It Almost Feels Like Autumn

The kids must be back in school because things have bounced back to normal in eBay sales. It is still warm in Northern California. I must be wishing and hoping for cooler fall weather. 

This rag doll is the latest to go up for sale. Her only fix was to add a missing button to one shoe. 


Here she is acting as iPhone laptop charging station in my remote office dining room table. 

Quilting update: I sewed together a quilt top with fish print fabric I had been saving over the years. I utilized mystery quilter's premade quilt blocks for both the top and bottom borders. It measures 80"x96" and is destined to become the camping trailer quilt. 

This was the first layout before I added more borders. The piece of fabric of koi pond was a remnant printed in and found in Seattle some years ago on a visit to mom. 

The completed quilt blocks came through thrift a couple of months ago. I will update once it is quilted and bound. 

I have turned my attention to the mini-quilt of men's Hawaiian shirts. The commissioned quilt is at the longarmer for quilting. For that project, I am making scrappy 4-1/2" squares with the same neutral border fabric shown below. 
Seller's update - 2 of the 4 sets of Barbie clothes have sold. Tarot and fortune telling games are also quick selling items. 

This set of two patterns are some of the oldest I have put up for sale both from the San Francisco Pattern Company. 



I am heading back to the ocean for the weekend. Here is hoping I spot some whales and catch some fish! 🐟
