I wish I were home today, as it is raining and gray outside, the perfect sewing weather! I need to make up some time, as I did not quilt this weekend, as planned. Instead, I updated both my husband’s and my websites, www.GriffinDrywall.com and www.ArtisanAtHeart.com
I am excited that I conquered the challenge of a new piece of software, as well as how the new FAQs now display in an accordion style! There is still a lot of work left to do for my site, specifically getting the store back up and running and configuring it to use PayPal, but that is the nature of the beast!
I am also looking at submitting an application for one of the local farmer's markets to sell my quilts. The table fee is quite reasonable, and I don't have to commit for the full season up front, which is a concern since I don’t have a large inventory of quilts to sell yet.
One reason I haven’t posted much lately is that I have been working on testing a particular pattern to see if I can make some quilts in a production style method, while still maintaining quality, and I have been very pleased so far. I think I can have several lap/baby sized quilts completed in 2-3 weeks, which will make having a table at the market feasible, as well as showing some larger quilts for customers to order in their own colors.
So, I have lots of quilting plans, not to mention normal “life” plans. I feel very blessed to have so much to look forward to. I hope to also achieve balance in my approach, enjoying the entire journey and appreciating the experiences with the busy-ness that can be so all-consuming.
