Heather Ross

Really, need I say more? Let me set the scene for you. I was busy baking brownies in muffin pans last night to thank someone at work for all their help and I had just popped them into the over and my cell phone rang. I looked at the number, hmmm 917 area code? Maybe it is DH since he is out of town, using someone's phone? I pick up and say hello? I hear, "Hi, is this Pam?" of course I say "yes" and then I hear, "This is Heather Ross"!!!!!! You have to be kidding me right? No it really was her!!!! I had bought some stuff via her studio sale and she was calling to ask me a few questions about what I might like. Really? I LOVE all her stuff. So we discussed a few things and then she says that she found some BOLTS of Flea Market Fancy (Denise Schmidt) in her storage unit and maybe I might like some of that too? Umm YESSSSS. She got it when she did some work for a book I think she said, but what was funny was that she told me it was in the back of the storage unit and she forgot about it. She told me the unit is so big you could hide a body in it and probably never find it!! HAHAHA Then she told me they just bought a house. First house? No, country house, they have a flat in Manhattan. Funny you should say that as I will be in NYC next week. She asked me if I know the Purl? Of course I do, I follow their blog. Well, she has to go there next week to pick up a few things and if I can fit it into my schedule maybe we can meet up at the Purl!!!!!!! I almost fainted. Fit it into my schedule? It will be the first thing to be scheduled!!!!! Everything else can work around that.

We also talked about her designing and she is meeting with some companies trying to see where she will be designing. I really hope she chooses Moda. I don't know which companies she is meeting with but I'm sure she will tell everyone once she makes her decision.

Then she tells me to send her an email when I get to the city and we can make a plan to meet up. You betcha I sure will!!

So I of course called PTM and she was so excited too. I think she is sending some things for Heather to sign, LOL. A quilt top and back I believe. I have to be able to carry it around with me though! Her DDIL told her she should go with us and when I asked DH he said, well we have a pull out couch in our room...I think he would totally let her come with us too. Isn't that sweet? What a keeper! I don't think she will come though. How much fun would that be if she did? Can't you just see the two of us loose in NYC??? I might just swoon thinking about it!!

Well, that's the most excitement happening around here. Whoever said that after something bad happens to them something really good follows was so right. I will keep you posted. <3 XOP
