I was stuck on the computer most of the day today. I should keep up with our tax records all year, but I almost always leave it until the last minute. Today was the day. And I had worked on them Thursday night, too. I did take time to make sure I’m up to date with this year, plus I’m trying to do a better job of keeping track of my own expenses and income this year, too.
Tomorrow will be the third anniversary of my shop on Etsy. Congratulations, Country By Design! And last month was my best month ever. I’m looking forward to a good year.
Right now, I’m working on three projects. I finished this baby blanket featuring the Lily and Will collection from Moda tonight. It just needs to be washed.
I’ll list it on Etsy just as soon as I get it washed and dried.
This Lumiere de Noel table runner is for a custom order. I may have to order another set of this charm pack from Moda. I like the way it works up.
One more. I received a custom order for a rather large runner in random colors. So I gathered up all the left over Moda squares that I had and added a few new ones, plus some odds and ends from my stash. Here’s the way I have it laid out now. I’ve revised it 5 or 6 times already. I’m going to have to come up with something soon because I have it laid out on top of my freezer. I can’t open the freezer door until I move the fabrics.
It is harder for me to lay out a design like this than one that is more structured. I’m better at patterns than random!
