One Sick Puppy

You are going to feel so bad about getting frustrated with me for not writing.   I have been sick.  The truth is that I rarely get sick.  In fact, I cannot even remember the last time I was sick since I got pneumonia about 30 years ago and ended up in the hospital.  So, when a germ catches up with me, it calls for reinforcements.  Two days ago I was whimpering like a baby.   I am now upright thanks to the powers of the pharmacy as well as all the TLC my daughter could muster.  I can finally say, I am on the mend.

The really cool news is that I got my "palm" samples from China. 

Wanna know something?  I had the samples sent expedited mail.  It cost me $32--remember, from CHINA.  Today, I tried to get a small package expedited from the U.S.  Guess what they were asking for the shipping?  $45.00, in addition to the regular charges for does one justify that?

Anyway, the samples are fun.  What an ego trip--one's own designs on fabric.  It does not get much better than that.  Well, it does get better when one is validated by folks purchasing the fabric.  I know I am not supposed to be judging myself or my work on what others think, but, that is asking more than I am capable of.   If you don't like what I do -- I am dirt.  I am worthless.  I am nothing....  If you do like it....I am WORTHY!!

So, the gauntlet is passed.......


  1. How about if we just love, love, love your fabrics? Does that make you Queen of the Quilters again!?
