Back To Work

Well, today was the first day officially that we were all back to school and work in this house, and it was kind of sad last night! But, on the other hand we all survived our day and are working back into our old routines. Work for me wasn't all that bad, after all I do work in a Quilt Shop! We are getting ready for a big quilt run in February. I cut strips to make a jelly roll for a sample quilt. If it comes out well we plan to cut enough strips for another 8 jelly rolls (that's 40 strips each!) So, that should keep me busy next week.

I mailed out my patterns today, and bought the supplies to mail out the rest. I am soo nervous about this, I really hope I get some orders. I am not much of a risk taker, so this is really out of my league. But it is good for me. At least I keep telling myself this!

I bought the back for a batik Crazy 8 quilt, so will work on quilting that this weekend. I think it will be a nice little quilt - here are the blocks before I sewed them together:

And this is the first quilt I made with this pattern - very different isn't it?
