Weekend Fun & Amazing New Sale
Wow! What a weekend! I can’t believe what I accomplished in 48hrs — 2 quilt tops, prep work on our CRAZY Holiday Sale and even attended a book signing. Whew, I can’t believe it’s Monday already.
The Book Signing
First, the book signing. This week mark a monumental event for a good friend, Starlet Reid. We’ve know each other for almost 6 years now. When I first met she had dreams of starting a book and 6 years later her dreams became a reality. She is truly an inspiration to me and for everyone out there dreaming of something big and desiring to leave a legacy. Her book, “I’m Changing: Friendships, Drama and Oh…The Comma!,” is about a young middle school lady trying to understand her changing body amidst a new school, cliques and lip gloss. I’m in the middle of reading it now, it and brings back so many good, bad and hilarious memories.Especially, the main character, Tina, has to purchase her first bra. If you’re interested in learning more about the book, it’s available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Im-Changing-Friendships-Drama-Oh/dp/1432740261/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1290444845&sr=8-2). And did I mention, one of the character’s is named after me? Check out page four 😉
The Quilt Tops:
After the book signing, I went home and sewed…..and sewed. The end result was two fabulous quilt tops — one in Fandago and another made entirely with Kona Solids.
I love them both but I have to tell you, Daisy Chain is quickly becoming my favorite pattern. The particular quilt top was cut and sewn in two weeks. Yes! Two weeks flat. That’s pretty impressive for a women that works a full time job, operates an online store and sews whenever possible. I’m actually pretty dang proud if me, if I do say so myself 🙂
The second quilt, from Kona Solids, has been months in the making and it’s only 45in square. I’m not sure why but these colors just didn’t inspire me to sew as much as I’d hoped they would. Though to be honest, this really isn’t my usual style. I generally lean more on the “fresh” quilting side, rather than the “Modern Quilting.” Fabric patterns and cheerful colors just motivate me to sew and keep going until the project is finished. Perhaps, it’s because I love the watching different colors zoom through my machine. Yeah, I’m a little fabric obsessed like that. Hopefully, this quilt will find a good home. I’m going to post in my store for sell within the next two weeks after it is quilted. It will be my first quilt officially for sale.
The Crazy Holiday Sale:
While I was redecorating the craft room, I notice something. I have entirely too much fabric left in stock. So, starting Black Friday, FreeSpirit Fabric, books and patterns are on sale to make room for 2010 fabric. I’m pretty sure there will be something to catch your eye. Be sure to check the store early November 26th.
