What have I been up to?

Since the closing of The Woolen Willow quilt shop, I have been working at home for my job with our magazine. I go into the office a few times a week or so to pick up patterns that might need testing or corrected for the magazine, or templates. I also go in for meetings, and if my help is needed in the antique and gift shop we also run, called The Painted Cupboard. When I need to dye wool, which I still sell in the shop, I do that there also! In my free evening time and weekends, which haven't been free up till now, I get to sew or relax! This is what I've been working on.....




These are blocks I'm working on from an old Linda Brannock book called "Quilt Album" and the pattern is called Primitive Star. They are all appliqu├ęd wonky, and don't have points! I saw it finished on another blog....I believe Homepunprimitives.blogspot.com, and asked her where it was from. I just love it!

This is a little sewing pocket I made for our retreat class at Blackwater Falls. It holds marking pens thread, scissors and pins! I can stick a few wonky star blocks in there too, and put it in my purse! It was fun to make, and I plan on doing up some patterns and maybe a few kits for when my new website is up and running! Speaking of the new website... It will be www.woolenwillowdesigns.com!
So.....remember that new sewing room over the garage I told you about a couple posts ago??? Still waiting!!! The papers are all turned into the bank tho! Had to wait on our accountant to finish our taxes:( We have one estimate, and are waiting on another, then we should be able to start! I will definitely take pictures and share the process!
Okay, back to work for me!!! Have a terrific weekend!!

    1. Thank you Linda, if you go to www.woolenwillowdesigns.com, and sign up for the email, once the website is up and running, you will be able to order! The sewing pocket might not be there right away, but keep checking! I'll also post about if on Jenifromthewillow.blogspot.com!
      Thanks!!

  2. This seems like a very busy time for you! I hope your website looks great when it goes live. Most people would be impressed with a great-looking website, and they could even do business with you. You'd have to make it easier for prospective clients to search for it, so you have to do those too. Good luck!
