  1. Love your podcast! Just switched to stitcher and can’t find you there :(. I’ve emailed them but no replies. Can you help me? Are you listed with stitcher? I’m listening from your site until this gets resolved. Appreciate ideas!

  2. good to hear that you feel in a much better place this year compared to last year. What a difference a year makes 🙂 I love the way you keep on top of your projects and don’t let finished tops languish for months or years to get completed. You make me smile that three tops un quilted is a pile up. I totally agree with you. I have one top there that I made years ago but haven’t finished. I keep thinking I will make it into the backing for a baby quilt but I don’t like it enough to make it the back of any top I have made… it just doesn’t go. Need to make something and put it on the back of it and get it out of here! Easier said than done it seems

  3. Phillipa - the unfinished top you don’t like will be loved by someone else. Back & quilt it and move it on! You will feel better and so won’t the eventual recipient.

  4. I asked my DD what she would suggest for your daughter’s reading, since DD read ahead of her age. She loved:

    The Witch Family, by Eleanor Estes.
    Betsy-Tacy, by Maud Hart Lovelace, and all the rest of the series.
    The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S.Lewis.
    The Saturdays, by Elizabeth Enright.
    The American Girl stories.

    The older Lois Lenski books, such as Strawberry Girl, Blue Ridge Billy and Bayou Suzette, might catch your daughter’s fancy, as might the Andrew Lang Books, i.e. Blue Fairy Book etc.

    I probably have copies of all these books and would be happy to see you knocking at my door to come get them 🙂

  5. Oh, that is a challenging age. We had the same issue with all my kids. Why isn’t there an IMDB type of thing for books?
    Can’t wait to see all of your big finishes. Sounds like you had a very productive week!
