  1. Great episode as always, T! I just saw those Little Apple fabrics the other day and love them. Not sure what I would do with them, but I really, really love them.


  2. Another great podcast! I loved hearing about rescuing your fabric stash in an emergency. I get it! Some things are just priority! lol! Thanks for the news about the upcoming fabric lines and crafting books. WhooHoo!

  3. Thanks for all the book recs. I put Spellman Files on my Kindle and am enjoying it. Here's to Fall!

  4. I am behind in listening to your podcast and just heard about your foam problem. Since a lot of time has passed, you have probably already solved the foam problem, but I thought I would pass on some thoughts I had when I listened to what you were trying to do. I have some small packs of thread from Oliver Twist (see http://www.friendsfabricart.com/shop/index.php?p=catalog&parent=25&pg=1) for what I am talking about. Included in the pack is a hank of a vriety of specialty threads. I have a white pack and there is some fluffy white thread/yarn/something in between in the pack. I was thinking that something like that couched or stitched down with a stem stitch might work really well for what you are trying to do. Thanks for your episodes. Hope you enjoyed the show!
