    I think I need a job

    Here is the quilt I just finished sewing today - Crossed Kayaks from Fons and Porter LofQ Sept 2011. I have also posted the Eleanor Burns Night and Day which I just got back from the quilters. I now have to do the binding. I have a baby quilt, Christmas Lap quilt and the two quilts I posted the other day at the quilters. I think the red/black quilt will have to wait awhile before it goes to the quilters. I also posted the back of N&D which was done in flowers and swirls. I thank you for looking

    You've been busy. Love the Crossed Kayaks.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Wow gorgeous! Your crossed kayaks is such a great example of how different a design can be based on the fabric choices. Beautiful!

    Well make your beautiful quilting your "job". Make all you like, what you like, and then try selling them. There are lots of craft shows around and even auctions. Your local guild might help you find places to sell them or visit your LQS and ask and leave pamplets with pictures or just words. This way it would be at your pace, when you want, and at least get back the $ it cost to do your hobby.

    Love the kayaks. You did a beautiful job. When I saw this in LofQ last fall, I knew I just had to make it but was hesitant with all the points. You've inspired me to consider this again. Thanks. Like the others as well.

    Beautiful Quilts! And I just have to tell janceejan how much I like her quote at the bottom of her reply. That would be me to the tee--Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand and chocolate in the other--that quote is priceless.
