A gift for a friend

Today's post will be short and sweet!  I have been busy cooking, cleaning and creating.  Lane said to get to my list of Things to Do, so I am.  I will share more as the week goes on.

I decided to create a new blog, Feeding Big.  You all know Big and you know it takes a lot to feed her!  I have been enjoying linking up to cooking parties, but decided it was not really appropriate for this blog.  Hence, Feeding Big.  I hope you will stop over and see what is cooking!  I have a lot of work to do on the site and I know I will make a lot of mistakes, but I am having fun with it and know I will learn as I go.

I posted a photo of a t-shirt I made for Big's Mom not too long ago.  P. at The Way I Sew It, was very complimentary.  I asked her if she would like one and she said, "Yes!"  It is in the mail today!  I will show the entire shirt to you when I know she has received it.  Wouldn't want to ruin it for her, would we?

I really need to get better with my camera!

A couple other decisions I have made this week.  I am going to open an etsy shop.  I have been making clothing for American Girl Dolls and have a client or two, but would love to expand and sell more. 

I have also decided to get back to my quilting on a regular basis.  In order make sure I stick with it, I will be joining some quilting parties.  My hope is they will make me get in my studio and sew, sew, sew!  Let me know if you know of any great groups!

Hope you have a wonderful day!  Big is working at home today, so we are adjusting to that!  Oh yeah, she is going to Hawaii with work soon and I am hoping to tag along!  EEEEEEEEeeeeeeee!  (That is me squealing from excitement!)


Pin It Now!

Can't wait to see the whole shirt. Looks like a cute pattern. And since I love food, I'm gonna head on over and follow along at your new spot, too.
