January 16

After a frustrating few days, Angie has come to my aid with instructions on uploading photos here.  So here goes, I am trying it out!
Wow!  it worked!
Many, many thanks to Angie!
This is a small wallhanging, 30 by 30 inches that I made several years ago.  It is machine embroidered with Baltimore album blocks.  It hung in my hallway for a few years and everytime I passed it, I thought to myself, "it needs more quilting".  So today, I finally did it, just in time to sell the quilt!
My daughter and I are trying a small business venture near her home in Georgia.  Some friends of hers own an antique/craft mall and I let her talk me into taking a small space there with her.  In my old life, I made and sold doll clothing for the American Girl dolls.  I retired from that venture 4 or 5 years ago, but I still had quite a stock of outfits on hand.  And of course, I have quilts spilling out of closets here.  So, nothing ventured, nothing gained.  I am committed (or maybe I SHOULD be committed, lol) for six months. 
We are leaving for Georgia on Friday morning, with the van full of inventory.  I will keep you all posted on our progress.
Again, thanks so much Angie, for coming to my rescue! 


  1. Where in Georgia I have a friend that has a stall somewhere in Georgia. Her name is Annie.
    Love your quilt and good luck.

  2. Oh, I'm so glad I responded to your email - that little quilt is fabulous! I love applique and eye candy. This couldn't have worked out better. What fun - a new venture - I did that with books - always wanted my own bookstore, so I took the plunge in 1999 and started an onlin store. It was fun for the 11 years (and in the black) I did it. Now I just want to quilt. Let us know how it goes.
