Been busy at the boutique! Furniture always seems to sell fast in the springtime, so I have been working on new pieces for the store…. And something for myself here and there ;)

Here is the little something I made for myself. Found this at target on clearance for $8 from $30…

Added some tattered chicness to it a I love it!

This is the before and after of a stool for the boutique….

Happy Wedensday!

No posts lately, we have been busy bees moving the boutique to a new location. I am loving the new space. So much natural light, my own parking lot and a covered front porch. My studio at the shop is a little smaller but that’s ok. Having a studio at home too allows me to split my creative tools so I can work at both spaces.

Here is the new boutique space! Now that it is all set up and open I hope to be getting back in the studio soon!!

Happy creating!

The snow has been relentless this year, but I don't mind all that much. I have been able to be quit productive in this calm winters wonderland.

This quilt is coming along nicely and almost have it done. I am just waiting on the border fabric to come in the mail so I can finish it up!

I have so thoroughly enjoyed being snowed in. Being with my wonderful husband and my dogs and sewing away to my hearts content. A few days I go in to open the boutique up and work at the studio there, however with such hazardous road conditions we have opted to not open on some days. No worries, I would rather people are safe and sound. I just putter around the house and get into mischief with the pups :)

I got a very exciting phone call this morning. My quilt was ready to be picked up from the quilter. I am so pleased with it, I can’t stop smiling! She did the stippling for me (quilted it) and put the binding on. I am in love with it. This is my very first quilt I have ever done and I have to say… many more are in my future!

Still working away on the heart block quilt for the studio wall. This small version is practice for me getting my seams right. Second quilt in progress…. Many more quilts in my future. This quilting stuff is quit addicting!

Please pay no attention to the seams that aren't lining up or the bird cage that is upside down. Perfect imperfections. I love it

It snowed again here… However the sun is shining reminding me that spring is just around the corner. Oh how my heart leaps at the though!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday!

Happy sewing!
