Sew, its been a while!!

Sorry the pun was intended... Yes I have been sewing up a storm. I have been averaging a quilt every 2 weeks. Seems I really enjoy it and it has been calming my stressed nerves. I received my college diploma this last month. I had been finished with classes since December but I got the "paper" in the mail. I am signed up to participate in Graduation Ceremonies on September 6th at Arco Arena. Work has been stressful and quilting seems to help me forget about the work stuff. Here are a few pictures of the latest creations...

This is a baby girl quilt I made for the Mule Deer Foundation. It will be auctioned off on July 19th with the proceeds going to the conservation of Mule Deer Habitat here in California. I have also made a boys quilt that will also be auctioned off at the same event. I have not finished it yet though...

This quilt I made for a wedding gift. I must confess that I liked the material/colors so much that I made it smaller than I first planned so I could make a second one for myself! I am toying with the idea of taking special orders for quilts. I love making them for friends and family so why can't I make some money too?? I have one ready to be sold and I am going to list it on Etsy.com. Etsy is all handmade items for sale. No bidding and no crap like Ebay. Etsy has quality handmade items from all over the country. You should check it out... In the meantime if you need a quilt for a gift or for yourself, let me know.

So here we go again.. Take 2

So here we go again... It is April 2008 and yes this is the first time I am posting this year. LOL I have made some cards this fall and winter. I was extremely busy working and finishing up my schooling. I am happy to announce that I have unofficially graduated from the University of Phoenix in December of 07. I will officially graduate sometime this spring. I now have a Bachelors Degree in Business Accounting.
