Sleepwell again… “New song in E” , and is an instrumental version of “Streetlights and Long Nights” – my favorite song of theirs. I love this one because it showcases the talent of the band without vocals. Available on iTunes.

Until 2009, Happy Quilting!!

    Hi Annie,
    Thanks for another great pod-cast! Love the Sleepwell songs!! They certainly are a very talented young men! The last song reminded me a little of The Outfield. They have a really good sound :0)
    You certainly did find ALOT of quilty goodness and, as always, thanks for sharing. Awesome stuff! I love to have it all! Your pod-cast is great to help me make my wish list :)
    Stash busting, I think is something we all deal with due to compulsive fabric buying :0) Here are a few of the ways I stash bust. I use whatever looks cute to make baby quilts for our group that donated them to our health department. We also do a birthday fat quarter exchange for whom ever wants to participate in the group. Due to my stash, I rarely have to buy any fabrics for this. Our group will bust our pink and white stash by making 12 1/2″ blocks for a lady in our group who makes them into quilts to donate to our local breast cancer clinic. I am also a big participant in out ACS Relay for Life and will make something to donate to that. I also have plans to whip up a bunch of pink pot-holders to sell in my salon, with all the proceeds going to the Relay for Life. Just need more time for that to happen :)

    Annie – I’m not through the whole Podcast yet but had to comment, WOW – the song is fantastic (the first one, haven’t gotten to the second yet)! That has Hit written all over it! You must be VERY proud. Happy New Year!

  3. Desiree (in Norway) says:

    Hi Annie! I am a little behind on listening to all the podcasts on my iPod, but I am listening to all your programs first :-) . Like Denise before me, I haven’t heard the whole program yet (listened to it in the car on my way to work this morning) but I just had to comment on the first Sleepwell song! I LOVE it! Definitely wouldn’t mind hearing more from them through your programs.
