Going crazy

Hey everyone....Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. I looked at my last post this morning and couldn't Believe that it had been 2 weeks since I wrote...Life has been crazy!

I am so excited that tomorrow I will be on Pat Sloan's Creative Talk Radio show. I'll be chatting about Wool Crazy (I am sure you are all surprised)! You can follow along at ... It starts at 4 pm for those of you in San Diego that is 1:00....If you miss it then, you can listen to it on the computer later.

After the show leave a post on Pat's blog and you might win a copy of Wool Crazy!

Thought you might like to see what I have been working on. It is a new design using the Wool Crazy techniques. The pattern, Crazy Wool Sewing Keep will be coming out at Quilt Market in Minneapolis.

This is a photo of the inside...the little fold over with the bird on it opens for needles...and there is a place for pins and scissors....then all those containers on the other side are for all those goodies we can't do without!

This is a closer look at the needle and pin holders....

and this is the back....lots of crazy stitching here...

....and the front....even more stitching

We've had a lot of fun with this at the Loft and I think you'll like it too!

Quilt Market is only a little over 3 weeks away! My studio is getting a lot of use these days...there are things stacked everywhere! Last week we had a break-in here (fortunately not much missing....and just a little damage)...but the policeman who came to check out the house was sure that my studio had been ransacked. :))) Gene had to confess that it had looked just like that in the morning! What can I say...designing is not a neat activity!

Hope you get a chance to join us tomorrow...for click on links go to my last post.... Andy does a much better job at linking!!! I am determined to figure it out...but maybe not today.

Bye for now....Jo Ann
