Been a long time ~ Sorry!

Wow, I have a feeling this year is just going to get busier, so although I’ll try to update as much as I can, it could be a long time between posts.

I don’t even know where to start. . . Our holidays were wonderful ~ far to short, of course.  This was the first year I had to work thru the holidays while everyone, including my husband, got to stay home.  It was difficult to say the least.

Business is good.  Since the beginning of January, I’ve been adding items to all my shops and have had a good response.  It’s a struggle trying to keep up with three different locations, but I just love it.  My passion has always been creating items for customers and with every sale I’m just so grateful that people think enough of me to purchase something.

We’ve applied for everything we can apply for as far as college is concerned for the three kids.  Let’s just all cross our fingers that colleges are willing to help us out.  In reality, I can’t think of too many people that need to send all three of their kids to college in the same year.

I appreciate you all ~ love your comments and so cherish your support.  If you want to, please visit my sites to see what’s new.  You never know, maybe you’ll find something you can’t live without!  Big hugs, Wendy

A thing for black polka dots . . . .

 

As I was going thru some of my stored “stash” I came across these beautiful dresden quilt blocks I had purchased quite some time ago.  I took one and made a 20″ x 20″ pillow sham with it and paired it with black polka dots.  I think it frames it beautifully.  Of course, since I had the polka dots out, I had to make a stocking in non-traditional colors for Christmas.  The rest of the quilt blocks, I think I’ll list on etsy.  The colors really took me out of my “shabby chic” range, but I had a lot of fun!
