This week Hubby was out of town for work, and you'd think that would mean 5 straight days of sewing. And you'd be right, expect for the fact that Astrid, my wonderful sewing machine, is out of commission. Big Time. I've only had her 6 short months, but in that time I've made so many memories! I wish it wasn't so, but it looks like I'm in the market for a brand spanking new sewing machine. I just might be getting one that free motion quilts, for reals.
I'm thinking of that, and I'm thinking of how to go about selling my wares. Living in Portland there is such a huge market for handmade goods that I know I will have better luck through small retails stores and street fairs. The internet is such a big place, and etsy is such a big place I need to try the home front and see where it takes me. I'm still developing my brand and product lines but I am very happy with where I am headed.
The summer garden is in swing, cucumbers, beans, tomatoes the size of baseballs. It's a good summer for veggies here and I can't wait to can tomatoes for winter pasta.
I'd love to sew my warm/cool quilt and I'm designing a pinwheel quilt, but these will come later....the baby isn't due till 2012.
Have a lovely weekend, the last few before fall......
