Whew!!! I may need a new battery!

I have been SEW busy!  We have a new little boutique here in town guess who has a booth????  This is something I've wanted to do for a really long time, but never 'followed through'.  Lord willing, I'm planning to retire in 18 months (but, hey, who is counting?  right?) and my plans are to spend time in my studio making quilts and quilted gift items -- anything fabric!  My friend has a booth at "Finders Keepers" boutique and talked me into doing this.  The great thing about it is that I'm the only quilter -- yea!  I put my items in the shop on February 12th.  ALL the quilts I put in the booth are GONE...Yep, sold every stinkin' one of them!  As Martha Stewart would say "that's a good thing".  So guess who is busy making more???  That would be (slowly raising hand)  me!  This full-time job is "just about" to get in my way!  ;)   Below are a few pictures of some of the items I've been working on.

 To the right is a jelly roll race quilt...my first one!  It was quick and fun to make!!
 To the left is the back of the jelly roll race quilt.

With Easter just around the corner, I thought the mini-quilt to the right would be just perfect.  It was a fun project and quick....did I say quick??  Four fabrics and half square triangles and you have a quick quilt.  I think it would be great in a larger size too.

I'm lovin' these headbands!  They are reversible and some of the customers say they are "great for working out! -- keeps that hair out of the face!"  I have more "in the works" that will have embellishments on them.

To the right is a Texas flag quilt (yep, I'm a Texan thru and thru) that I have framed.  Sorry about that reflection of the flash in the pic.  I also have some with a barnwood frame.

 To the left is some embroidery that I did.  This is my one of my favorite verses.  I was going to make it into a pillow and then decided to frame it!

Another framed Bible verse!
