where has the week gone?

Wow... Wednesday already! This week has really flown but I wanted to pop in and show what I've been up to in prep for the next round of sales. Our weekend Open House at Andrea's was the best it's ever been. As I glanced through my individual part of the sales list, I stopped counting at over 80 items sold. Add to that the other family members who contributed their wares and also did extremely well, and my mind is boggled... boggled and frantic. So on Sunday, I started sewing a few new pieces to try to re-stock and this is what I managed to do...

... a log cabin twist quiltie... made with the green and red portion of a Crazy Eight honey bun...


... a vibrant santa themed panel that I quilted and still need to finish handsewing the binding on... I sold one like this last year through my Etsy shop and thought it would be fun to do again...


... a SWEET snowman table runner. Love the quilted snowflake detail! Can't wait to make more of these!


... a Santa fabric inspired log cabin mat... the colors are based on the wonderful Santa fabric in the border...


...also, yesterday I had an order arrive from Green Fairy Quilts and I couldn't resist using one of my Ruby charm packs to make a dozen teabag coasters.
Hmmm... so I guess I just answered my own question... where has the week gone? I think this has been the most intense week of sewing I've ever had. I actually have another sweet topper pieced and ready for quilting... we'll see if I can get to it or not. My hubby has been amazing this week, cleaning floors, hanging garlands and lights, and getting the tree up for me. Tomorrow - set up!
