Music To My Ears

I just created this instrument case for this customer last week. I had never made anything like this nor had I ever seen an instrument like this before either. I used prequilted paisley fabric in a rich maroon to match the history of the instrument. I believe he told me this one was made in Austria. This man plays at dances, concerts and anywhere he is able to. I also believe he flies out to visit his daughter and they both play and have a lot of fun. He calls it a "hurdy gurdy". It sounds very pretty and I can tell you he knows his music. Thanks, Theo for letting me make this case for you!!

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.
