I will tell you in a little bit why I asked that question. It will be worth it, I promise! I have to tell you this story first. It's all related.
See this gorgeous little quilt? This was pieced by Vicki of Vicki's Crafts and Quilting. When I saw it, I REALLY REALLY wanted it. I have only been quilting on my own for a year now but so far, every quilt I've made and quilted has been for someone else. I have no quilts of my own! And I'm not seeing any time in the near future where I will be able to make one. Now don't you think it is a shame for a quilter not to have any quilts? ME TOO!
So I bought it! My intention was to quilt it myself so I could at least say I had done that much, but again. It is not looking like I'll find time any time soon.
Yummy, yummy colors!
Anyway, back to the story . . . one day I happened to be chatting with Jen Strauser of Dizzy Quilter who is right smack dab in the middle of starting a new quilting business. Yay for entrepreneurs! I love having adventurous friends! I asked her teasingly if she needed any quilts to practice on and she said she does! She is offering to quilt something for the first ten people who express interest for only $50 (queen or under). $75 if it is king size. So I am going to send her this quilt to quilt for me!
How special is that? Not only will I finally have a quilt of my own, but I will have a quilt made by a blogging friend in Minnesota and quilted by another blogging friend in New Jersey! I am so looking forward to having it to snuggle under!
And yes, I did get permission to "out" her offer before she did. So if you have any quilts you want quilted for a very reasonable price, give Jen some practice!
And on the quilting front in my own sewing room, I got Cacey's top finished! Cacey and I need to get together and choose some fabric for the backing and binding. I will hopefully be starting on Kenzi's quilt next. Then finish Ashley's . . . then make one for my son Morgan who graduated several years ago. I feel so bad for getting to him so late! I do have the pattern and fabric picked and purchased though. He has been so patient and telling me not to stress about it. Thanks, Morgan! And somewhere in there, finish quilting my mom's quilt too. (sigh)
On the house front, we just got a full price offer! Plus they want us to build a shop too. We have until the end of June to live in the house we're in, and after that, not sure what we'll do. Probably some kind of RV for a couple months. I'm trying to imagine how I'm going to sew but I guess if Louise (Quilt Odyssey) can do it in a boat, I should be able to figure out something! This will be interesting.
State track meet tomorrow! This young lady is competing in four events in her senior year. This will be the first state meet that hasn't been freezing cold. It is supposed to be sunny and warm this weekend. Yahoo!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
