Quiltsy Team Great Finds: 1-24-15

Well - we finally had SNOW on Long Island!  It started overnight, but by the time 6:30 am rolled around, the snow had turned to sleet and rain.  Now we have lots of slush.  Not so great.  And definitely not so great if the temps drop again tonight and all this becomes ice. 

Here some beautiful quilteds to browse through on this January day.  Please click on the SHOP NAME to see the featured item, but also all the wonderful items these talented Quiltsy Team Members make!

My mother and I make up the Olive Street Studio design and sewing team.  I cannot remember my mom NOT sewing or quilting.  Since 2003, we've made chenille and cotton baby quilts, baby gift sets, little girls dresses and skirts.  In 2013, we expanded into Home Decor quilts and after getting requests for even bigger quilts, we're working on larger quilts too.  Then, with extra time, because we all have extra time, ha ha, we also make reversible tote bags, smaller handbags, and zipper pouches.  I joined the Quiltsy Team on Etsy in 2010.

Quiltsy Team Great Finds: 1-17-15

Winter is here, but where is the snow?  I know many don't like snow, but I love it.....as long as I can stay in the house and watch it fall with a nice big mug of hot chocolate.  I like hibernating - and not having to go out means I get to work on stuff around the house and SEW! 

The Quiltsy Team is in the midst of a fun team event - a mug rug swap.  Those participating get paired with another and each makes a mug rug to send to the other.  No pictures are exchanged so it is a surprise package!  If you're not familiar with "mug rug" it is like a large coaster, but smaller than a placemat.  It typically it can fit a mug and a small dish for a snack.  Mug rugs are inexpensive ways to add something fun to your decor.  Since this is going on, I decided to feature some mug rugs available from some Quiltsy Team members.

Quiltsy Team Great Finds: 1-11-15

What a cold morning it is here in downstate New York.  The arctic air mass is really doing its job.  I'm sure the polar bears are happy and to tell you the truth, I'm happy winter is "winter".  I'd really love a huge snow storm though....a nice 36" to keep me hibernated.  Thinking of winter, I decided to feature winter from this week's batch of shops.
