I discovered Bean-Pickle-Sprout during my first visit to the Etsy website. I was in love immediately. I bought her lovely bibs for my lovely baby and received one million and one complements. I ordered her coffee sleeves and go far out of my way to use them over and over again. Dish towels, check. Monogramed pot holder, check. I could go on and on. Her work is divine. Amy just so happens to be one of the sweetest ladies that I have come to know through the world wide web. I imagine her in Colorado, with a big cup of coffee, sewing and smiling all the while. You can get an eye full of her homemade goodness here. I highly recommend that you do. I loved reading her interview,I hope the same for you. Enjoy.
