rhondad...

rhondadesigns says: I tried to resist, but couldn't be shirkin' the chance to work in the tip of my dirk into this conversation. If Francine had worn her jerkin and taken her firkin she could have celebrated with her kin without irkin' the folk in the kirk in Scotland.

You're welcome any time in Italy, I'll make sure there is lots of cake, bunting and tea, although you can't chew my ear off (that's my husband's prerogative) and please don't bring anything that rhymes with gherkin! ;)

francine says: Thank you Monica & congrats back at ya sistah!! :D I did spend an obscene amount of time on it and believe it or not, I'm still working on a revised version to try to get it look the way I want (I'm freaking nuts. Must be.) Samarra, dang. I totally STUDY your designs to try to absorb a little of your deft celebrity caliber skill! I do. Merci :)

Thanks Kelly, that's mighty kind of you! Sarah - I LOVED your sunny eggs calendar!! LOVED it! Kelly, you already know I thought your punny design was my cup o tea! Victoria, you're sweet as cake to say so =) Corner piece sweet!!! Joanne - thanks so much for always piping in with nice comments and kind words. Everyone should be so lucky to have such a lovely person cheering them on! Shin: you're a cross media genius! Photography AND textile! I want to go to Italy and meet you on a bench in a park somewhere with a chicken friend and chew your ear off. Rachel: your design belonged up in the top ten. A crime has been committed. I say no more on it. Rhonda: you leave the bestest comments!!! Thank you! =) (big hook cane yanking me off the stage by the neck now ....)
