One project completed and now onto the next

I pieced a quilt for my new great-nephew and I've been procrastinating the actual 'quilting' portion - because it's not really my favorite thing to do, and I don't think I'm that good at it. But I forced myself today to finish it. Yeah!

So, now onto the next project. What shall I do?

I've been building up my inventory of my standard items, cell phone cases, zipper wallet/change purses, purses, and I added fabric lanyards to my list of items. Here are some examples:

I have tons of fabric (maybe not literally) and sometimes the hardest part is picking something new from the stash. And I have lots of scraps - so I think I'm going to play around with the scraps. A while back I made some fabric bowls

from scraps that I crazy-quilted and I think I'm going to do some more of the crazy patching. It's kind of fun - and it will reduce my overflowing container of scraps.

So stay tuned to see what I may come up with - it's not up my normal route, and it may be surprising! Better than all of that, it will be fun to do, I hope!

Until next time,

Mid-Summer Sale

Please check out my etsy shop - I'm having a mid-summer sale. Buy one item get a second item of equal or lesser value for hald price. The discount does not apply to shipping and cannot be applied to previous purchases or special orders.

I've added backpacks to my selection - here are a few samples:

I'm also making lanyards now - although I don't have any listed yet. You can look for a sampling of these in the next couple of weeks.

I'm working on getting my inventory ready for "Art on Fair" in Lancaster, Ohio on August 15, 10am - 7pm.

Hope to see you there!
