Now that I have all my custom orders caught up with I really have to hit it hard this weekend to work on a quilt that has been invited to be published in a book. This is sooooo exciting for me. I could not wait for the long work week to end so that I could come home and get started. Then once I got home I didn't have the energy to even walk into my sewing room, besides it was cold. Instead we had dinner, kept the fire going (which is great for the single digit temperatures we are having here in the Ozarks), my son and I watched one of my favorite TV programs "Numbers" and then listened to NPR music while playing Mancala. Now he is asleep on the couch and I am getting ready to call it a night so that I can have sweet dreams of working on my book-quilt project tomorrow. I want to take photos of the steps and can get better pics in the daylight. The PLAN is to post the pics each evening that I work on the quilt so as to share my excitement. After this book-quilt is done I've got a couple more custom orders to work on, which is great for my simple dreams of sewing, but not so good for my etsy shop because I've not had the time to make new items to post.

Keep your eye out for the quilt photos.

reaching up to touch bottom.....

I've just finished alterations on a wedding dress, brides maid dress, suit pants and made 5 brides maids clutches for my sisters sister-in-laws wedding. Fabric that was used to make the clutches was left over from bridesmaid dresses that I made for my sisters wedding 12 years ago and the flowers were made from the fabric I cut off while shortening the bridesmaids dress that I just echo clutch.
Now on to a custom quilt for a book, and I have to hit it hard to meet the deadline, then on to a custom order quilt and a bit more alterations. Sometime after all of this and the day job I hope to update the shop.
