No power to sew with! How awful and tomorrow is National Quilting Day

I am a very lucky gal!! My outside electric breaker went out and I started blowing fuses. I called the manager of our mobile home park and they had to replace it. Now what is a busy gal going to do when you just can't sew and it is National Quilting Month and National Quilting Day tomorrow. Sooooooooo I went outside and started in my yard. Now of course it really is so beautiful. LOL I planted these flowers(bottom picture) my sister gave me for my birthday. The top picture is a pot of cactus from my daughter. Can you see the star cut in the cactus leaf? I love things like that. Yippee the A/C is on so will get busy and sew, quilt, sew, quilt!!!

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??
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.
