Great Weekend

The weekend started with mailing the Hebrew Alphabet Quilt and then Saturday afternoon and evening the kids came over for a work night. We’re starting to gear up making for craft fairs. Mary jumped on the sewing machine, while Ashley worked on making fantastic signs and Alicia working on new spreadsheets and Facebook. We even had Destiny stringing beads. I played with the alcohol ink and fabrics.

The men gave their ideas from the living room while watching movies.

Today I cleaned everything up from last night then started working on my March APQ Challenge. This month I was to make one of the Granddaughter’s quilt, but she hasn’t chosen what she wants so instead of that I am quilting the top of a quilt I started 2 years ago.

This has been a great weekend, even if it snowed. I am now looking for ideas for the craft fairs. I need to make my list of must do’s so you have a great day.

  1. So sweet, love hearing about a family working together. Beautiful quilt on the wall too. I saw something really cute on YouTube the other weak where they take corks and carve out the middles making then hollow, then they put little plants in them and turn the corks into magnets. I think they would make nice craft sale inexpensive items.


  2. Is that quilt on the wall done with alcohol inks? it’s very pretty. I wish someone would do crafts with me. That might encourage me to work a bit more. I’m curious as to what does actually sell anymore. I’m in the PNW and we aren’t seeing a whole lot of different items here. I know it seems to need to be useful as we are all saturated with dust catchers. Curious as to what moves there, I should talk to my cousins in the KC area.


    1. What sells for me are microwave bowl cozies, tea towels, baby quilts and lap quilts. It is really crazy, one person may not want to pay $30 for 8 teatowels, but will spend it on a crocheted doll my daughter makes. Depending on the town I sell lots of homemade candy. The town I live in makes you make it in a commercial kitchen and so I don’t sell it here, but the surrounding areas. If I spend money on something I want it to be useful.

      1. Thanks. I need to get back to the bowl cozies too. People are funny with what they will pay for. I want useful things too but am buying nothing these days. Have it all.
