Last Day of the month

It's been a busy month I guess!

My etsy sales were up a little over last month (yes, today is still this month, so there's a chance for more sales!). I had one show which ended up not being so great - it was a 2 day show which I did excellent at last year, but it rained ALL DAY on Saturday, and when I went back to the room to check out Sunday's forcast, they were calling for the winds of Ike to hit. So I decided to forgo Sunday. And while it may have been ok in the morning, I'm pretty sure it was horrible in the afternoon - and the drive home would have been awful. So I'm glad that I didn't stay.

I'm finally going to finish my great-nephew's quilt that I started more than a year ago. I actually quilted it this weekend, so I just have to trim it down and bind it. That's easy! His fourth birthday is in October, and I'm only getting it done a year later than I said I would!

Today I made some small items and listed them on Etsy. The cell phone case and double zippered case that I'm adding here are a couple of those items.

I'm off to a conference on Sunday for four days, so I hope to get quite a bit done before I leave. Then the next weekend, I have another show on Sunday. I hope it is successful. One never knows!

Thanks for stopping by to say hi!

Talk to you again sometime (I'd say soon, but it would probably be a lie!)

It's a new month - where does the time go?

So, it's been more than 2 weeks since I updated last. I'm pretty sure no one knows this is here - would they read it if I updated more often?

I finally finished the chair covers that I had the picture of in the list entry. Laura called today and said they looked great in the customer's house - so that's good! I continued on in the cushion making business - I have a set of 6 cushions for a rattan sofa for my mother-in-law. I have them done except for stuffing them - I have to order the foam, and I have 4 small chair cushions to do also, so once I have the pattern for those ready, I will make a trip to the foam place and order it all. I'm a little worn out on the cushions right now! But I know there will be more in the future!

We took a long weekend over Labor day and got away - the weather was beatiful, but coming back to the grind is - well - yucky. That's just the best word I can come up with.

Lots of work to do, so I'm headed up to the sewing room now, and I'll put some pictures of what I'm working on in the next entry.

Getting ready for a show the 13-14th of this month....

Talk to you again soon!
