    (And Jennifer – the new website is looking great!)

  3. Just wanted to say, great interview! I think I love Anna Maria even more now, if that’s possible. You were great too, I am glad I found your blog through hers : )

    Hi Jennifer,
    I would love to hear an interview with Jordana Paige.
    I love the purses she designs and I think it would be interesting to find out how she started and where she gets her inspiration from.

    Great interview. I’m glad you didn’t shorten it. It was wonderful!

  6. Tara says:

    Thank you so much for the interview with Anna Maria! Even though it was one of your longer interviews, I was disappointed to hear it end. The interview itself was so natural and delightfully conversational, and Anna Maria is absolutely a gem. I recently discovered her in the Spring 2008 issue of “Quilts and More” in which her profile was featured. I started seeking her out online, and this is when I realized that I have some of her Chocolate Lollipop fabric in my stash! I think she’s fantastic, and I can’t wait to get her book and hear her follow-up interview in the future. Thanks Jennifer!

    Thanks for the great chat! You are both delightful!

    Jennifer: this was a fantastic interview! I had such a great time listening, thanks so much! Can’t wait to hear the spinning podcast!

  9. Marianne says:

    I really enjoyed this interview. I’ve been reading Anna Maria’s blog for awhile now and was so excited to see you were going to chat with her. I’m looking forward to part 2 in the future!

    I just started listening to these fantastic podcasts again and really enjoyed this one with Anna Maria Horner. Very inspiring. I loved that it was long. I can’t get enough of listening to creative people talk about their art, their lives, and what inspires them. Thank you!

  11. The interview was really great! I really enjoyed listening to the whole interview.

  12. Wendi Gratz says:

    Thanks so much for the great interview! I can’t wait to read more of your blog. You cracked me up with your apron talk. I make a lot of things for my 5-year old daughter and she likes them, but it’s not really a big deal to her anymore. I recently made (after her bedtime) a ruffly children’s apron for a wholesale order. She saw it in the morning when she woke up and it was love at first sight. “Oh Mommy! I love this! Is it for me?” Of course, it is now. She wore it to school that day over a pair of jeans – “just to be pretty.”

  13. Kari says:

    Thanks for turning me on to yet another fabulous, crafty person out there. I will start reading her blog and can’t wait to get my hands on some of her fabric. I can finally find Amy Butler fabric in Spokane, so it seems Anna Maria’s fabric should be right there too. I bought the Emmeline apron pattern which seems like an obvious place to use her awesome fabric.
    Keep up your amazing work Jennifer!

  14. Chris says:

    I just listened to the podcast TWICE, it was so interesting. As a new crafter, I had not heard of Anna Maria, but when I checked here on your blog, and followed your link, I see that I watched her when she was on Martha! And I remember thinking at the time how incredible her fabrics were. But all my other tasks crowded in and I am only now exploring her site.
    As usual, thanks for a fun and informative podcast, and for all the great links you provide.

  15. Great interview! Thanks so much for letting us hear so much of it.
    :)

  16. Sara in WI says:

    Wow! I finally made some time to sit down and listen to this episode. It is hard to find quiet time alone…..would you identify with that? What an amazing interview. I love everything about the episode……never shorten anything this good. Thanks again!

  17. T2 says:

    I love that your podcast keeps introducing me to wonderfully creative people that I might not have known about otherwise. I’ve just added Anna Maria’s blog to my list that I read.

    I’m always curious about what drives people to write blogs, so I love that you guys discussed that from several angles.

  18. Ansley says:

    Great show! Anna has so much to say. What a generous guest. Thanks for your show!

  19. Jaye L says:

    I loved the interview with Anna Maria Horner! It was so real; I loved it. You don’t need to shorten the interviews for me, if they are going well. I just use the pause button and look forward to coming back later!

    On the making of the beds front: I read an article once that talked about the habits of different cultures regarding bedmaking. I looked high and low and couldn’t find it, but will keep looking; may have been a Martha Stewart article. Anyway, I adopted the Italian habit of leaving the bed unmade in order to air it out. Makes sense, right? I don’t want all that stinky sweat or whatever festering away all day in a beautifully made bed.

    Thanks for your hard work.

  20. Lisa says:

    Thanks for the show with Anna Maria. She looks like she is twelve years old in her photo you have posted! She has accomplished so much! Thanks for your great website and the podcasts!

  24. Wow i love how people aren’t even going to look at the trailer… it’s clearly not there in the trailer shot… it’s definitely something. If it’s the shield i can’t say… but it’s not the holographic desk. His office has a very specific layout and he desk wasn’t back there.

  46. Reforming the health care system has enabled millions of Americans to purchase health coverage, but “Obamacare” is still the favorite target of the Republican Party. The crisis in Syria and the excitement generated by the Ebola virus have only reinforced the perception of a lack of “leadership” in the White House.

He later apologized and said, “I shouldn’t have said those things,” but Ernst made some hay from the comment and won election on Tuesday
