Facelift!

Exciting news!  We have decided to update and revive this blog for 2013.  It starts with a “facelift” – new colors, new layout, and more… and in the coming days and weeks we hope to blog regularly about etsy, crafting, quilting… and more!  Thanks for visiting, and we’ll see you again soon!

QUILTING QUILTING QUILTING

Yes I’ve been quilting. I had fun at quilt camp, started lots of projects. Now I’m in the process of quilting some of the projects. Here are 2 of the finished ones. I’m donating the black, white and red one to the Paige Fire Dept. for their raffle. You’ll have to buy some tickets to get this one.

MORE LACE

I’m sorting more lace. Got an idea to make flowers with the lace, so I may not sell it all.
I’m going to my quilters quild meeting tonight for a great trunk show. Can’t wait.

NEW QUILT

I want to share the quilt I just finished. I bought a kit which included all the material for the top, but I added a few extra pieces of my own. I used a piece of vintage fabric for the back, it’s a denum print full of stars so I thought it was a great choice. Then I machine quitled it. Check it out in my etsy shop.

DIY – “Do It Yourself” Fun Links

One of my most favorite things to do on etsy is search for patterns and DIY projects.  There are so many fabulous sellers, with ideas for projects I wouldn’t have even thought to try!

Here are a few ideas and links for you to check out… and maybe a project or two to start on for the New Year:  (items are linked by shop name)

Blogging in 2010…

One of my New Year’s goals is to blog more.  I want to share more about the crafting my mother is doing, and to share the projects I’m working on too.

I want to link up to fabulous artists and crafters at etsy.com and elsewhere.  I want a dialogue to happen around here – links to DIY projects, scrapbooking, crocheting, knitting, painting… whatever we feel like doing THIS week.

One of my MOST favorite things about having a shop at etsy.com is the sense of community.  There are so many wonderful people doing “their thing” at etsy – selling, buying, crafting… I’d love to talk about that more here on the ole’ blog.

What are YOUR goals for 2010?  Do you blog?  If so, post your link in the comments!
