Where can I leave a review? You have been so helpful and generous to me that I want others to know how great you are. You’ve emailed me back quickly when I needed to know a fabric color I know you’re a very busy person and I appreciate you!

Thanks so much 🙂 Happy to help!
Listening to your podcast made me think you have been in my mind OR sewing room recently. LOL I followed a sew along this spring with a national fabric company but as it progressed the style of the design in the blocks changed and were not my style. The setting was not appealing to me either. I had lots of thoughts about not finishing it. FINALLY I decided to quit sewing blocks that did not appeal to me. I finished the sewn blocks in a small quilt with an attractive border and used extra blocks on the back. It was nice to be reminded that other quilters share the same issues when sewing a quilt!
I enjoy your YouTube videos so much. All three of you are such a wonderful team.
When I was teaching, I used part of each day as “Ketchup” time. I had this silly inflatable Ketchup bottle that inspired me. It was a time when students could take care of anything they needed to keep on track. This included reading, cleaning their work area, doing assignments, helping each other or me. Basically, they could do anything that was productive and helpful in some way.
Though I no longer set out that crazy bottle I carried that habit into my quilting business and hobby when I retired. Using the seam ripper will sometimes fall into Ketchup time. No worries. It is a time to sit, relax and reset. I will admit that I have taken a rotary cutter to a sashing I didn’t like…just once, but it made it so much easier to frog stitch. I simply consider it repairs and maintenance.
Keep up the great work you are doing! I would love to send a positive review if that would be helpful for you.
Much love and appreciation!

Thank you so much! And I love the Ketchup time idea–for household tasks, quilting etc. Thank you again!
