busy busy busy!

Well, I finally decided to .com myself and registered www.scrappyblue.com (obviously). What a great feeling that is .... seems like such an insignificant "geeky" thing but I'm actually quite pleased with myself.

STILL haven't finished the 30 degrees or the Peter & Paul quilt, but I do have a good reason. A lady in downtown Vancouver hired me to quilt some of her quilts for her. Paying work always comes before my own, of course!

Here's a picture of one of the quilts I've been doing for her. She made the quilt top but doesn't have time to quilt it herself, so I get to do it for her. It's a beautiful lap size quilt of 5 different baskets. I put a cross-hatch grid in the background, she supplied a leaf stencil for the sashing. I still have to put a hanging sleeve across the back yet, but she saw it yesterday and was quite pleased with the work done, so that's great. Always encouraging when a customer likes my work.

I also quilted a small wallhanging for her, she took that home when she came by yesterday. So now I'm quilting a blue and yellow log cabin lap size of hers, then a black (with appliqu├ęd fans) lap quilt, then putting a back on an antique quilt top she has from many years ago to help preserve it, and that's about it for that job.

I figure this work should take me to the end of the month probably, then I'll be back at my own things, unless something else comes along, then we'll see how that goes.
