Although we still have snow in the yard and ice on the lake, I’m hopeful that warmer weather is just around the corner. There are some positive signs: the robins are singing and the sun is shining longer each evening. My hopefulness translated into some spring cleaning in my sewing room, which meant a restocking of my Etsy shop!
I’ve been holding onto some much-loved charm packs, jelly rolls, bolt-end fabric and other bundles. I decided to let go of some treasured merchandise and list it in my Etsy shop. I hope you’ll find that special something you’ve been looking for! Here’s a little peek of some of my listings:
I’ve also been busy working on a new quilt. I’m making the “Wayne & Gordie” pattern from the book Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites by Carrie Nelson. This nine-patch quilt uses the strip piecing method, so it goes together quickly. For fabrics, I’ve selected dusty reds and blues from some favorites Moda designers: Sweetwater, Lella Boutique and 3 Sisters. Don’t they play nicely together?
Later this week I’ll be picking up two other quilts from my longarm quilter friend, Barb, of Quilts on Broadway. I’m excited to see them, bind them, and share them with you soon.
I hope you all are experiencing good health, good weather, and good sewing!
