Well, I want to say that I’ve never proclaimed to be the sharpest needle in the pin cushion. And, this time I feel pretty dumb … I don’t know HOW, but I somehow got two very different ‘Jennifer’s mixed up … and I’m thankful that I have some followers who set me straight! Duh… but, this certainly does make some sense to me. Somehow, I got Jennifer Paganelli and Jennifer Chiaverini mixed up … could it be that they are both Italian? They both design gorgeous fabrics? You know… the name Paganelli is a pet name for Pagan, which means ‘village dweller’, and Chiaverini is a diminutive of Chiavaro, an occupational name for a ‘locksmith’. So I can see how I got confused. Afterall, I’m thinking ‘village dweller’ and ‘locksmith’ … in the end they both need a quilt! Does that work? No? Well, I thank you all for setting me straight, anyway!

I’m not going to elaborate here. OK – so I’ll elaborate some. Stash programs, Auto-ship programs, Christmas programs … woops … that’s it. Check it out!
