If you missed episode 100, you may want to listen to that episode first to get the complete back story of how Abby shifted her career from teaching middle school to soft sculpture art. Check out Abby’s website and blog, and visit the blogs listed below to enjoy the other stops on her blog tour.

hi Jennifer, not sure what’s going on–my ipod says it’s episode 123, but i’m hearing #122 with Anna Hrachovec. i don’t want to miss out on the newest episode! (and thanks for doing the podcasts–i always look forward to hearing your interviews)

Hi Dorothy. There was a glitch when the show was first posted. If you delete that podcast file and try to upload #123 again, you will get the right episode. My apologies for the confusion. – Jennifer
