November

Hello Friends!

The last few months have been very busy.  I wish I could say it's all been fun and a lot of sewing has happened, but that is not the case.  My father got very ill again in September and had to have surgery.  He is doing much better but still not where he was.  And mom tore a tendon in her rotator cuff.  She had surgery a couple weeks ago.  I have been busy helping them.

Whenever a had a free minute at home I was sewing though.  I am working on multiple things and I need to just do one at a time.  I have sewing ADD.  I just get bored too easily and move on to the next project.  One of my goals for the new year is to finish all projects before I start anything new.  I will really try.  Is there something you do to motivate you to finish as you go?

Last time we talked I mentioned my Etsy store.  Well, on Friday I received an email from Etsy congratulating me on my first sale.  It's been 2 months with the store open with nothing so I did not believe my email.  But when I opened it and discovered I actually had sold on of my quilts, it will so exciting!  My friends and family have been so supportive and I can't thank them enough.  My son says I need to sew every moment I can and fill my shop with quilts to sell.  I wish I had more time to do just that.  So I will work on them as much as I can and we will see what happens.  Below is a picture of the quilt that sold.


I am trying to decide what to make for my coworkers for Christmas.  I have a couple ideas just not sure what I should do.  Do you have any fun easy sewing ideas?

I have joined a few IG quilt a longs or QAL.  I am working on some Union flag blocks now and hope to start a quilt from the book Sunday Morning Quilts.  My friend Izzy and I are going to work on Missing U from the book.  Anyone else want to join along?

Blessings
Amy
