I have two "thank you's" to make... and since they are both equally deserving, this is in alphabetical order.
First, to Camille of Thimble Blossoms fame.
Camille posted here a little while back and after exchanging an e-mail or two, she mentioned that she had made a quilt using my Summer Wind pattern. When I mentioned that I would love to see a picture of it one day, she posted the pictures of her quilt on her wonderful blog, Simplify.
It's beautiful. Absolutely, take-my-breath-away gorgeous.
Now I expect to see versions of my patterns that are better than the original... but really, this is kind of embarassing. Not to mention, a bit depressing. I mean, it isn't like her fabulous photography doesn't already put me to shame... put a lot of us to shame! I am so looking forward to her tutorial on that.
If you take a moment to go over, be sure to wish her a speedy "get well". She's had a nasty cold the past few days. She needs to get well so she can get back to creating beautiful new fabric and quilts.
And make sure you read down to the entry on Treat ~ those chocolate chip cookies really are the BEST ever. (What? You think I wasn't going to make the chocolate chip cookies? Mom's got patterns to pack!)
And to Moda Lissa ... the President of my fan club. (It's a lonely job...)
If you read the Jolly Jabber a week ago, you know that I sort of picked on Lissa a little bit for getting me into the Schnibble thing. I suppose I was over-reaching just a tad to suggest that it was pestering when she was really just offering me more fabric ~ in the form of charm packs. Kind of makes me a little ungrateful, don't you think?
And she still thinks I deserve a fan club?
For those of you that read her blog, she really is as nice, as generous, as enthusiastic, as supportive and as full of energy as she comes across there. Yes, she'll convince you to do things that you're not sure you're ready to do... Schoolhouse... but she's usually right.
She'll even help you find stuff you didn't know you needed until you saw it... like these wonderful soaps.
When she wrote about them, I just had to have one. Or four. (I am a TOTAL perfume-girl ~ perfume, potpourri, scented candles, bath gels... if it smells good, just wrap it up and let me know how much I owe you.)
Trust me, they smell fabulous! The only problem is that I may need to order more so I can have some to actually use and some to just keep looking so pretty in their little packaging. (Right... like you haven't bought two of something ~ fabric! ~ for the same reason!)
Hmmm... maybe Lissa is trouble after all.
