So it has been awhile since I have posted, and honestly, I have questioned as to whether or not I want to continue blogging. I have to decided to try and become more organized and more intentional with my posting on my blog, Facebook and Pinterest. I wrote a weekly schedule for myself on when to post and ideas on what to post so we will see how it goes and if I can keep up with it.
Here is what I have been working on this past week...
I have been able to resume my sewing for charity. I had taken some time off due to life just getting in the way and some of the medical issues that popped up last year for our family. I missed sewing these sweet little items. Here are some pillowcases that I made for Fightingcancerinc.org. The group provides the flannel and I just saw them together. They provide sunshine boxes to those starting chemo treatments in Charlotte.
I was also able to make it to the most recent Charlotte Threads of Love meeting in Concord and drop off some finished items and pick up some to work on. They make and deliver to local hospitals for NICU babies. My girls were NICU babies for 5 and 6 weeks so this one is near and dear to my heart. I have little blankets and snugglies (positioning aids) to work on.
I also had the opportunity to make a Minnie catheter bag cover for a special little girl on the west coast. I don't normally carry licensed fabrics in my Etsy shop but when a mom makes a special request, I do purchase the fabric as a custom order only. She also ordered a cat catheter bag cover as well. I hope she loves them!
I was able to get closer to my goal this week of having 30 items listed in my Etsy shop. I added some catheter tubing covers as single listings. I sometimes have fabric left over and can't make a bag cover but I can make tubing cover so I will be listing them. Here are a couple of tubing covers that are in the shop now. They are 42" long and have Velcro strips all along the edge for easy on and off. I can also make them in different lengths as well.
I also added some some wheelchair/walker bags to the shop as well. I had sold out of the larger ones during the holidays and had trouble re-stocking the shop and keeping it stocked. I just love making these bags and seeing how the color combinations work out. They also work for use on a stroller as well to keep things like a pacifier or sippy cup handy.
Off to start another weekend! We are into watching the NCAA Men's Basketball March Madness and this is a great weekend for that. Other than that, hopefully a relaxing and low key weekend! What are you up to this weekend?
