I’m so not alone!

Thanks for all that comfort!!!  I loved all your honesty!!!  The funny thing is  the moment it happened I wanted to blame someone !!! If I wasn't so rushed,If my son would get out of bed, if people could have helped me load the car, If my daughter would clean her room, If my husband had pulled his car up it never would have happened.  Oh my God self righteous anger came right in the side door and almost had me blurt out stupid stuff !!  Thank God I didn't cause hindsight tells me I need to slow down.  Rationale can take a life on of its own.  So I really appreciated you fessing up cause that pride can so get in the way of just keeping the peace!!  Speaking of fessing up my friend Victoria Bryant who writes the blog for Fabric.com  admitted to her little fender bender!!  I love you guys!!!  Speaking of loves I have another special love Terri Wilhelm of Terri's notebook  she has been one of those incredible Sis Boom supporters and I can't thank her enough!!  She looks like she's 12 has a heart of gold and delights in crafting beautiful quilts and I know lots of you identify with that!!  She loves Nature and quilts and believes in living in the moment.
Truly a lovely human being, a quality person who appreciates the everydayness of her life.  I learn so much from her!  Take a look at her coin quilt!!

    Simple but very beautiful (my kind of quilt) and I especially like when a quilt uses and shows off the whole fabric line. : ) You have a beautiful line of fabric.

    You really know how to bring tears to a girl’s eyes! I am so humbled. Besides my parents’ pride at college graduation (only 19 years ago) and the vows my husband said to me at our wedding (only 8 years ago), this is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me! Thank you so much for being my friend AND for giving us such beautiful fabrics to play with. Love you!

  3. I love it!! So inspiring

    Such a simply beautiful use of your fabrics. Love the back as much as the front! Kudos to you both!

    I’m constantly amazed by the talent of women who create beautiful quilts! Quilts convey 3 things to me: 1. The beauty of the fabrics used.
    2. The perserverance of the quilt maker.
    3. The talent extraodinaire of the quilt maker.
    I love the blues and greens in the fabrics and the use of the pink fabrics really draws the eye in. Great job, Terri, and beautiful fabrics, Jennifer!

    OH MY. That quilt is WONDERFUL. I don’t know which side I like best! I’d have to hang it in the middle of the room so I could see both sides. The colors and designs in the fabrics are amazing. Really, really beautiful.

    When I worked in a psychiatric hospital I found that the kids felt that they were alone and no one understood how they felt. Fortunately, we are not the only ones to crash into parked trees or cars or fences–how dare they be there!:)
    have a great weekend!

  23. you to Erika ..please shoot me your address when you have the chance!!!

    I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for fashion designers, artists, musicians, and filmmakers: www.PutItOn.com. I’ve been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with no commission taken). The site gives artists a free gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! 
    Thank you!

    I definitely understand the frustration with the fender bender – and there’s nothing that can make it feel better except time! OK, except maybe chocolate!
