Meeting Day And So Much More! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and going. I had breakfast with Katt. Then off to Cherrill's. She wasn't going to the meeting because she had a lot she wanted to do. So, I headed over to our meeting.



We had a good meeting. Only 5 of us made it, but that's understandable. We decided to have a Christmas meeting at my house on the 18th with potluck. Should be fun! We were talking about having an exchange. Not sure if everyone is for that, but I think that would be awesome.


I bought this from a gal ...

Crazy Quilt Journals And Greeting Cards from Kitty and Me Designs

I've been thinking for  quite awhile now, about opening a Cafe Press Shop and using some of my crazy quilt pieces on greeting cards and journals.

It's taken me all day to just to figure out the site and how to list products.  Not nearly as easy as Etsy and Ebay but I finally figured it out!  I still have some work to do but I have a good start now!

I started with some of my Christmas projects thinking that someone might want to have some unique Christmas Cards!  I'm going to order some for myself ...

I was working on one of my studio shirts when I found the first article by The Postal Museum and later found the Guardian article as I continued looking for more of Rosalind Wyatt's work.  Looking for mail art inspiration and found stitching inspiration.

What have you been up to lately?

Pumpkin — not pie ;) from Quilting and More...

This is Enchanted Pumpkin, designed by Claudia Dinnell. Can’t you just see it getting ready to become Cinderella’s carriage?  I used my wonderful Bernina 780 to appliqué, embroider, piece, and quilt it. The embroidered appliqué alone took about a dozen re-hoopings, which always makes me nervous. In fact, I did make a placement mistake, but […]

Sew What? from ... Cat Patches

Good morning, loved ones and friends. It's certainly good to be back in Internet Land. The day doesn't get off to a good start until I've had my little bloggy chat with y'all. There's just a little bit more I need to tell you to be caught up, and then we'll be ready for more sight-seeing. As I mentioned in yesterday's post, we took an extra day at our last location of Hillsville, Virginia. We'll be doing more of that...trying to take a day at least once per week where we ...
