Apparently, blogging is hard to do…or it seems that way since I never blog!
I’ve been neglecting my blog but working on my Etsy shop. I now have over 100 sales and almost 400 items in my shop! I should have 400 (at least) but there are some items I haven’t even had time to list! Crazy!
Here is some eye candy to show off some things that I have done recently. I just finished my bee blocks for the 4 x 5 Bee:
It was a lot of fun but I’m going to sit out next quarter. I still have to finish my 3 x 6 blocks this week and catch up on some other bee blocks.
I can finally show off the Map of Canada pillow I made for Sylvia for the Make Mine Modern Swap (please excuse the lame iPhone photos, I was too lazy to use my camera):
I saw this awesome map idea in Sylvia’s mosaic and I thought, “OH! I can do that! Canada will be easy!” So, I had my boyfriend help me make applique templates for all the provinces. I figured there’s like a handful compared to all the states we have. Piece of cake, right? NO! They have about 1000 islands up there! Anyway, I didn’t add every single island. I used a different color for each province and free motioned around them to keep them from coming off in the wash (I used Wonder Under to stick them on). I had to learn how to free motion for this project but I think it turned out all right!
