  1. Looks like you bought some of that "Maywood?" dyed fabric. Beautiful stuff.
    Wonderfull to see you all together and fun for all of your Podcast buddies to live with you.
    We all feel like great friends when we listen to you. Thank you for including us.

  2. Hi AJ,

    I'm catching up on your podcasts, but had to skip ahead to this one to hear about the Waterfall Meet-Up. I think you win the prize for First to Post.

    I've been meaning to comment for a while, but having trouble logging in. Hopefully, it will take this time.

    I appreciate it when you mention DC Metro traffic; I'm over in Annapolis, MD but it's not much better here than in your Virginia area. Thank goodness I have podcasters like yourself to keep me company on my 60 miles every day.

    When you mentioned how quickly your long-arm quilting comes back, I was pleasantly surprised to see that we both go to Aurora Quilts in Manassas. It's a long drive for me, but I love their work and always make a trip around the corner for the Creole Food at Okra's Restaurant.

    All the best.

  3. Hi Miss AJ,

    I am so glad I found your podcast. I had not heard of it before your podcaster meet-up. You kept me company this morning while I worked on a small quilt. Miss AJ, you have such a lovely podcaster's voice and point of view. I am pretty sure 15 podcasts makes you a quilting star too.

  4. So glad I found you! You're keeping me company while I work on a Corgi dog costume for my daughter's 2nd grade musical: "ARF!"
    Jodi is adorable. Our helper puppy, Fanny is 9 months old. Thanks and looking forward to hearing more!
