Today our featured blogger who is telling about our book it Michelle from Michelle’s Romantic Tangle.  I have never met Michelle in person but I have to say, that doesn’t mean she’s not at the top of my friend list.

Our friendship started a couple years ago when she wrote and asked me a question….From then on we’ve been back and forth sharing contacts, sharing life as bloggers and sharing about our families.

Michelle is a home school mom who spends many hours on the road chauffeuring her children to activities and  keeps the home fires burning taking care of her growing family.

I don’t know how many times Hubby comes and tells me I better get to bed because it’s late and I find myself saying -but I have to finish a note to Michelle.  Michelle was with us from the very beginning of the book.  I sent her pictures of the quilts and she’d give an honest opinion saying yes to some quilts and no to others.  Her advice was great to get as she know a lot about quilting.

Michelle hosts a really fun baby quilt linky party each Friday.  You can find it here.  She is an avid stitcher…with a passion for vintage embroidery patterns.

Michelle and I both love thrifting and love reading.  Michelle is always doing book reviews.  Both of us have a love of antiques too.

It’s often that I’ll write and say…look what I found thrifting…she always replies with the same enthusiasm that I feel.

Sometimes it makes me sad that we don’t live closer, that we’re both home-bodies and both have trouble leaving our families.  Michelle has offered that I should come out to Sisters one day as she isn’t all that far from there….Oh, I’ve been tempted.  Someday I might just surprise her and actually do it.

Michelle is the creator and designer of my favorite Moda Bake Shop quilt EVER-30’s Barn Raising.
