    Hi Jenn

    I wanted to be your first international listener, but Vanessa in Australia beat me. She’s also a little more international – I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

    I’m really enjoying your podcast. I’ve been listening while I drive to and from work, and you make me laugh. Good way to start and end the day. I love your information about quilting, and also enjoy your stories about Flora. She’s lovely.

    I’m up to the end of podcast 10, and no intro music yet. What’s up with that? I hope you didn’t pay your brother in advance!

    Thanks for the new quilting podcast to add to my list. I listened to #’s 2, 3 & 5 while gardening today. I’m looking forward to getting caught up as time and my 3 & 1/2 year old daughter allow!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Recently found your podcasts and have listened to a Patchwork and Pacifiers marathon the last few days. I have really enjoyed listening to you while quilting – super fun and entertaining.

    Hi Jennifer. Just looking at your blog cause I’m missing your podcasts and have to say congratulations on the new baby coming. That is so exciting for you and I don’t envy you at all as having 2 close together will mean you will be even busier, but hoping you will still find time to podcast, cause I love hearing everything. Your experiences just give me gusto to get going and sew or something. Also living in Australia I love hearing all about your life in the USA. Thanks and all the best to you and your family. Vanessa

    I am a new podcast listener, new quilter & sewer. I downloaded your podcast a few weeks ago and I think its amazing! I love your voice and your enthusiasm for projects and everything quilty or not. I love hearing about your little adventures, and your capacity to tell a story about something that has happened just makes me want to listen to more. Keep up the good work. I do end up laughing at least once each podcast!

    Just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying your podcasts. I am still listening to the “early ones” but will have caught up to date soon. It’s nice to know that not every project comes out perfectly – makes your listeners feel a little better!
    I am enjoying your family stories, updates on Flora and stories of your daily life!
    Keep up the inspiration!
    Love to you and your family!

    Hi Jennifer, just checking in that everything is all ok. Missing your podcasts heaps, and hoping that there is nothing wrong, that your just taking it easy over your summer months. Us in Australia have just hit Spring, yippee. Hope to hear you soon on the podcast. Take care, Vanessa

    I second the comment above, everything ok, Jennifer? I’ve been listening to the old podcasts and really hope all is well with you. Very tired from the new baby on the way? Hang in there, you’ve made a lot of people very happy with all you do! Thank you, Kathleen a newbie quilter

    Thank you for letting us all know what happened to you. You are very brave to share your sorrow. I know you will be in my prayers and I am sure many others. I know all your fans miss you, I know I do. Love to you and your family.

    Jennifer, I enjoy your podcasts. Your voice is cool. I had my granddaughter listen to your podcast as we drove down the hill from South Lake Tahoe last April. I am so proud of my 26 year old granddaughter. She has gone with me the last 3 years to a quilt retreat in Tahoe and plans to go again next April 2010.
    Good Luck to you and your family.

    Hi Jennifer, just a quick note to see how your doing. I’m not getting much sewing time in myself at the moment, but always finding new inspiration everywhere around me. Missing your regular podcasts but understand life gets beyond us at times, me I’m busy busy myself and wish for more me time, but being as we are that doesn’t happen. Anyway, just wanted to check in and hope to hear a new podcast soon. Take care. Vanessa

    Happy Birthday! I was listening to some of your past podcast when you mentioned your birthday was coming up. I thought it was great timing to hear the podcast.
    Congrats on the news of the upcoming baby boy.
    I enjoy your podcasts you discuss so much in quilting, spinning and knitting. You are so funny. I have been enjoying listening to the earlier podcasts as well as the recent ones.
    I don’t know much about spinning but out here in the Black Hills there is a spinning group. I do know one lady in the group ahd she has shown me a bit about spinning. Also, at the local Salvation Army there is a spinning wheel for sale; it is $250.

    I have heard so much about your podcasts and really want to listen. I don’t use an iPod. Could you give me the url for the podcasts so I can subscribe with a Zune?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi, just checking in to see how you are doing. Hope your spirits are up and you are doing well. How many days left of bed rest? Can’t wait for your exciting news of the arrival of the baby. Are your friends and family giving a bedside baby shower?

    Miss your podcasts, Jennifer. I’m a new quilter and you inspire me to try new things, even if they scare the crap out of me.
    I’m expecting my third baby in January after a loss this past November, so I feel kind of “connected” with you. Hope you don’t think that sounds freaky, I totally don’t mean it that way. 🙂

    Best wishes and prayers for your health and the wee one’s, as well.

    Hi Jennifer,
    I just recently found your podcast and I love it! I love quilting and am learning how to knit so love listening to you talk about both, but to be honest I could listen to you chat all day long on just about any subject as you are such a kick to listen to. Thanks for making me laugh and feel better about my quilting and kntitting mishaps! Congratualations on your new beautiful baby!

    Hi, Jennifer

    I found you on my iphone under Mark Lipinski… 😉

    Went through your various past podcasts and listen to about several.
    You have a great personality and like how you combine your everyday life with quilting. Keep bringing in the interviews with artist and placed you visit that are quilt related etc..

    Anyway, it made me feel that no matter how busy you are there is no excuse for not doing what you were meant to do. Whatever that may be?

    Thank you for helping me to refocus on the thing I Iove the most “Quilting”.
