I hope you find time to do things you love, things that bring you joy. For me, that's quilting and sewing, and selling what I make, and sharing what I know.
My recent sales were for a custom Pirate shirt, and a Greek Flag quilt. These were finished and shipped to Canada (shirt) and Wisconsin. The flag was a Christmas gift for her friend. She let me know she got it, and that the gift was "priceless". I'm so honored that my work is appreciated.
Here are some pictures of the shirt and the flag.
Each flag comes out a little differently. I think it's cool how it looks like it's blowing in the wind, That's the part that changes. After I make the top, I chop it back up into strips, then sew the strips randomly back together. I do make sure the edge will work (nice curve, not too jagged) but the size of the strips and shape of the curve is random. That's fun!
My current, almost finished work in progress is my snowflake quilt. I have to finish the borders, and put the binding on. You've seen some pictures of it in recent posts. Here's a detail of the quilting, with Superior's Metallic in Silver. This thread is behaving better. No broken needles.
This is the top, before quilting. I'm having fun making 8 pointed snowflakes and swirls and feathers to accent the blocks.
I'm pretty sure I'm keeping this one. I love it too much to list it. Finding the fabrics with silver accents was fun, and not easy. I collected for a while before I had enough of prints that worked together to make this design. So, watch for other snowflake fabric items in my store. I may make a second one, if I can find similar fabrics or colors. I had seen a similar design online, but I changed it a little.
Watch for a blog about Moonlight Snowstorm soon! And new items to my store, soon, too.
I'm linking up with Quiltsy's WIP.
