    "Susan is the Mama with the mostest! She runs the best swap on flickr!!! I met Susan through DQS and the 6-12" inch Mini Quilt Swap. She was one of my first flickr contacts and friends.

    I love seeing all the wonderful projects that Susan's working on! Whoever her partners are for all the different swaps are truly fortunate! I'm am so happy to know Chickenfoot and count her as a friend!!!"

    "Susan is quirky, funny, creative, and has a good eye for color. She's the queen of "re-thrifting". (Just look at the treasures she's saved and restored). and I think maybe she's alittle crazy!! :-) A good cyber friend!"
