PARKING LOT SALE

Yesterday was a lot of fun. Did a vendor’s booth with a friend of mine. It was at Quilter’s Paradise in their parking lot along with an antique car show right in front! Sold several goodies and made a little money and had a blast with my friend, Gerry! My shoulders and neck are a little sore, but well worth the fun. We were in the front middle as you come in, so we had a lot of customers, wives with children coming in while the husbands looked at the cars.

Gerry makes all these beautiful American Doll clothes, including sandals and shoe boxes to put them in! Plus underwear! Very talented and clever lady! I made a bunch of sleep masks, clutch purses, and had a lot of other goodies from my sewing room out and sold most of it. The booth next to us had a booth full of fabric at a reasonable price. In fact, I got a really good deal, 10 cents per piece (a little irregular)! I spent a grand total of $1.50 for 15 irregular pieces. That was all I spent as I am trying to save a little for the quilt expo at the end of the month.

Doug was a true sweetheart and lugged everything back and forth from the cars for both Gerry and I. We went out for dinner last night as I was just too tired to cook.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
