Day 9...slight change of plans

I finished one of the quilts today. It has a name on it, but it's purposely hidden to help keep it a secret (in case anyone is checking in on here who shouldn't know.)I haven't had much of a chance to work on them this week, but I did get most of the fabric cut for the rest of the quilts. I have decided that the two jungle quilts will be okay in size, but the ones I'm making for the older kids should probably be a little bigger. Therefore I may not be able to make all 8 quilts. I'm hoping that I can get Joann's website to cooperate and sign up for their mailing list. If I can get some coupons, or just find some good sales, then I may be able to get some more fabric. I also have the option of finishing a couple of blankets that I had already started. I also found a baby quilt that I had finished (just needs to be tied) made with Debbie Mumm's Noah's Ark fabric. I think I may sell that one. It's a little wrinkled from being folded up in the cedar chest, but here's what that one looks like.

I used to make photo albums out of wood and paint them, and then I would decoupage things on them and people can use them for scrapbooks (12x12 and 8 1/2 x 11). I even made some small 6x6 ones for recipes also. I will have to see if I can find some pictures of those. I made a couple that were decorated to match the Noah's Ark quilt, but I sold both of those.

I also decided that I'm going to have a huge Pre-Thanksgiving Sale over on my other blog. I've been neglecting it because I just haven't really had the time. So if you are interested in getting a lot of stuff for close to half price (or getting some great Christmas gifts for people), hop on over. I will be doing a giveaway on the final day of the sale. It's starting tomorrow and you have to order and pay by midnight Thanksgiving night.
