No Title - Just Thoughts

I looked over my list and I did get the rag quilt about 90% finished. Right now I am clipping the raw edges and then it will go into the washer. My daughter is so excited. My initial attempts at anything new are usually for her. This quilt is in black and white printed fabrics to go wth her black and white and yellow room. I will post the final product whatever happens. Keep you fingers crossed it turns out like it should!!

Since I started working on the quilt, I didn't do much more on my list. I did go grocery shopping and went to church. We didn't get the workout in. On Saturday, our Curves closes at Noon. Emily started voice lessons on Saturday morning and we slept in just a bit too long! Hubby did a good chunk of the laundry on Friday afternoon. It rained on Sunday so no gardening. I didn't touch the computer so no pics of the latest batch of key fobs and the paper is still needing to be organized.

Hopefully this week I will be able to finish the quilt and at least get started on the paperwork.

This weekend wasn't a total loss. My daughter decided to join me in my craft room and I do believe she received the crafting gene!! She started out making some hemp bracelets and necklaces and then decided to attempt earrings. I don't do earrings very well but she is a pro!! She now wants to sell them ~ go figure!! Below is a pair she made for me. I took the pic with a camera phone so the quality is lacking. Large silver bead is actually a ladybug. Quite impressive.
I am thinking about adding a folder to my shop titled "Emily's Earring Boutique" to see if they sell. Eventually, we will work on getting her a shop of her own. Mama is soooo proud!
The weekend didn't follow my plan but blessings abounded and I am thankful that I had some beautiful quality time with my daughter...that doesn't happen often with teenagers!!
I hope you are enjoyed a blessed beginning to a new week. Make it an awesome day!!
God bless!

Can't wait to see the quilt!
Oh, do post a folder for Emily! I took my daughter with me to craft shows. (Who wouldn't want to buy from a cute little child?!) She began to sell her own creations and did quite well. And it teaches her entrepreneurship--and you know how great that is!
