Okay, so I’ve been silent for a few days. I’ve been working on a HUGE project. Only my Patreon supporters get the details, so join my Patreon page at http://www.patreon.com/thesiberianwind for the full updates! 😉 I need the financial support, so I must push it a little.
Here’s a little sneak peak into what I saw in my room while working on the first part of this huge project.
I’m also starting back on a “path” quilt as part of a challenge. I’m looking for a way for it to start supporting Fibromyalgia sufferers, so once it’s done, you’ll likely see LOTS of pictures of it EVERYWHERE! If you have anything to offer me, hit me up here, or get to my public Facebook page @ http://www.facebook.com/SiberianWindQuilting. To get notifications about updates, you can also sign up for twitter feeds at @wind_siberian!
This is what my sewing station looked like during production!
Basket 1, step 2 complete
are we done?
Nope! Next step up!
Are we done this time?
I’ve been out of commission for a few days, and am really not up to speed again yet (& not sure I will be for another week almost). Fibromyalgia and back injury gave been really attempting to run my life for me.
Anyway, I wanted to post a picture of what I’ve been working on and pushing through to get done. This is my basket of over 100 blocks waiting to be pressed and have the last seams sewn. On to pressing and sewing I go!
Okay, so a little about what’s been going on here in my studio! I’ve gotten one quilt ready and prepped to quilt (I’m going to be patient on quilting it…I’m still thinking on how to quilt it). I’ve also gotten a TON of squares cut for some cute 9-patches that are going to ship off to block swap with a lot of other avid quilters. I’m seriously hoping the swap lady doesn’t feel overwhelmed with my stash of 9-patches I’m sending her way in less than a week!
I’ve also gotten a little more established this past week. I’ve got a live twitter account @wind_siberian, gotten a few things into my Etsy shop (www.etsy.com/TheSiberianWind), and set up a Patreon page (where you can pledge to help support my quilting and keeping me going each month… http://www.patreon.com/thesiberianwind). LOTS of online time to get all this going! If you also want to keep informed in your Facebook page, go like it at http://www.facebook.com/SiberianWindQuilting . So, on to the pretty stuff!
Here’s some of what’s been on my cutting table today. I HAVE to say…I really hate plaids and ginghams. Oh, and mini-polka dots. They’re so hard on my eyes! I’ve got a plan for 936 5″ squares to go into the 9-patches I’ll be sending out. I’m just over a 1/3 of the way and have the rest of this week to get them cut, sewn, and sent. I also have to get a super-secret quilt only my Patron pledges get to see until it’s posted on Etsy for sale. If I am not rambling enough, I also have a very top-secret plan in the works that may bring some cute and adorable embroidery designs your way from an up-and-coming designer….I just can’t wait!!!! (*Editing note: I really can’t delete any of the content, and realize I tend to ramble when I’m excited. Very Excited. Really Very Excited. ROFL!)
Oy Vey! The pattern!
This came from a beloved quilt (it was extra fabric)
This is left over from a baby quilt I made almost a year ago now!
I’ve made a few items recently, and wanted to let my readers know what’s available! I am so excited to make it to this point. I’ve got a lot more projects in the works, but these have been on my table for a little while now. Time to get them out of the way to make room for more! Please share this post and help me get started on the right foot!
I also now have a Patreon website (www.patreon.com/thesiberianwind). I want to start working on my quilting more, but I need a little bit of financial help to cover supplies and other finances. I set a goal to cover my car payment, but I know that might be a ways off. Patreon allows you to help me out by pledging to help me once a month with a small donation. If I can get 100 people to donate a single $1 a month (totals a whopping $12/year per person), that covers $100 of my expenses, and gets at least one new project or pattern out the door. Please consider helping me…quilting is my passion and my therapy for fibromyalgia.
