What can I say... Carrie Nelson is a good friend, the kind that you can not chat with for a bit, but when you see each other you catch up like it was yesterday. Be that in an email or person. Carrie is the powerhouse designer behind Miss Rosie's Quilt Company.
She has a way with fabric... her color combinations, her block combinations.. they are genius I say.. genius! She has fun little quilts you can make in a blink of an eye... and she is FULL of organizational ideas. Really this woman can transform any container into something useful. And not only that.. something YOU will want. You don't know how many times I've gone searching out a 'Carrie Container'.. please.. it's pitiful.. I'm a fan girl
ahhh... look at this adorable Christmas Mantle Carrie has... love love love her style! And she has the most awesome studio that I hope to see IN PERSON some day... because I covet all the Pottery Barness of her abode.
Now let's get to know Carrie a bit better...

"My biggest quilting problem is lack of space!! When my middle kid went to college, I promptly turned her room into my sewing room. But then she graduated and moved back home to hunt for a job. I love having her here ^.^, but I really miss my sewing room:< Anyone know of anyone looking for an archivist? Or a librarian? She has a Master's degree in Library and Information Science.... and she's really good at what she does, and she's a hard worker! And then I could have my sewing room back.... "
