Weekend Review

I made some a few new postcards for the shop this weekend. Then I got a bright idea.

Why not do something with all those nickel charm packs? I started to make some yo-yos. I planned to make sets of 25 and sell them in the shop. To get a better idea of what type of price to put on them I checked out Etsy and Ebay. That was a quick deterrent to making any more yo-yos. There are already bunches of gals making them and they are very inexpensive. I might continue this project, with plans on selling them in the 2011 Broward Quilt Expo. Well, maybe I could make blocks in groups of 12 and sell them? I don't know, just thinking out loud.

While thinking of making blocks, I started to feel a bit guilty that I haven't done any charity work in many weeks. So, I made 4 string blocks. I still feel guilty (that's guilty with a G not quilty with a Q). I'm going to have to make more.

Oh don't you just love the yo-yo's. I think they are just wonderful and so festive. I love these blocks that you made. I like the strip that looks like corn in candy corn colors. How beautiful is that? I have never made a quilt, but always wanted to. You make it look so beautiful. Thanks for sharing this beautiful day. Stop by soon. Country hugs sweetie, Sherry

Everything is so gorgeous!

I blogged tonight about the beautiful fabric bowl I won in your recent giveaway. Please check it out when you have time:

And thank you again for the bowl - I LOVE it! Once I decide what I want from your shop, I'll be back to make a purchase.
