    Just heard about your podcast on Within a Quarter Inch and listened today for the first time. Really enjoy it! My family loves visiting Oregon every summer ( and I always manage a trip to the Pine Needle or Sisters. I recommend a book I discovered listening to the Splendid Table Podcast – Artisan Bread in 5 minutes. Love it!! My family loves it. Easy to make great bread with little time – which is probably where you are at with a small child. I checked it out from the library and will now buy it. Thanks for the podcast!!!

    I heard about you from Within a quarter inch too. I’m trying to catch up on all the episodes while I work in my sewing room. So a belated Happy 30th Birthday and best of luck with the garden. I’m fortunate to live in the central valley of California, so tomatoes are my favorite thing to grow, and yes, Sun Gold and Sweet Gold are the best!! I need to grow hybrids for their diease resistance, because where tomatoes thrive, so do the pests…
    Love your podcast.

    Oh, yeah, we saw Coraline! It was AWESOME! Until my 10 year old son was covering his eyes!!! Yikes! Other then that it was a great movie. We love Tim Burton!!! My son’s whole theme in his bedroom is Asian. Those pre cut fabrics would have a GOOD home here 🙂 I do hope others call in for the contest. I fought tooth and nail with those stars but I did triumph and they are beautiful. I guess in the long run it’s sometimes worth the pain. A sashing test photo is on my blog 🙂

    hi–just wanted to pop in and say that i’m a huge fan–it’s so much fun to listen to your podcast! there’s not many quilting ones out there and i’m stuck listening to knitting ones and i don’t even knit! (well, i listen to other stuff too but i like to listen to crafty stuff while quilting). the two hardest patterns that i’ve done are ones i made during classes–one was the lemoyne star with sharyn craig and the other was the rolling star (is that what it’s called) with a quilter who’s up your way–i think you mentioned her in a previous podcast. anyways–please keep posting your podcasts–i know it’s a lot of work and that you’ve got your hands full with a new baby–but just know that we listeners truly appreciate you!
