Sandy Raw and Uncut. I didn't edit this episode so I apologize for any sniffles or squeaks you may hear. Fortunately, you can't catch my cold through the airwaves. In this episode (thanks to Nonnie!) all y'all weighed in with your thoughts on reading quilt magazines and quilt books in their print version versus digital, and then I give my two cents.
This topic was spurred by this blog post sent to me by Nonnie: http://blog.caronmosey.com/2013/01/the-future-of-quilting-books-and.html
Leave your comments here to enter in the giveaway sponsored by Sarah in Houston (yay, Sarah!).

Points awarded for creativity and entertainment value! Comments must be received by or on Sunday, February 17.
Welcome to episode 109, in which I announce a new feature of my podcast, do a little Sandy Update, and share what listeners have said about perfectionism in quilting.
And so we begin our second hundred! Woot! In this episode, I share my current mistake-ridden project and use that as a springboard to share listener's stories about their own work-my-last-nerve projects. I also talk about my discovery of the circular sewing attachment, a review of #LDSI, and an announcement of upcoming fun and frivolity!
Listener Laura shared this link to her own blog post with a story of a mistake-ridden project: http://sewingoutofmycomfortzone.blogspot.com/2012/04/coping-strip-blues.html.
Woot! A Sandy Update is followed by sharing all the really, really wonderful comments y'all left for the 100th episode giveaway. Some of you were very funny, some of you were extremely profound, some of you made me choke up a little bit. Little did I know what I was starting by asking that simple question: What would you like 100 of in your life? Thanks for listening for the last 100 episodes, and I hope you'll stick with me (and maybe invite some friends!) for the next 100!
The real episode 99! I'm back from vacation and have some quilty updates, life updates, and a whole lotta talk about books.
