While I can give myself all the titles I want, I can claim Scrap Savin Maven for this post. I began my quilting journey 8 years ago by reusing material from men's Hawaiian shirts. My first attempts at patchwork piecing were nothing short of disastrous.
It is a good thing I saved remnants from my original projects. I also utilized border pieces from a commissioned quilt I recently sent off for quilting. This type of quilt can be completed from start to finish in a weekend. It measures 29" x 29".A close-up shot.
The backing reveals the straight-line quilting or stitch in the ditch.
It is also news-appropriate with the fire-related disaster in Maui. I have never been to the Hawaiian islands but hope to visit some day. The conditions at that island echoed a similar disaster in Paradise, California in 2018.
But back to fun stuff, the images below are the tiki painting and quilt in my cubicle.
There is no work-related stuff to write on my white board (so few people are actually in office), so it has become The Tiki Room.
Because I made reference to my patchwork piecing progress over the years, I have included a link to my 5-year retrospective of quilt projects.
Moving on to seller update: This time two years ago I reported 1,500 active eBay listings. Two years later, I have increased my listings to 2,500. Course that averages out to posting 500 listings per year, or approx. 40 per month.
Yarn and books were the items in my latest eBay listing sessions. High quality yarn is a rare find out in the thrift shop wild. This is the best of the bunch. This shot has an artsy quality to it. Just one skein of Lion Brand acrylic yarn Homespun Pueblo.
