i don't know if i've had some recent publicity that i'm not aware of or what but i have had a rush of inquiries about custom quilts in the last week so thought i've better put this out there: unfortunately, i am not taking any custom orders for quilts or soft toys in the foreseeable future. the kids are one huge reason - i don't have much sewing time these days and i don't want to feel guilty about people waiting months and months for their quilts, i still feel terrible about the custom orders i had to cancel while i was pregnant (still sorry about that all you nice people). plus i really burnt myself out with making market stock last year and want to find a nice balance between personal sewing and onegirl sewing in the limited time that i do have, mae needs plenty more "pitteee" (pretty) shirts for summer. i have hazy plans to get back into quilting next year but whether or not it will involve custom orders, i just don't know. this here is the place to find out, i guess - watch this space : )
the patchwork tops above will be part of the november shop update (date to be confirmed in the next week. i'm a bit behind due to crazy illness and my wool stuffing being packed away somewhere in storage), made into baby blankets backed with organic hemp/cotton fleece. that's as close to quilting as i'm getting these days and that's enough for now.
