Sewing and sewing...

I've been preoccupied with sewing for an Arts & Crafts fair.  Fair was this weekend and finished lots of stuff. We also raised money for Camp Hope - http://www.chrisnealfarm.com. I made a quilt which will be raffled off this coming weekend.

A little project...

My niece asked if I could make some more burp cloths for her baby, my grand-niece.  Sure!  Found some leftover flannel, bought a couple inexpensive towels, and viola! New burp cloths! She did ask me not to make the "notch" for the shoulder that I'd done for the other burp cloths I made her. So both sides are straight.



Stashbusting:

1 and 1/2 yards of fabric
1 spool of leftover thread

Since people found out I can sew (and quilt)...

I've been doing some commissioned sewing and quilting!






A customer gave me an apron and asked me to make 3 copies of the style in Christmas fabric. She left the choice of fabric up to me. I made 3 identical aprons from Mary Englebreit's Christmas Cookies fabric.

I also made 3 identical aprons from Robert Kaufmann's Christmas Recipe Card Collection.  The customer now has two choices. The remaining aprons will go into my Etsy shop. 

Stashbusting:

4 spools of various threads leftover from other projects.

I've been busy!

First, I'd like to announce my new Etsy shop!  YAY!  I finally did it!

I have spent most of the last 3 months sewing and quilting to fill the Etsy shop and to finish up some projects for family and friends. I decided to tally up what I've made so far this year (since January 10). Whew!  I've been busy!  Current tally:

3 crocheted afghans (1 is in the Etsy shop)

2 embellished towels
23 microwave bowl cozies (12 are in the Etsy shop)
1 apron
1 table runner
3 Quilts Of Honor of my own dsign
10 panel Quilts Of Honor
10 dust covers with accessory pockets (4 covers went to the Etsy shop)
7 tote bags
7 quilts (for the Etsy shop)
2 fabric baskets (for the Etsy shop)
2 terrycloth bunnies

WHEW!  And there's still more to come!
