Did you SEE that?

Ok. I am close to speechless right now. That is a big step for me. I just settled onto the couch this morning and was wondering what the day was going to bring. I settled m 'lappy' onto my lap and began to check all of my favorite blogs. I usually check MINE last. Why? Because I already know what the post is- and I want to save all my comments for the end to give me a pick-me-up before I close 'lappy' and head off to my daily chores a.k.a. being a Mom/housewife.

But today was different than most days. I started checking out blogs alphabetically. Which means right I after I read a little 'cjane' and skipped past 'crazymomquilts' (*sniff, sniff* I still can't get over that) I clicked right on CRAZYOLDLADIES. Scroll down to see comments and notice there is one more than the lats time I checked. *CLICK!*

SPEECHLESS! Did YOU see who commented on MY blog? I'm still in a bit of shock. I'm a bit of a fan of some of those quilters out there and I view them with a slight (Ok, probably a lot more than 'slight') celebrity status. So when I see that JOANNA of FIG TREE QUILTS has commented on my blog it's almost as if I've brushed elbows with someone famous.

I met Joanna once. I'm sure she doesn't remember. It was in Pittsburgh @ Spring market last year. She had the most BEAUTIFUL booth. I couldn't get enough of it and asked if I could take pictures. I wasn't surprised at all to learn that she won an award at market for "Best Merchandising" (I think!?). It was amazing.

So forgive me on this weary Wednesday morning if I'm a little star-struck. But, I mean, Joanna commented on my blog! :o)

Wow, that is exciting! How nice that Joanna took the time to leave a comment. I wonder if a designer has left a comment on my blog but I failed to notice??? Probably not.....
