  1. Just listening to your podcast...regarding the pink eye. Do you touch a lot of paper that other people handle? I always get it from handling a lot of paper that others have handled. Even money. It is no fun.

    I hope that you feel better. Tea and honey.

  2. Welcome back Tanesha! Glad you are better. Thanks for the podcast. I had the same reaction to that special issue pre-cut magazine. Way too expensive! Also just watched my way through several of the Patsy Thompson dvd's. What a great teacher. I've been quilting feathers on my "sacrificial" quilt, the one I'm practicing on, and I just love doing them!

  3. Wow! That's one gorgeous quilt! I'd love to know how this is done. I'm just not that creative I don't think. Could you talk more about your 'loom'. I'm dumb when it comes to knitting...but interested!

  4. Thanks all for the comments!
    Kate: yes, I do touch a lot of paper: books, LOL! But I usually handle more when I'm working in the office, which isn't the case right now since I'm on maternity leave. Hmmm, something to think about though.

    Jane: yes, Patsy is a wonderful teacher. Her blog and other videos are fantastic too - I especially like the way she uses the Big Shot by Sizzix to cut appliques and then put them into her quilts. She goes into great detail.

    Robyn: Yes, I will definitely talk about loom knitting on an upcoming episode, and will also blog about it soon. I am working on my cowl now and have about 20 rows done, it's looking good and sooo simple to do once you get the hang of it. The main reason I like loom knitting right now is the slight arthritis in my hands when I needle knit. Loom knitting helps with that a lot.
