|The next day was THE REALLY BIG DAY!! I started off in Rhonda Pierce's office -- admiring the last year's worth of Inspired To Sew magazine!!|
In many cases, my friendship came before the magazine interview...Mary Mulari, Nancy Zieman, Eileen Roche, Gail Yellen, Joanne Ross...and, in many other cases, they became friends AFTER the interview. Mark Lipinski, Mary Fons, Angela Wolf, Jenny Doan, Weeks Ringle...well -- you can see it -- right...
I'm just sayin' -- I LOVE MY JOB..!!
