The shop and some of my thoughts

Good morning, at least here it is.  When I'm not at home, I'm here at First Class Nails .  And If I'm not doing nails I'm usually cleaning the shop or upstairs sewing or yet again, I'm Blogging.  I think I see blogging as several things wrapped up in one.  Eclecticly being a form of a diary, having secret pals, scrap book and maybe, just maybe a form of enjoyment for someone else other than myself.

I'm hoping I have the site settings on for comments for you all.  I guess you can also post pictures. I'm not too sure about that yet.  I would like to see where your from, things you like to sew and your families too.

Tomorrow I'll be starting two bears for a lady who has lost her parents and wants bears made out of her mothers pajamas and her dads favorite shirt.  I'll take pictures of the pants and shirt tonight before I cut the patterns out in the morning.  Have a great day.  See you tomorrow.

Frosty Morning

 It is getting frosty here in Louisville, KY.  We are still getting a little color  though.  Don is just starting a small fire in the evenings now.  Makes it homey till you have to sweep up the mess from carrying in the wood. But on the other hand I'm not complaining since I'm not the one carrying it, especially when it really starts to get cold and windy.
 I just finished backing this quilt.  I found it in a tattered treasures store. It is vintage fabric that was hand stitched.  I'm going to hand quilt it using straight stitching in ecru thread.  I saw a couple of older quilts done this way I think it will suit this one just fine.. You all stay warm.
