Tis the Season!

No, not that season. Cold and flu season. I think these tissue holders are so cute so I made a bunch of them this weekend. I figure they will be good to fill space at craft shows, but more importantly will be good stocking stuffers this Christmas. Plus, as an added bonus they are a…

Christmas Game Books

The notebook cases with pens that I started making last year have been a hit on both the Etsy shop and at craft shows. I have been noticing that people of all ages buy them. I’ve seen grown women by them to use for sketching and journaling, and I’ve seen parents buy them for kids.…

Going to a Good Home

This Christmas quilt just sold on Etsy and is off to a good home. I started making it as a quilt for our family, but as I worked in it knew I would sell it as I don’t really have a home for it and have another holiday quilt in the works for us. I…

The Joyful Quilter

I would like to think that I am a joyful quilter, but today I am talking about The Joyful Quilter, a lovely shop in Glenville, NY. Maddie and I are upstate visiting our good friends, the Grays, to celebrate Zack’s 14th birthday. As you would expect. Any time Jen and I get together there is…

Pashminia!

Well, my worlds are colliding again… I woke up feeling ill with a sore throat and low grade fever so I decided to go back to sleep and go in a little late as I am flying to London tonight and back tomorrow and really don’t want to get sick. Good thing I did as…

Nyack Street Fair

Today we are at the Nyack Street Fair in beautiful Nyack, NY. It has been a beautiful day with great weather and we enjoyed the day. We reorganized our booth, yet again, to try to keep embroidery together, baby quilts together, and home decor somewhere near each other. I am not sure how well it…

SCALE + COLOR + VISION

I have written before about how much I love The City Quilter in NYC. What I don’t think i’ve done is written about how much I love their sister entity, The Art Quilt Gallery. The Art Quilt Gallery is essentially that, an art gallery featuring amazingly beautiful quilts by amazingly talented artists. Their current exhibition…

A Teddy Bear for Lexi

I got a lot done this weekend but just finished the last of 22 custom orders from the last two craft shows. I rarely get to do a whole lot during the week, so it was a nice treat to sew tonight. There were quite a few tea towels, two baby quilts, and some baby…

The Holly Club

I finished a custom order from my Etsy shop yesterday for a group called The Holly Club. It is a women’s club and the president of the group ordered 15 embroidered tea towels to give as gifts at their next meeting. I had about a week to complete the order but ended up doing all…
