Motivation

We've found a farm that we'd really like to buy, and have been trying to think of everything we can get rid of to come up with enough for the downpayment.  It may be a big stretch to convince the bank we can do it, but one thing I realized I could do- was finish up all these little projects I have laying around, and sell them on Etsy.com.  Boy has it been a good motivator to finish things!

I'm still not sure I'm going to let go of this, it would be fun to hang in the sewing room.







Breanna wanted in the photo since her PJ's were pink too.  =)





Sure is fun getting all these little projects finished up!


Awhile back I squared up my 1/2-square triangles, and am still working on getting a small quilt top together.


My points actually matched up pretty well on the pinwheels, they are fun little blocks.


The shirt quilt has taken back-burner till I get some major motivation, I was having trouble getting the triangles sewn together with accurate points.



It will be about twin size or double once the borders are added.  Levi is already claiming it.  =)


The previous gap is because I decided this fabric just didn't go.  It's close, but with the other it kindof looked greyish.


I also have been working on another project, but no photos- hopefully more this week.  All I need to do is the binding to be finished.  With all this nice weather, I haven't spent as much time sewing the past few days!

Lots of cute stuff! What's your Etsy name? I really like that shirt quilt. I never would have thought of using dress shirts for a quilt, but it looks cool!

I love the pink and brown one too.

Dont forget to give us the link to your etsy shop!

I wish I could find a way to work from home.

Keeping my fingers crossed you make a ton of money and get that farm you're hankering after.

I sure love your quilts and I am sure they will do fine when you go to sell them. Quilts are such a warm and comfort thing to have. I have a quilt that M. Gray made for me for a graduation gift from high school. She did it all by hand. She tied her quilts rather than quilting them. I sure do treasure that quilt. Because of its age some of the stitching is coming undone and I do not know how to repair it. Can you help?

Lisa, you are great! Look at all that stuff! It is cute. And Breanna needs a hugging! Give her one from me! I will have to call and get the details on this farm--sounds intriguing!
