Guest Blogger

I want to introduce myself.  I am Karmen, Linda Brannock's daughter.  My mother would love to be a blogger, but since she is busy doing other things, the learning curve got lost amongst the many non-linear paths of focus that are her nature, so to speak.  I decided I will show you around a bit.
 She (mother) and her design partner, Jan Patek, are just silly crazy about their newest fabric line.  I got a call the other night to search my fabric stash for the diagonal red plaid that mother thinks I absconded with to Atlanta from Kansas City.  I don't have it.  I looked everywhere possible, but I am sure Mom and I just don't have any yardage of any of the REMEMBRANCE line.  Moda sent us all manner of pre-cuts.  But the need was for yardage.  I am not sure what she is cooking up.

I get to visit my mother at her home outside Kansas City whenever I can take some time off from working at a college here outside Atlanta.  Lately, when I've visited, we have worked on this Rattlesnake design from a class mother took from Karen Stone.  Yes, even designers have their UFOs.  One of the perks of being her daughter is I can scavenge some pretty cherry UFO projects and make them my own.  She won't let me bring it home to work on though, and she doesn't touch it when I am gone.  So the progress is S-L-O-W.
 I did abscond to Atlanta with this little quilt.  At the time I figured it was easier to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission.  Now it is hanging in my guest bedroom, she knows it is here, since she reads MY blog daily, and she has graciously decided it should stay at my house.
My attack Kitten guards it with her life.
