Well, there you have it. I really had more to share, but it's past my bedtime and I don't want to push my luck. One wrong move and POOF, I could lose it all. O, that would not be pretty, trust me. Is anyone else having fits with Blogger? Please say it's not just me.

One of my friends emailed to show me some Kalencom Diaper bags she was carrying in her store. Out of curiousity I got on the Kalencom website and was a bit confused because the bag she showed me wasn't on their website. So I did a bit of research and look what I came up with! I found 17 diaper bags and Midi bags using my fabrics. I don't know if that's all, but I was very happy. Pretty cool huh? I have to wonder what I'd do if I spotted someone with one over their shoulder. I'm pretty sure I'd make a fool out of myself. I put large images of each bag in Flickr. Thanks Kalencom!

But I left my collage pile out because I really, REALLY want to finish my collages. Here is the next one in the series. If you missed my last post, they go with these. One more and I will have actually finished a project for myself. They just might have a future in my entry.
.While I have been doing my thing, others have been doing things with my fabrics. Here are just a few for you to enjoy:
Have you seen this great tutorial on Sew4Home? They are one of my favorite home decor blogs (I bet I already told you that. I tend to repeat myself when I'm excited). They used my Woodland Delight fabrics and I can't tell you how badly I NEED THIS myself! Cool, huh?
Above is the Manhattan Soiree quilt using my Summer Soiree fabric for Michael Miller Fabrics in the current issue of Fons&Porter's Easy Quilts magazine. Complete instructions are included. Quilt and design by Marinda Stewart. Go check it out.
Here is another wall hanging version using my Summer Soiree fabric. Free downloadable instructions are available in the Spring 2010 online issue of AllPeopleQuilt.com. Quilt design and pattern by Marinda Stewart.
We are seeing hints of Spring here. Our 28th anniversary is this weekend and I so hope I can finally spend a little time with my man.

The knives I'm juggling are getting larger and sharper (see last post), or so it seems some days. Tim has been gone on an extended business trip and somehow I thought I'd get so much done. Yeah, I'm dysfunctional like that. While waiting for my next instructions for the new line I'm working on and avoiding the extensive "To Do List", I decided to chuck it all over the weekend and try my hand at a series of collages. This is a stretch for me. My art is usually detailed and I'm trying to free myself up a bit. I'm half done with the third one, but had to quickly change gears (got my next instructions and that list just doubled). I just wanted to pop in and let you know I'm still alive and here's some proof...
