I'm back to my busy ways. I'm looking forward to the weekend. Im having a hard time staying at work i have so much to get done. I posted a baby quilt i designed and made on a for sale facebook site well it started a freenzy and i got 5 custom quilt orders and i sold that quilt. so now im on the lookout for fabric. Im going to hit up the local store tomorrow but I know it will find little to nothing there most of the material i have to order online. usually ebay, joann or fabric.com. But my big excitment , nervous, and kinda sad is this saturday. I have donated a sampler quilt to the treasure mountain festival in west virginia. they have a live auction to help pay for next years event. Im excited to see my quilt being auction but nervous wondering how other people will like it how much will it go for. It was a hard quilt to put together . I enjoyed doing it but it took me 6 months and that is a incredable long time for me. I usually kick out a quilt in 2 weeks at the most. most baby blankets i can do on a weekend. BUT it turned out to be the prettiest one I think i have ever made so im kinda sad to let it go lol. then I go back to being worried it woint go for much. I did a small one a few years ago and it went for 50.00 which is what i would have sold it for. this one its hard to put a price on it. I guess most i do this size would be around 100.00 but with all the work put into it I think it's worth more but then again I have fallen in love with it. I plan to take pictures of the auction and post on my facebook quilt site to promote buisness. so wish me luck it goes well if it didnt go for much I think i would be heart broken. But at auctions you never know what kind of crowd you will have and if its a bunch of guys they cant see the work in the quilt. but enough of that.
weight is sllllooowwwlly coming off . I really have to work at it and I have noticed the last few month I have been craving sweets. I never craved sweets in the past like this even while pregnant so I dont know if its from the dieting or my taste buds are just changing. I usually dont want a lot like i dont even eat a whole candy bar but I have noticed i want it after i eat . even if im not hungry i will want something sweet. someone told me to try small carmel or butter scotch candy and fresh oranges to kick the sweet bug and I think that actually may work some im going to get some.
