There is a lot going on currently in my sewing room. 

Most of the weekend I spent time making many more potholders.  I am very blessed to say I have been wiped out of many that were in my current inventory. 

The rest of this week I am working on a very special project for a charity very close to my heart.  There will not be many posts from me this week.  I have LOTS of details to work on. 

Don’t forget about the potholder giveaway over at Rachel’s Cottage House, you have until the end of the week.

100 Posts…A Reflection August 26, 2010

The number is finally here and I feel like it took forever.  This has been a very rewarding process.  In addition to writing on my blog, I have been fascinated with QuilterBlogs.com.  There is so much inspiration for creativity on there.  Thank you everyone for sharing. 

Where do I go from here?

First and foremost…I am not buying any fabric during the month of September.  I have bought enough recently to start my own store.  Actually I’ve been buying up fabric to work on projects, fill my Etsy store, and have products ready for craft shows.  That’s where this blog has taken me…small business owner.

I love my hobby enough to share with the world and try to do something with it.

Recently, a couple of other bloggers have contacted me about doing a giveaway.  Great, LOVE to!!  When I’m on their site, I’ll make sure to let you know. 

I still want this blog to be about the creative process, how I pick fabric, what I choose to do with it, and the final design.  It holds me accountable for getting things done.  Sharing with the world makes me very nervous, but it is rewarding. 

There are things that I haven’t done, like continued with my charity quilts.  I have so many custom orders and other ideas, I will get to those in the coming months.

This blog has been and will continue to be my creative outlet.  Hopefully the next 100 posts will not take as long as the first 100.

 

Project Modern August 20, 2010

Good Friday morning.  We have a winner on Chick’s new collar…Cherry Flower.  She is just so excited she’s passed out on her favorite chair right now from her elation.  Nope, she’s saving up her energy to torment us later. 

I saw this announcement this morning and thought I would share.  Wonder what the challenge will be?  Like I don’t have enough on my plate already.

I was playing around on Etsy this evening and noticed I have been featured in my second Treasury.  It made my day. 

Also the whole Treasury features articles made from the Moda Frolic line. 

See below for the new Treasury.

I have asked Facebook and now I’m asking my readers.   My dog has destroyed her pale pink big box store collar, it’s not even pink anymore. 

Please help me pick a new collar for my active hound…Chick.  She is a very unique dog that is very active.  I normally don’t talk about my dogs on here, but I LOVE fabric. 

Check out the wonderful fabric selections you can get on these dog collars.  As I was searching Etsy I found some of my favorite fabrics as I was searching…Amy Butler, Moda, Michael Miller, Andover.  Tonight I made a Treasury on Etsy to showcase a few of the collars I liked.  Comment on here or on Etsy with your favorite.  I will make my selection on Friday. 

Let’s support some artists/craftsmen and get Chick something awesome.

Loving the water.

 

She did not want to get out of the water.

 

Off To The Wilderness I Go August 13, 2010

Hello weekend…almost.  We are camping this weekend.  Not really roughing it, but definitely going to be out in nature. 

Is it bad that I’m bringing sewing to work on?  Of course not.  Our camping counterparts might think otherwise.  It will be a good time to get some hand sewing and cutting of squares accomplished.  Look for updates on Monday.
