    I love the needle case - did you know that on your pattern page it's listed as a 'neddle case'!!

    1. Hi Gill: Yes, it's the famous ancient nomenclature for the first needle which was made from the spine of the famous Scottish Nettle, or neddle, in older English.....also, it's an intended illustration of Murphy's Law which includes: "No typos will be found until the final draft is published." Cheers, Kathie PS - The neddle case and the needle case are the same item and reely, um, really fun to make. O gosh.

    1. Hello Pat: I'm glad you stopped by. The needle case is fun to make and have. Even for quilters who prefer machine piecing, some hand work is involved somewhere in the process....thus....we all need a needle case, don't we? I love applique and embroidery, so I have several.

    1. Huesei: I'm pretty sure I'm following you too. Thank you so much for stopping by. I know Sunbonnet Sue is an American phenomenon so I'm glad you like her too. Girls and Women in the early days before sun screen wore bonnets to keep the sun from browning their skin and causing freckles to come out. The bigger the bonnet, the better the protection!

    1. Thanks, Richard, for visiting and following. So, you're next quilt will be Sunbonnet Sue or Sunhat Sam? Choices, choices, choices. I used to always include Sam in my patterns but learned people buy Sue more often, so Sam is mostly retired. I hope to find him a more prominent place in future.

  18. I'm usually very good at following instructions, but I went to your etsy shop and I have to say that, hands down, your Hawaiian Sunbonnet Sue pattern is my favorite....the changes in hat, dress, and feet really capture a hawaiian feel...would be a great hand applique (or machine, but I prefer hand) project! Oh, and I signed up to follow via google reader.

    1. That's acceptable because that quilt, which I visited yesterday at our local quilt shop where it's on display, is a personal favorite of mine. It was so much fun to make and the Blank Splash fabrics were just the thing. Thanks for your lovely words. Glad to find you here.

    1. Kitties and quilts; a marriage made in heaven, according to the kitties. We make kitty-quilts at our house: two fat quarters with some batting in between and a little machine quilting. These are just right for a chair seat where a kitty might want to nap. Keeps the fur off the furniture (Why is the word "fur" in the word "furniture"? Kitty's answer, "If not for naps, why it called 'fur' niture?")

  24. I'm a new follower & have signed up for newsletter. I would love the Harvest Mice wall quilt pattern. If I'm lucky enough to win, I would patiently wait until it's available! The Harvest Kitty is also sweet...they would make nice set! Thanks for the giveaway!
