Wow, those hand painted hand bags are great. And I loved the podcast!! So good. You did amazing πŸ™‚

Thank you, Anya! I was following your excellent lead πŸ˜‰

Thanks for the mention! πŸ˜‰ I’m looking forward to listening to your podcast!

Thanks, Gillian!

Thanks so much for the mention! I always look forward to your posts… especially the Wednesday Weekly. <3

Thank you! Your Winslows made me very happy πŸ˜€

Hey Helen – I’ve seen you link a few times to German blogs – do you speak German? I do, but I’ve never really gone searching for German sewing blogs…I’m busy enough reading all sorts of English blogs! Just curious πŸ™‚

Hi Maggie! I don’t speak german, unfortunately! What happened was I stumbled on one german blog, and then it linked to another, and so on and so forth. Now, bloglovin’ often recommends them to me because it probably thinks I speak German, too! I rely on google translate to read them, but at least I don’t need to speak the language to enjoy the amazing sewing photos πŸ™‚

Thank for the shout out Helen, I am so happy that you like my Acton X

You Acton is the stuff dreams are made of! πŸ˜€

I really enjoyed your interview on Maker Style!

Thank you so much, Mariah!

Thanks for the shoutout, Helen! I just listened to your podcast last night–I was excited to see that you were on there! You did a great job.
