Hello Everyone,

Yes, I am having a difficult time finding a good rhythm to my summer sewing and blogging. One thing that troubles me is that I love to answer all the comments that I get. But when I had my giveaway and then the drawing, I just couldn't keep up. Partly because we went away immediately after each posting.

So, I have decided, like many other bloggers in the same situation, to wipe the slate clean and pick up from here. My apologies to all my wonderful readers. I will be answering from here on in, thanks for your understanding.

Now some very COOL news. I am now searchable on iTunes!! Yes, my podcasts are now officially in iTunes!!! I am among the likes of Alex Anderson and Annie Smith. I am just tickled pink. My newest podcast is out and you can click on my sidebar to get it or go to iTunes and and do a search for it. Lots of good info on this Podcast, so definitely subscribe. Note if you are a previous subscriber you will need to re-subscribe as the URL has changed.

Also of special note you can get my July, 2009 Newsletter online now. Just click here.

Enough of the boring stuff, bring on the fabric and patterns.

I some projects/finds/patterns/thanks to acknowledge, so here goes....

I recently purchased these lovely Kaffe Fassett fabrics from Terri at Quilternity. She has a wonderful selection and great prices. She is also quick as a bunny! I bought them for a special project, of which I cannot mention, because a certain someone may be reading.

Aren't they gorgeous?

Then on our little trip to my Mother-in-law's home in Kutztown, PA. We went to the Folk Festival. Of course, I went to the quilt barn, but look what I picked up at an antique vendor, some gorgeous feedsacks. I thought of you Nanette and Glenna!

I also recently purchased this wonderfully written and produced pattern from Stephanie at Loft Creations. It is her first published pattern and it is a real gem. If you haven't gotten it yet, it is a must.

I was also lucky enough to win a giveaway from Julie at JayBird Quilts. She sent me this wonderful template set and some charm squares that are just perfect. Thank you Julie!!

So here is to hoping I soon get some rhythm. I really need to because I am also way behind on putting customer quilts on my website gallery. Next post you will see some progress on projects! So wish me luck and .....

Until Next Time.....
