Newest Family Member

Here is the newest member of our family. We have not decided on a name yet. She is a 6-month old Ragdoll kitten. So far, this is all she has done today, sleep. We were surprised that she and my 5-year-old Shih Tzu are getting along fine. They aren't even fazed by each other at all.

Nothing happening on the sewing front today. I did put my circle quilt in a contest on Facebook. So, I wanted to ask everyone, if you will, please click here to vote for my quilt. THANKS!

Getting Busy

Watching the ball drop in NYC on television really made me want to go visit NYC again. So, my sister and I have decided to go the week of spring break, kid-free, for about 4 days. The only problem...I have no money. I don't work. My husband says if I can come up with the money on my own (not using his paycheck because it pays all the bills and not using any tax money that we may or may not get back) then I can go. What's a girl to do? GET BUSY!

I've had an Etsy shop for a couple of years, but never really kept it stocked. I've sold a few things here and there, but now it's time to get busy. I have added a few quilts and rag bags to the shop. Here is a picture of the new items. I've also added my Etsy shop to the right side of my blog for a quick look at what is availble. If you click on the pictures there (or below) it will take you to my shop.

Hello 2012! Can you believe it? 2011 flew by. So many things have happened this year, the most memorable being that I closed my tanning salon in August after 7 1/2 years. Now I'm a full time housewife (I use this term loosely, LOL) and mom.

This year I'm hoping to get more sewing/craft projects done, including these owl potholders. They are soooo cute! I went to the fabric store today and picked out the fabric (like I don't have enough at home to choose from). I also have a few ideas for different quilts I would like to do this year, including a table runner and table topper.

Of course, I should have put a lot more thought into it before now, but I have been thinking about doing some sort of block of the month or sew-a-long maybe. Haven't quite decided yet, but I will let you know the minute I decide.

I hope 2012 finds you and your family happy and healthy! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
