I'd like to share a story that my former co-workers at Martingale would get a kick out of. Last week, when I was visiting Seiko, we were talking about crafts and how much we like them. Seiko likes to sew, and she's made quilts and dolls and other really cute things that she showed me pictures of. She's also volunteered at one of the big quilt shows in Tokyo. While we were talking, she said she wanted to show me her favorite calendar, and she brought a copy of the 365 Quilt Blocks a Year calendar to the table. I know Martingale sells products around the world, but it was still a big surprise to see the calendar in Seiko's home, and she was even more surprised when I told her that I used to work for the company that makes the calendar! Seeing the enjoyment that the calendar brings Seiko was great, and I thought you guys would think it was great too.

Great to know the calendar is being enjoyed in Japan and that you've found a crafty friend. Love the blog!

Heh heh heh. You can go halfway around the world, but you still can't get away from us.

We miss you, Ellen!
