Welcome to the Foyer
When I asked my husband, who is always full of good ideas..., what to call this little place were we could get together and chat, get caught up on news, throw around ideas and just socialize a bit, he suggested the foyer. I thought it was perfect. After all, isn't that where we all go to chat. Anyways, I plan on updating this as often as I can with news and responses to your comments.

January 7th, 2005 - Happy New Year!!!
March 1, 2004 - 1000 patterns, Can you believe it. I can't. It's been alot of work, but I like what I do, so I guess I am one of the lucky ones. My goal is still to get all the Temples done, but since I have been flooded with other requests, I had to put the Latter Day Squares out. Of course, some of them, especially the Seagulls was instant inspiritaion when I saw the materials. Thanks to all of you who have encouraged me and supported me with your kind e-mails. And thanks to all of you who bought one of my first 1000 patterns!!!
July 1, 2003 - Well, we're all moved in. Not unpacked, just moved in. I have a feeling I will be unpacking for the next year. How much junk I have collected!!! I have desperatly kept up with the orders although the designing went on hold for a while. I did get Cardston done for all those anxious Canadians. I hope you like it.
My new address is 3211 Blue Jay, Corinth TX 76210. Please let me know if you have had any problems with the mail. I sent two test letters to myself to see the the forwarding was working and neither one has shown up yet. Just make sure you send mail orders to 3211 Blue Jay and we'll both be alright. I hope to start keeping up with more consistency. The last three months have been doozies. I'm waiting for my life to get back to normal, but my friends say that'll never happen. Optimists!
9/2002 - Over Labor Day weekend, hubby and I took off for a fun little trip. We dropped the kids off and the g-parent's house and went on what we called the heartland temple tour. (Maybe some of you saw us, zipping in to your temple parking lot in a little blue Saturn. Hubby calls it BYU blue.) We saw both Memphis and Nashville Temples. Then buzzed up to Louisville, KY. Saint Louis, MO was next. That was beautiful and a nice change of scenery. We had to take a break to go up the great Arch. I didn't know you could go in it!!! That set a us a little behind schedule, and we almost took Winter Quarters off the itinerary. But I was so glad we kept it on. What a wonderful experience that was. It was worth the extra hours. We hit OK City on the way home. That was Nine States in 3 days. I have a very obliging husband. You can look forward to these temple designs as soon as I get the pictures developed. AND, once I've done one of the small temples that will lead to many more small temples, like Edmonton....
10/02/02 - I was wondering what if anyone is interested in a different view of the Manti Temple?? I had a friend tell me that she thinks the side view that the pagent is on is the more recognized view. Let me know what do you think? E-mail Me
Enrichment Nights - I have been asked about Enrichment nights. Although it will probably take more than one night to complete, I still think it is a great idea. And since Enrichment night would necessitate the purchasing of many patterns, one for each individual, contact me if you have a group of 15 or more and we'll work out a group discount.(The same applies to quilt guilds!)
11/04/02 - Things slowed down a little bit last week...I had to sew some halloween costumes! But I'm back in the saddle again (Texas Humor)
I've tried three different views of the San Diego Temple. It's a doozie, I tell you. But you guys want it so I will keep working on it.
Thanks for all your recent orders, they keep me motivated. I sure would like to post some of your projects in the gallery, not just mine.
11/26/02 Well, it's finally done, San Diego. Whew! I think I am going to take a little break and enjoy some holidays. I will be catching up on some of the little temples that I have a basic pattern for. I will individualize some, Memphis, Nashville, Louisville, OK City, Raleigh NC, Columbia SC and a few others I've been to. But I will also have the basic pattern, so if I can't keep up with your reguests, you can use the basic pattern and adapt it for your own temple.
I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving. See you in December!
2/17/03 Okay, so a friend of mine told me I really need to update the foyer. A lot has been happening. First off, Temple Tour #2. My husband was in Atlanta on business and I was able to tag along. That is when I took the pictures for the North and South Carolina, Birmingham and Atlanta Temples. That really helped me get motivated to do the small modern temples. They have turned out quite fun and easy, except Oklahoma City. It is a little tricky with the courtyard, patio thing out front.
It's been a while. I hope you all had a Happy Easter. We are looking forward to the end of school now. Things are changing for my family, we are moving. I am telling you this because you might be wondering about the change of address. To ensure, that things don't get TOTALLY messed up, I went and got a post office or "Personal Mail Box". The new permanent address will be posted in a couple months. But this should only affect mail in orders, it might take a day or two longer. Just make sure all orders go to the Bethany address. I will still be filling orders as usual both Paypal and mail-in's.
