    It’s August 14th and I haven’t been able to find the “Sweet Pea” issue at Barnes and Noble yet, here in Illinois. I’ve traveled to 3 different ones on different days, is it sold out? Or am I too early? Please let me know, I’ve already ordered the fabric from Polstitches! Thank you, Rosemarie

    Thank you Joan, for answering. Your “Sweet Pea” I’m sure sold out everywhere!!! Everyone must love just the idea ‘sweet pea.’ But, then again, your design is superb!!! As, of course, we all know, they ALL are. I think on the 14th, I finally went to CSCollection’s website and back-ordered, I was so afraid of not getting one! Now, it just has to arrive. Can’t wait. Thank you , Rosemarie

    Joan, i got my issue yesterday from England….she is so beautiful! Talk about a neat, exciting pattern, to get you soo excited! My ‘sweet pea’ will love it when she’s older, so I will display at my home when its done! xxoo Rosemarie

    Here I am again….I hung my “Sweet Pea” up last night straight from the framers, and staring, I thought, “HOW did I do that???” But, the bigger question was and IS, “HOW did YOU do it?” She’s thrilling to have in the house.
    I thought she would be for Annabelle (2), but she last week she fell in love with ladybugs in books, sooo, you know what…she already loved it when I showed her your design!
    You already know how I feel about all you. So, “Sweet Pea” is MINE!! Thank you, and may God bless you. Always, Rosemarie

    Hi Rosemarie-
    She is one of my favorites! I am so glad you are enjoying her. This design was inspired by the Sweet Peas in my garden and their intoxicating fragrance.

    X Joan
