This week was a busy one for me, and I accomplished quite a bit. I was able to finish all the blocks for both of the Saddle Up quilts. Then, since the embroidery machine was all warmed up, I decided to embroider some bibs for the Etsy shop. I have been somewhat disappointed because I have had no sales in the Etsy shop. But surprisingly, I received an order for a quilt from someone who had visited my Pinterest site and had seen some of my quilts there. And I received an order for 10 bibs from a friend who had seen a post of mine on Facebook. Funny how things happen!!!.
When I went searching for the patterns for the quilt, I realized that they were on the old laptop (or so I thought). So, I plugged it in, and the patterns weren't there. I have no idea where they went to, they seem to have just vanished into thin air. The Photodraw program that I loved working with (and has been discontinued by Microsoft) was still on the old laptop, so I started from scratch, and had new patterns in no time. Friday evening I had placed a bid on a Photodraw program that I could install on my new laptop, and won that bid on Saturday morning. Hopefully it will run on the new laptop. Today I traced all the pieces for the applique quilt onto WonderUnder. I have never used it before, I always use Heat N Bond. But I will give it a try. So tomorrow I will start fusing those patterns. I chose my fabrics for the quilt, and emailed the choices to the person who placed the order. She approved them, and they are ordered. I work on the fusing in the sewing room because I don't want the iron here in the living room when the kids are here. But I can use the embroidery machine in the living room, so I can work on the bibs this week.
We're expecting a winter storm tonight into tomorrow. It's always nice to sit here in the warm house and watch it snow outside. Hope you had a great weekend. Stay warm this week.
