Meanwhile Back at the Sweatshop

The QOV stack is getting higher. Only 2 more to go and then I can send these off to the returning Marine battalion. I'll be taking a rest from making QOVs until the fall. I still have all those great women's quilts to quilt for the shelter.
One of the bird designs for my etsy store. Laura and I are busy preparing inventory. I sure hope we have the right mix of merchandise.

Purple roses on bridal satin

Label for Amy & Shannon's quilts. I will be offering this in my etsy store too.

Do you know what this is? (the threads have not been trimmed yet)
Would you like to make a store sample or two for the store? I'll supply all the materials, have a chef stop by to fix food while you are sewing and then treat you to a spa day when you are done. OK, only one of those is really true; but, I could use the help! Interested?


  1. Gosh you've been busy. I don't know what that is in the last photo, but I like the looks of it. I tried to come up with a silly name for it, but it's Friday and my brain isn't functioning any more this week.

  2. I had to laugh about that sweatshop title-that is what Rich calls my workroom.

    As for that shape, it looks like some kind of surgical instrument or reverse cookie cutter. I feel like I have seen it before but can't place it.

  3. Your hummingbird embroidery is very modern and cool looking. I know your business is going to be a success.

  4. What is your timeline on samples? My own timeline is getting a little complicated, but I would be happy to help if I can work it out.

  5. The bird is great! Hope you put a link to your etsy store on your site when you're ready. It should do well.

  6. That label is really cute. I'm sure they will sell really well. What is the link to your etsy store? =(^_^)=

  7. You and Laura have got a very good thing going!
