Testing and new work

Blogpress once again updated its app so this is a test to make sure it works. And, it appears it does. 

This weekend was a whirlwind of activity in the sewing room.  I have two craft fairs coming up so I wanted to get some knitted projects finished up so I could post them on etsy and also have them available at the fairs.  I also saw free instructions on the internet for a fabric coaster project that was simple, fast and easy and wanted to try my hand at them because I thought I could market them as hostess gifts at the craft fairs. Plus, I was able to use up a bunch of scraps and didn't have to buy any fabric at all!  Even used up batting scraps!  These coasters went together so fast and easy that now I have 8 sets of 4 and 6 coasters that I will sew up in the morning before work over the next few days (still have 4 more sets to make).  I am a happy girl and really glad that I worked in the sewing room instead of doing some of the housework I have on my list.  That can wait a little longer and maybe even longer than that :)

Wow you are right about the picture looking so focused when enlarged. Good color choices.
