encouragement. Thank you!!

And now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go do a little sewing while I float around on cloud nine. :)


  1. I hopped over from Pinterest and I've been reading your posts. I got one of those emails from Kate Spain a year or so ago. I felt the same way! She seems really sweet. I know someone who knows her, so I'm still hoping I'll get to meet her someday.

    1. Welcome, Tina! She really does seem so kind, I hope you get to meet her someday!
