Who's Who?

Have you ever Googled yourself?

I'm not as Internet savvy as many people think. I do what I have to and muddle my way through most of that. The other day a fellow shop owner suggested that I should be checking myself out online on a regular basis, just to insure that everything that is said is actually true. To quote her exact words "Google yourself baby, you will never know what you are up to if you don't". I decided to give it a try. Some of the things I found were pretty funny.
This is not me.

Her name is Karen Montgomery and according to her bio she was featured in a Star Trek episode. I've never met Spock.

I'm not in this photo either,

The caption reads "Queen Karen Montgomery"
Anyone that knows me knows that I never want to be the queen of anything. Princess maybe. Queen never.

I didn't write this book. Karen Montgomery has authored a mystery series.

Not THIS Karen Montgomery, but it might be kind of fun to read them anyway.

We are getting warmer.......

This photo is of teacher Karen Montgomery and her class in front of the quilt that they made to honor the history of their town. At least that Karen and I have something in common.

I was thrilled to find this photo from a quilt show in the UK. The ladies are sitting in front of my Ashley quilt. The caption says that they ordered a kit designed by Karen Montgomery - me!

I love this photo best. The quilter used my Jungle Fever pattern and her own assortment of fabrics to create the quilt. I especially liked the comments she made about how much she enjoyed making the quilt and how well written the instructions were. Yea!
The photo is pretty low res. You may not be able to tell that the flowers at the bottom of the photo are actual flowers in her garden, they aren't part of the quilt. Isn't that beautiful?

It was fun to see what other Karen Montgomery's are up to and it was even better to see what people are doing with my patterns and fabrics.
It has inspired me to start a customer album on our website. If you have a photo of something you have made from one of my patterns or fabrics, send me a photo and your comments and we would love to include it!

Well there were 92 pages, (no I didnt look at them all)of NOT me. Apparently there is a published poet by the same name, and an MD in Chicago that is an anti-aging specialist (maybe I should contact her) I finally showed up on page 25. It was fun to find the businesses that carry my fabric. Ever heard of
