Etsy relisted

When I left for Florida in January, I put my Etsy shop on vacation as well.  I have returned to Maine, although it was waaaaay too soon.  Florida was wonderful and we are looking forward to returning after the holidays.

Tonight I finally got my items relisted in my Etsy shop.  Please stop by and check them out.  There is free shipping on the lap quilt if purchased before the end of April.  I have some other items ready but have not had the time to get them in the shop.  Soon, I hope.

Thanks for stopping by…

It’s been awhile since I posted anything.  That’s because we are enjoying our winter in Florida, being retired, having no agenda, doing whatever we feel like.  Occasionally I sew but not very often because I’m never home.  I am, however, constantly thinking of things I can make to sell in my Etsy shop when I get back to Maine. I have decided I want to make $$$ to supplement my pension by doing things I love…sewing, quilting and DOGS.  I spent many years working with people and I like dogs better at this stage of my life.  They don’t expect anything, they don’t feel entitled to anything, they just want to love and be loved.

We made some fleece blankets and toys for “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” and have made more fleece chew toys for the doggies at the shelter.  Sooo, chew toys and blankets are a possibility.

Last week I made a reversible bandana/kerchief for one of the dogs at the shelter.  I think it came out quite nicely.  I made another one for the doggies at home and will finish two more so that each one of them has a new one to wear.  The first one will go to Amber because Guinness already got a snuggle blanket and Ginger got a chew toy.

This one measures 34″ from end to end and fits nicely on a medium/large size dog.  This is Misty Rose, one of the shelter dogs wearing hers.

She has a beautiful face!

My daughter gave me a good idea for a name but I have to do some research first to make sure it’s available.  These are 100% cotton, completely reversible, top stitched for strength and durability and can be washed and dried with no problem.
