Caution Woman at Work

I’ve barely made a peep about what I have been up to, but in as few words as possible, I have been building, designing, painting, and in general making quite a mess!

Holy Cow this looks dangerous! 

This bit is representative of the construction phase going on in here.  And I am relieved to tell you that the view is not this bad today.  I have some touching up to do on the shelving, and a really fun surprise for the finish… I’m calling the finish Chinese modern meets Mid Century modern.  If you remember Chinese Modern (straight lines and black lacquer)  you will get it when I post my finish.  😉

I am excited for the project to be done

I want to get back to quilting again.

FULL DISCLOSURE:  Bob helped with the drafting of the shelving brackets and the lifting of heavy things.  He also did the framing of my quilting table/desk to my specifications last year while I was away visiting my Auntie and the Missouri Star Quilt Co in Hamilton, MO.

Scrap Happy

Well, OK it was actually yesterday but Kate gave us permission to just do it.

So I did!

The block is called  Wedding Star  or  Rolling Stone

Your eyes do not deceive you.  The block is only two inches square.  In the end, to get this nine patch block assembled, I had to resort to placing my blocks onto newsprint to join each block into rows.  The seams were very lumpy and would not go through otherwise.

There are four more mini blocks in this free series from Hope’s Quilt Designs.

Guess what I will be working on for the next four scrap happy editions?

Our other Scrappy participants are:

KateGun, TittiHeléneEvaSue, Nanette, Lynn, NormaLynda (me),
Birthe, Turid, Cathy, Debbierose, Tracy, Jill, Claire, JanKaren,
Moira, SandraLindaChris, and we have a new member joining us this month.  Welcome, Nancy!

So why have I been so late, you ask?  With everything?  Because I have been making quilt tops like this one which is not entirely done, but very engaging work for me this month!

I’m excited about this one.  🙂

Ready or Not!

I have put it off for far too long.

The time is now or never. 

So,

Ready or Not, my Etsy store is open!

First items are Mad Chicken Lady Hats.  Why?  Because you and I both know that Spring has a few tricks up her sleeve.  If you have early morning chores to do (feed the livestock, walk the dog) and the wind is blowing you may like these MCL hats.  The original hat can be viewed on an early post, Confessions of a Mad Chicken LadyHERE.  New hats are on sale at Farmlet Originals.  HERE .

BestFriend1This hat was born of my frustration for ill fitting caps that won’t stay down, and scarves that won’t stay on in the wind.

I also have a few aprons up and there will of course be many more items as time goes by.  Bob and I have future plans for a few woodcraft items too!

My favorite!

FrenchPost1Please  go have a look and and I hope you like what you see!

A special notice to my out of the states readers:

I am still learning the ins and outs of listing and postage procedure.  If you see an item and you might like it, please let me know and I will mark it as on hold for you.  I can then put in your mailing info and get you a postage price.  Thank you for your patience while I learn.

PS:  If you like it let me know.  If you think the pricing is off (too high or too low) let me know that too.

Thank you!
