Tired Kid

Oh, hello, hello!

First of all, I’m okay. Thanks for checking on me. You’re kind and dear, and if I had the juice to go on about your kindness and dearness, it would be a juice cafe around here. Think ginger-kale-apple-lime-parsley or something equally piquant and healthful. That’s you. You’re piquant and healthful and if I had a juice cafe, I’d serve you.

Second of all, I’m traveling across a very large state for Quiltfolk’s ninth issue and I’m the editor and I’m the driver, so when I’m not on location, setting up shots and directing this and that, I’m driving to the next location. So it’s hard to do a blinking thing when I drop into another hotel room at night if that isn’t face planting into the bed.

Third of all, that picture up there doesn’t mean anything. After being away for a spell and then posting a picture of a woman with a baby, it’s possible that you might glance at the photo and see a baby think, even for a split second, “Mary Fons is pregnant!”

She is not.

But she is a baby. And she’s fussy. And she’s hungry. And she loves you.

And she’s out.

    Glad your ok. I was wondering and then maybe thought due to the storms here and internet and cable being out it was on my end. But we all have those moments in our lives where the days and weeks end up being a big blur. Sleep when you can and make sure you are eating properly.

    Good morning Mary, although you may or may not be up and going yet. Just wanted to tell you I finally did it and subscribed to Quiltfolk! I am now ever so slowly and thoughtfully reading my way through issue 03. What a beautiful magazine and what beautiful writing. I wanted to underline a phrase Michael McCormick said in the Introduction!

    Keep up the great work, Mary. We appreciate it.

    After only very recently finding your blog, I was downtrodden when you disappeared for so long. I’m glad you’re okay and I didn’t lose you. Your writing is so enjoyable I think that it’s how I would write if I could write. But I don’t or can’t or won’t, so you must! Love you. And I miss you and your mom, but mostly you, on TV. It was practically the only thing on TV that assumed we knew SOMETHING about sewing and quilting and got right down to business with each episode. But you are awesome at what you are doing now so march on and stay well.

    I subscribed to Quilt Folk during your visit to Sew n Save in Racine! I haven’t seen my copies yet, but I know I will love them as much as I love you!

    Yes, driving is tiring, then add in all you do when you get to your destination, then you must be pooped! When you mentioned you are in a big state, I can only hope that it is my Texas!!! How I would love a Quiltfolk from here!!! Time will tell!

    In the meantime, get some sleep!!! Good thing you love your job or you really would be miserable!!! Hang in there!

    Mary, I do not know how you manage to do it all! You are amazing! Can’t wait to see what treasures you are discovering in this “very large state” you are traveling through. I too just subscribed to Quiltfolk & will soon have all the ones I missed as well! What an absolutely GLORIOUS publication!!!!! Never ever seen anything like it!

    The main reason I subscribed was you Mary!!!! I have missed you since Quilty and so so very happy you landed at Quiltfolk. Nobody does it better than you!!!! Hugs!

    Honestly, Mary, I think we may share a few relatives (photo of anyone with a baby and it is either yours on the way or now I am in the retiring bracket grands or great grands. LOL) I am plotting a trip to home Depot soon to gather the makings of one of those large coffee tables capable of becoming the focal point of the room with the art books and what we used to call “coffee table” books arranged to invite selected guests to peruse and ooo and awe over our special interest magazines and books. Quiltfolk will be there along with a few print outs of some PaperGirl posts right next to my Over Washington oversize book.
