And, the little train found out, he could. And, I will.
So, I’m thinking I can pull a baby girl quilt off, here.
The center is all pieced and the brown is actually kind of nice to tone the pinks down. There’s some green, too, out in the border. It’s been waiting. Bits and pieces, left from Bonnie Hunter’s Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll Mystery quilt. I pieced a queen and only made a lap, which got auctioned by a church group and raised $700 for a mission trip they were taking. And, I had enough pieces left to make this quilt and another, still not assembled quilt.
I also brought quilts home yesterday.
which is being renamed, “It’s prettier from the back”
which is pretty densely quilted as well, but you can’t really see it.
These have been hanging at the LQS where I was teaching. I’ve had three classes that no one signed up for and I need to change something. I need some way to get people in and then to get them to tell their friends. So, I asked for my quilts and I’m going to try to add some of my own marketing to the advertising that the shop has been doing.
I’m thinking that I need to go to the shop and just sit and sew, on days when there’s nothing else scheduled. Just show people what I can do and what I’m teaching. I’ve asked if I can come in on some sale days when there’s lots of traffic.
And, I need more examples for the shop walls to show off my work. And, I just don’t have those right now, so the quilts need to come and go instead of the same ones hanging until they disappear into the background.
So, that’s that for now. I need to build a “brand”. I’ve watched companies do that for years. I think I can do that, too. I think I can.
Have a great Thursday. With two extra days added to October, there’s no telling how much trouble I’ll get into.
I just walked through the empty house. Sydney had left the Kardashians on in one room and Rob had left the Cleavers on in the other. I’m feeling slightly schizophrenic. I think I can?
Be well. Lane
