Over 6000 Listings!

After a very rough year physically and by plugging away on my 'good' days, I'm very happy to say that we now have over 6000 listings in our ecrater store, Moonwishes Sewing and Crafts. Over 5000 of these listings are for sewing patterns in all types and sizes and we have many more to come.

I have also been able to finish two sewing projects recently, one major and one minor. The smaller one is a Christmas Stocking for the charming young lady my son brought home and introduced to us during Thanksgiving. She will be visiting again for part of the Christmas holiday and so of course needed her own stocking!

The larger project was a single sized quilt for my brother in law. I made it out of 8 1/2" orphaned blocks that I had made over the years. It was time to put them together! It was fun deciding the most logical arrangement to make with them. Many of the blocks use what I call 2 by 4 pieces. When I have leftover pieces of quilting fabric from a project I cut it into 2 1/2" square pieces, 4 1/2" square pieces, and 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangle pieces. It is amazing how many quilt blocks use only those pieces in many different formations. This quilt is composed of leftover bits of sewing fabrics from 40 years of sewing. The hardest part was the machine quilting and I don't think I will be doing that again as it is just too hard physically and I made a royal mess of it! I used the Janome Moter Sports Series card to embroider the truck in the color of my BIL's rig.
