Miscellaneous projects

October 24, 2016

We have been very busy this past while. The majority of the time was spent getting the new colouring book ready to print. ( this time, we are doing it ourselves !) It has 43 drawings of early 1900s greeting postcards to colour as well as 3 pages of colour pictures of the original postcards in the back.

So far, we have been doing some advertising on Facebook, etc. The downloadable version is on my Etsy store – QuiltsNStuffbyCarol.

We had the covers and colour pages printed locally and did the rest ourselves. The pages are printed on 67lb cover stock which makes them lovely to colour on. Here is the set up for assembling the books…

You can just see the white cover on my sewing machine in the background…every surface has to do double or triple duty here!

We go to the local coffee hangout to colour once a week and I have been colouring the pages from our book…here they are so far…

Those blue pages are actually white! It was getting dark when I took those shots.

We shrunk 28 of the pages and the covers down to 4×6 and bought some Pad Glue to make gummed pads as well. The backs of the postcards are drawn to look like vintage postcards backs to make them useable.

Ok, I have started teaching quilting again after almost no classes all summer. A group of 4 gals came Monday and Friday this past week and created some beautiful Fall quilts…

Beautiful work, girls!

Besides these endeavours, I have been using my lovely scrapbook papers to cover Composition books…big and mini sizes…and making gift packs.

All of the items I have been working on are all for the many Craft Shows we are in. Here are the up-coming shows if anyone is in this area…

Nov 5- Possibly at the “Christmas on the Sissiboo” craft sale in Weymouth at St. Mary’s Bay Academy. ( we are on the waiting list)

Nov 12- Craft show at the Saulnierville Legion

Nov 19- Craft show at the Rodd Grand in Yarmouth

Dec 3- Craft show at the Yarmouth Memorial High School

Dec 4- Craft show at the Rodd Grand in Yarmouth

Never a dull moment, eh?

At the end of the week, we should be getting a small pellet stove installed in our living room….looking forward to some cozy heat this winter!

Well, thanks for stopping by

Stay warm and Happy Quilting/ crafting, etc!
