Sunday Stash report
I feeel like I have been really working hard on my quilting this week. I have used up 8 yards of fabric for the fall table runner and the 2 tote bags. BUT I had to buy 10 yards of fabric to back and use as borders for the block exchange quilt. I think I will be finishing that top this week and all of that yardage will be out of the stash!!
I am practicing often to use different freehand quilting patterns for our longarm business. The laser will be here this week to start pantographs. Mom and I are preparing to take our first customers in the next week or so. I hope to get some business cards out in the community and possibly have a web page or blog for the business. Not sure about the web page, yet.
We went to the sewing center where we bought the long arm yesterday. They serviced my sewing machine and asked to leave cards there too. It was a nice feeling that they want to help us get our business going.
What to do with all the practice quilted yardage? We decided to apply for the big craft show on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) to sell the pieces. I will apply for that this week. At least we will be able make nice things like the tote bags above, table runners and some quilts will be ready by then. I am excited about all of this.
