Craft Buds is a wonderful website that has a lot of information for the business side of crafting. Many of us have thought about making our favorite hobbies into a viable business, Craft Buds is there to help us with that. I love reading their blog posts as they provide so much useful information.
Craft Buds is having a linky party on their site for the month of September. They are celebrating craft books.
Throughout the month, they will have loads of information on getting your own craft book out there for the public to see. They are also encouraging crafters to link up to their projects that they have made from craft books. If you do link up one of your projects, you will be entered to win one of many prizes.
Dewberry Lane has donated a prize, The Practical Guide to Patchwork.
This book is written by Elizabeth Hartman. I have been following Elizabeth’s blog for some time, and I am in love with all her patterns and this book.
To be entered for a chance to win this book, all you have to do is link up to a project you have made from any craft book. Just head on over to Craft Buds (here).
I am going to try and make a quilt top from Elizabeth’s book this month. I am going to be out of town for a week, so I am not sure if I will be able to complete the project before the end of the month, but we will see. I have picked the project and the fabrics I am going to be working on.
And I started cutting the strips of fabric I need.
I don’t have the second, lighter solid fabric that is needed for the pattern yet, but my plan is to make the blocks to the black borders, and then pick up the other fabric when I can. I will update the blog as I finish more steps!!
I am very excited to announce that Dewberry Lane is now offering longarm quilting services!! If you are like me, you tend to have more tops laying around the house then you have completed quilts. Why not let us finish them up for you, so they can be used and loved? A quilt isn’t really […]

I realized this weekend that I had never picked a winner for my “Back in Business” giveaway!! I am very sorry for the delay in that, I got so wrapped up in my P.S. I Quilt giveaway that it slipped my mind. I picked a winner using random.org though, and Judy Purcell is the lucky […]
Yesterday my emotions ran the gambit of utterly elated to completed frightened. It was quite a roller coaster to say the least. Since my husband got out of the Marine Corps, our family has been of the dual income kind, however starting on July 31st this will no longer be the case. Yesterday I walked […]

So I have been working feverishly on the site. I was hoping that I could have the site live by, well, today actually, but due to unforeseen circumstances I have had to change my whole website game plan. It’s not a huge deal, but it does mean more time, like 6 weeks more time. While […]
Thank you to everyone that left a comment on my last post!! You all had such great ideas for what you like in an online quilting store. I continue to work on the store, but have hit a slight snag. Hopefully it will not hold me up for too long, I am thinking it will […]
So now you know my big secret. I have been planning this store for a couple months now, and the one thing I have learned is that it is a LOT of work opening a store! I thought it would be, just buy some stuff, throw it online, call it a store …. but […]
