The past few weeks have been exciting for my little dog…when the mailman comes she goes absolutely wild and barks like it’s Jack the Ripper. I have kept my mailman pretty busy.
I’m also buying vintage fabric for my Etsy shop. I’m breaking even so far…not making any money
but I’m not losing any either. It takes time. This ticking came from a lovely Etsy shop owner named Ginger.
I also stalk eBay for vintage fabric finds. The next two are auction wins. These are referred to as “toweling.” You’ll be relieved to know I’m not making towels…I’m making table runners.
The color of this one is exactly like coffee with cream.
I’m really excited about this next piece. It’s long and in perfect condition which is sometimes hard to come by when you work with vintage fabrics. One of the things I have learned (the hard way) is to examine every piece carefully before cutting. Not too long ago I got a pillow cover completely put together only to find out there was a stain right on the front. The thing that creeped me out was that the spot looked like it could have been blood. Needless to say I took the cover apart and started over.
This next parcel was possibly the most exciting. My friend Laurie from how my time flys is a talented artist.
I ordered the print from her Etsy shop. She sent that plus a signed original. When I opened the package I couldn’t believe it at first. Her generosity was so touching and I am honored to have her work in my home.
Since I started my blog, I have tried to specifically thank all the lovely people who have helped me along the way. I’ve received words of encouragement, features and a few wonderful giveaway wins to name just a few. If I have overlooked anyone please know it wasn’t intentional. I appreciate every single one of you who support me and keep coming back to read my blog. Thank you.
