my new alter ego

Conversation tonight with Ben on our walk:

Me: "....I like it because it's patchwork-y."

Ben: "Do they work at State Farm?"

Me: "????"

Ben: "Pat Schwirkey. It just sounds like someone who probably sells insurance at State Farm.

Me: "YES! That's totally my new alter ego!"

So yeah. Here's something patchwork-y made by the very un-insurance selling Pat Schwirkey.


You should get realtor-style business cards, with a picture of you in a blazer.

I love that, soo funny! If I were a quilter, I'd definitely start a company called Pat Shwerky. Cute bag, I love that too :)

Dear Ms. Schwirkey,
Your latest project is sure to appeal to a wide variety of client. The tailoring details are executed to perfection. As long as the premium costs are reasonable, this should be a great selling policy.
A satisfied insurance client!!!!

Looks great, Sarah!

Oh my gosh! I bought that bag from you a couple of weeks later, at the Kerrytown Book Fest in September 2011!

It's on my coffee table at this moment, filled with a knitting project - it's totally my favorite project bag!

I can't remember what made me Google your shop name a few minutes ago (except for the general Sunday laziness of preferring to surf the web instead of clean house) but what a great coincidence. Your blog is great, too!
