Crafty things and rainbow blocks

Have I ever shown you my “to be quilted” board?

I list the title to the left, the measurements of the top, batting and backing and if the Label is done and the Binding, either with a checkmark or a number if the binding hasn’t been made yet, then how many strips it needs.

At the bottom of the board are sizes of large chunks of batting that I have- I also have a roll of warm and natural, but these could be packaged battings or chunks left over after I made a quilt and cut off the remnants from the roll…

anyways…. my board is empty!! a first in, I don’t know how long! I don’t know what to do with myself!!


Of course, start something new!!

I have signed up for a local craft show by the town I live in, and my big sellers last year and at other shows are these fun ITH eyeglass holders

I have owls, cats and dogs!

Here’s the box that my husband made for me a few years ago for them and I have them sorted in rainbow colors!

-it’s funny, a customer might walk up and look and then comment, oh you don’t have a purple cat- oh then I don’t want one….sigh…. oh well

So I try to have variety!


I’ve been working on soscrappy’s color of the month, Sept’s color is blue

What cute eyeglass cases. Yes, we all want 'our color' when we buy something.

When is your show? I am busy prepping for 4 shows, it's pretty crazy at my house right now. Good luck with yours. Oh I totally get the need of variety to please everyone we possibly can(and make the sale!).
