Well somedays you just can't get anything done no matter how hard you try, right? I am trying to make myself a fall raggedy recycled jean tote with a machine applique scarecrow on it. Now I have made that little scarecrow before but today he refused to come into being for some reason. After 2 starts and 2 messes I just put him aside for another day. I can just see me with a fall scarecrow tote at Christmas time. Well I always have walked to the tune of a different drummer.LOL. Now that little guy better cooperate tomorrow. This is a pic of him on a porch wall hanging. He is made in 3 sections and that is somewhat tricky to do. I have a janome 350E embroidery machine and I really like it for being so user friendly. This little guy is from www. emblibrary.com This is my favorite site for embroidery designs.
You name it I love it and I always will !! It brings me peace in times of pondering.

When my sisters and I were very young all three of us loved to make things. I think that was the way kids entertained themselves in those days. Our mother sat us down with old clothes and needles and thread and we made our dolls clothes.
My creativity grew from there and I found myself in high school making all of my own clothes. I did get a lot of attention with my matching outfits including hats. Since I was shy maybe that was my way of creating my own world and at the same time getting attention.
I finally did get tired of making clothes and went into quilting. The first year I quilted I made every family member quilts, quilts and more quilts.
You can only make so many quilts and so many bags before you have no space left. What is a very nutty creative person going to do about this?? Well you are going to open an ETSY shop and sell some of this stuff, right?? http://fabricartist21.etsy.com/
My neighbor asked me to make her a T-Shirt Quilt and I have been doing that for over a year now. I take special orders through my Etsy shop. I have become very busy with this business and will continue to create t-shirt quilts as long as their are customers that want them.
