What else I have been doing?

A couple of posts ago I said changes were coming. Changes to this blog, my job and my life.  Well if you have followed or view this blog you can see the changes I made to it.  The name, the background, colorings etc.  As for my job, well I resigned from that in November for various reasons that I won't go into here.  As for my life I was not feeling challenged. I was bored and needed to do something different. I am needed at home because of our youngest son who has autism. For me working outside the home would cost more in care giving than I would be able to earn.  So I had to come up with another solution. 
Over the last couple of months I have moved my sewing space to the basement in hopes of starting a small home based business selling quilted and knitted items.  I also hope to open an Etsy shop in the near future once I get a few more things ready for sale.  The pics in this post are some of the things I have been working on.  

A Quilty Finish

This I Spy quilt has been waiting patiently on my quilting frame for quite some time.  I finally finished it when I had a person express an interest in buying it.  Now it is quilted, bond and delivered.

Back in business!

Over the last couple of months I have been slowly moving all my sewing equipment from our dining room to our basement.  I have a lot of organizing to do but it is all moved and I can get back to quilting. Eventually I am hoping to open my quilting frame up to it's full length.  One thing I really like about having the basement as my sewing room is I can spread out and if I am in the middle of a project I can leave it where it sits until I can get back to it.
