podcast interview

I’m a big fan of  Abby Glassenberg’s  Podcast : While She Naps.  I love having things to listen to while I’m doing mountains of sewing and her  show is one of my favorites.  She asked me to be on a while ago and I took a leap and said yes. It’s definitely something way out of my comfort zone but I’m happy I did it.  Abby is a great interviewer and we had fun.  We talk about creativity, process, sewing, selling patterns, and all sorts of other things. You can listen to the episode here and below is a quote that I love  from a book we talked about:

“Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper. Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure.They’re huge and abstract. And they’re very beautiful.”

  1. It was such a treat to listen to your interview today. You have no idea how much of an inspiration you have been to me over the years. I ordered my bird pattern and can’t wait to make one!

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed the podcast, hearing you talk about your struggles and inspirations. This is why I love your blog, the raw process of finding art and making art. Thank you for sharing your journey!

  3. Therefore, eat blueberries whenever you get a chance in any form you like.

  4. Just recently (2018) caught up with this – and it brought back a lovely memory for me – I saw the Beatrix Potter ballet ‘live’ when I was about seven – and yeah – like Ann – life changing!
    Great interview…
