Hi Everyone. I have not been on for some time as I have been extremely busy. In December I was wondering if I had made a good choice in sewing from home and was it just a pipe dream. Suddenly in January I am swamped with orders. This if definately what I wanted but now I sometimes wonder how I will ever keep up with sewing and taking the time for the children as well. I am working on quilts but I am also getting lots of work in other areas. I even have a bridesmaid dress I will be doing for May. So exciting!

About a month ago I decided to bite the bullet and I purchased an embroidery machine. {Actually, my Mom and husband (yes, my husband) decided that I would} YEAH! I love it! I am new at using it so hopefully someone on here can help me with my questions I have periodically.

I am posting some pictures of some of the items I have recently made. You can also log onto my website or Facebook account to view more.

This is my fiest real quilt (not including rag quilts). A king size wolf quilt.

Custom order for a twin rag quilt with matching pillow sham. My own pattern. Was a little unsure at first with using only one colour but it turned out very classy

My daughters swimming bag. Large enough to fit two towels and all our items with a water resistant lining.

Glad to hear you are getting lots of business. I love them all but never have seen a rag quilt in one color and think it is gorgeous!

Great to hear your business is doing well. Love your work. The pink rag quilt is just perfect and the swim bag is gorgeous. Love the wolf quilt too. Hope you have many happy hours with your new machine.

Beautiful work. Love the pink one and I'm not a big pink fan.
