Whew…

Been hand sewing my fingers to the bone lately.

Really trying to stock up my etsy shop even if it is just one item at a time. I got these two onesies posted up there today. YAY! I have quite a few of them stocked up, and am excited to see if they receive a good response.

I have plans to make some pillows that look like the quilt label I made for the MAN’s quilt, hopefully to sell on etsy and at bus shows.

I also got a birthday block for the group done too. One more March one, I am going to try to get it done on Sunday.

Kitty Quilts

I’ve been so good about being productive on my time off. Its time to do what I’ve been talking about doing for so long. Getting sewing, using all this fabric I have, and getting stuff up in my etsy shop. Jennifer from http://www.sewhooked.com made me a banner ages ago and I have been such a lazy bum about sewing stuff for the shop. IT WAS TIME.

After I finished my first of 12 in 2012 I was inspired to continue sewing. My husband and cats came up with this idea, based on how much they love his quilt. I figured I would get started on making kitties quilts of their own. Rupert hopped right on it the second it hit the floor.

First Two Completed Quilts Ever!

I gave my first two completed quilts ever yesterday to two soon to be parents of twins (a boy and a girl). The soon to be new father has been friends with my boyfriend for over 20 years.

They twins nursery has had a monkey mural painted in it, so what better than monkey quilts.

I just can’t believe I actually got them done on time. They are totally machine sewn and while I would have liked to have at least done some hand quilting, I just didn’t have the time. I had a couple of really really late nights making sure these were done in time for the shower.

The label for Tyler’s quilt. I designed the paper pieced banana on my own.
