I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

what exactly have i been up to?

Not much quilting.
Sales of the reproduction fabrics at my friends quilt shop have not been terribly good. The weekend I went to visit she mentioned that another sample besides the tote bag I made would give people more ideas. I'm going to make a small wall hanging with probably 4 blocks from Jo Morton's Prairie Flowers book.
I love repro fabrics so I need to get them selling so she can continue to carry them. :cD
I've mostly been working on some extracurricular Christmas activities at my job. I'll post more on that later when things are out of the planning stages and I have some pictures.

I love that pattern of Jo Morton's, and your blocks are beautiful! I can't wait to see the wallhanging. I've had that pattern earmarked forever, and just haven't started it yet, so I was so excited to see that you had! :D

Jo Morton and Lori Smith patterns both showcase repro fabrics . . . they'll be selling before you know it *s*

I love working with reproduction fabrics. That's so nice of you to make the samples so people will keep buying. I hope it all works out.

Wow, I'm surprised. I'm sure if you make up some easy samples, sales will pick up. Sometimes all folks need is an idea.

We would all kill here for reproduction fabrics lol. Love them, love them. I'm sure once they see your samples, they will start buying.
