Lobsters and Baby Quilts!

I shouldn’t have ever complained about the cool weather we have had this summer.  This hot and humid stretch is still here and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.  It’s the sticky, humidity I wish would go away!  Although, I have to admit, it feels quite like the Illinois weather I grew up with.  On the bright side, it has been excellent weather for the beach.  My sister was visiting last week and we did a little beach-going and local sightseeing, while enjoying some fresh seafood.  We didn’t partake of these beauties, they were a little too out of our price range, but it looks like someone got to savor one!

I have had an Etsy shop for quite a while now, but have yet to list anything.  My goal for this month is to remedy that.  I have been working on some baby quilts and other baby items – hats, bibs, burpcloths – all the usual suspects.

Some are made with vintage sheets and linens, some with repurposed fabric, and some with nice, soft quilting cottons.  These are two quilt tops awaiting their backing, quilting, and binding.   I know these pictures are soooo bad.  I’m going to have to work on this before I list anything.  I’ve seen several good articles on Etsy.  I think I will start there.  August 2009 070

  1. Hi Elizabeth,
    Our weather here in RI is so hot and humid too. Those lobster do look yummy. I've had a Etsy shop for a long time too and have never sold anything. Good luck with yours...your quilts are adorable.
