A new giveaway found, project picture and a good mail day!

Okay, first off, I want to thank all the wonderful comments my few readers have left. Thank you for making me feel *sew* much better. I am still crying as I type this, but I know this will pass as it always does. I really wanted to work at that company.

As my dearest friend always tells me, when God closes one door, he surely leaves another one open, you just need to find it. Well I found a very tiny doggie door. I am going to see what it will take to open my own quilt store. It will be online only for many years if at all. I have a sweet, gracious sewing buddy, who has been amazing the past year as a true friend, that is very interested in owning and operating an online fabric store also. She is willing to partner up with me to see if we can make this dream we share a reality. I sure hope I can figure it all out as she will be backing this endeavor financially to start. Otherwise, it would still be only a dream. Anyone with any information about how to go about this, please give me a hint. <wink>

Since I have lots of time on my hands yet again, I have been catching up on my blog reading. I have missed several giveaways! However, I did find one this morning that you can still enter. Hop on over to My Yellow Farmhouse and leave a comment. Her blog is pure, unadulterated eye candy!

I did whip up a pocketbook like that I mentioned in a previous post. However, I used some home dec fabric for the first one. I truly love this little bag.home dec pocketbook home dec pocketbook 2 Hopefully, if I can keep my mindset







positive, I will get the other one done today. I plan to make matching accessories using some great tutorials I found online. These will be made to match the home dec fabric pocketbook as I purchased the small remnant that was left after I had my yardage cut.

In other happy news, I got mail!! LOL My prize my prize I won from Linda over at Living4Quilting arrived yesterday afternoon! Again, thank you *sew* much Linda. It really helped me out of a very, very low mood.


Happy Sewing,

I am reading your blog for the first time and I can relate to bad times too. You and your readers have inspired me to keep on and to maybe start my own blog. Your readers are so supportive, and lords knows in time like this, you need that support. Sunny, you made me realize, you're not alone, and neither am I. thank you

Good luck with your online shop. If one of you knows html, you can set up your own site with the help of Paypal's business buttons, without the expense of hiring someone to do it for you. Be sure to register the shop with places like quiltshops.com and fabshophop once you are up and running.
