Thanksgiving Weekend Happenings

ETSY SHOP IS FINALLY UP!

I have not posted anything in a while as I have been focused on getting my new Etsy store up. I thought I would never master taking decent digital photographs but I think I figured out some decent lighting for the mini kimonos. I added 24 handmade items to the shop (including 22 mini kimonos!) to get it started, more to come…

It it thanks to my wonderful sister that I finally got my Etsy store up – she kept pushing me to follow my dream through achieving special milestones (she “project managed” me!)

NEW QUILT BACK FROM QUILTER

One of my favorite things – to get a quilt back from my long-arm quilter, Betty Anne Guadalupe of Guadalupe Designs and complete the binding and enjoy the quilt. The name of pattern is “Aussie” and I came across it many years ago from the French quilting magazine Quiltmania.  The quilt featured in the magazine was made from Aboriginal prints, but I made mine from African fabrics.

African fabrics, patterm = Aussie from unknown issue of Quiltmania, pieced by Tierney Hogan, long-arm quilting my Betty Anne Guadalupe. Guadalupe Designs.
