Y'all have heard of me talk about the Pillow Talk Swap over on Flickr, yes?  You also know of that saying that goes, "good things come to those who wait"? 

{{sorry I need a break to go jump up and down and squeal again.........brb}}

Ok....sorry about that. Trying to contain my excitement enough to write this post!! Wanna know why??!! 

Ok, lemme tell ya since you've gone and twisted my arm all up ... hee hee!

Let me introduce you to Ryan of Ryan Walsh Quilts. He is an uber cool dude and he quilts and stuff! Click over there on his name and spend some time {{hours}} over on his blog looking at all the fun stuff he has made! He has some really great projects and tutorials too! But before you go.....

LOOKIE WHAT HE SENT ME FOR PILLOW TALK 4!!!!! {{breathes in a bag....}}

My son came toodling in after school with a big ole box in his hands. I saw the return address and snatched the box very nicely from my kid! I knew...I knew what was in it because just a few days ago Ryan posted this on his blog....

  14. you know i want it.. you know i've been stalking it... and i can't believe you even put in the post that i can't have it. we are SO not friends anymore. & i may or may not have known this was coming your way from a phone conversation that i may or may not have had this week. all i saying is i'm not good at keeping secrets and this might be why we didn't talk much this week. ;-)

  20. That is gorgeous Karrie, the pebble quilting is amazing. I have a stash of neptune fabric awaiting a special project. I am also a lover of turtles, they nest on the beach across the road from where I live this time of year. We are one beach down from the Mon Repos rookery. The hatchlings are just starting to make an appearance and there is something just so special about getting to see all of this.
