Shop Samples

My manicurist has two adorable little boys, and I had some free time on Sunday morning, so I stitched up these shop samples to photograph for my Etsy store. She was very excited when I brought them in to her on Sunday afternoon. They were fun to do as most if the t-shirts I have…

Custom Order

I received an interesting custom order a few weeks ago on Etsy. My customer wanted to have a tote bag, with a zipper, made to store an antique game Baird. Dimensions were 23.5″ x 23.5″ with an inside pocket. The customer was flexible about fabric but wanted something black and white, and pink accents were…

Phew! He Liked Them!

I posted a few days ago about two customer order quilts that I made. My friend Tony that ordered them is gifting them to his niece for her newborn twin daughters. I made these late last year and finished them right after the holidays, but don’t usually post photos until I know the person has…

Cat on a Quilt

Maddie’s cat Jonas seems to like hanging out in my sewing room with us. I finished quilting this charity quilt this morning and trimmed it down. No sooner did unfold it and put it on the window seat to get a binding did Jonas jump up and make himself at home. He managed to get…

Waiting for Spring

I have really had enough of winter. Cold, snow, wind – and don’t even get me started on flight delays. Undecided to try to get in the spring spirit by making some Easter table topper. These table toppers make up so quick. A simple star block with a border, angled corners, and then another border…
