Hot Air Affair

My item of the week for this week is a small framed print of my painting "Hot Air Affair." I was inspired to do this painting after attending the annual "Hot Air Affair" in Hudson, Wisconsin a couple of years ago. It was so incredible watching the balloons going up and floating away. Anyway, this small framed print is $10 this week, with free shipping in my Etsy store.

This Week's Item of the Week

This week's item-of-the-week is a newly listed item; a framed embroidery picture of some beautiful blue flowers. This particular picture is 5 by 7 and in a beautiful frame. I think framed embroidery is a different form of art and would look beautiful anywhere. The regular price for this item is $30 but the sale price is just $22! Plus, you will get free shipping. This offer is only good until midnight this Sunday, October 18th. Thank you, and have a great week!

My First Quilt

So there it is, my first quilt! I haven't come up with a name yet, but I will soon. It's about 55 by 60, and I finished it in just a couple weeks. I'm not the type to start something and just work on it here and there; I work on something until it's finished. Actually that is a bit of a problem for me because I always seem to be working on many different projects all at the same time! :) Card making, painting, sewing, quilting.... I think I have too many interests. But if you would have told me a year ago that I would get into quilting, I wouldn't have believed it. I was so intimidated by the process, but I'm glad I got through it, because I love it! I have so many ideas for more quilts.

Anyway, I do plan to make some table runners, place mats and maybe even some quilts for Etsy over the next while, so look for them!

New Item of the Week

This week's item-of-the-week is a hand painted cigar box with red and purple fuschia flowers. This is actually one of my favorite cigar boxes. It is being offered at a special discount price of $17, and will be shipped for free. It's not too early to be thinking about holiday gifts for your friends and family :). Have a great week!
