Update on Sophie and shameless self promotion : )
« on: August 10, 2006, 04:37:33 am »
Hi everyone!  It's been awhile since I've posted regularly but I do check BPO everyday!  I have been busy starting my own small business and wanted to share it with my BPO friends.

(If this is not allowed please let me know and I will edit it out)

I started a company called Seaside Quilts.  I sell handmade baby and youth size quilts.  My website is live and ready for business!! I am soooo excited!!  http://www.seasidequilts.com  please go take a look and let me know what you think. Also please feel free to pass it on.  My grandmother and I are having so much fun making baby quilts. 

Sophie is doing great!  I've attached some pictures of her playing with her Cigar toy that my husband bought for her.  She loves it and the pictures are hilarious.

Congratulation s on your new website - that is soooo awesome!

As fo rthe pics - they are GREAT! Sophie looks like she enjoys "puffing" on a good cigar - now all she needs is a silk robe and a glass of cognac!  :)

Rachel,

OMG!  This is SOOOO exciting!!!!  Your quilts look fantastic....I've been sewing baby/dog blankets GALORE!  With all my girlfriends having babies left and right, I have to.  Also, I think *I* need a baby. I've been sewing blankets for *dogs*.  Oh, yes, for dogs.   ::)  They have to have them to go to the libraries to read to kids, so I really do have an excuse.

Remember that awesome website you showed me?  The one with the great fabrics?  I think you got the batiks from there...Anyway, can you remind me what it was?  I've been trying to find it and can't.   :-\

I'll have to pm you some pictures later of the dog blankies.  Maybe you should promote these as DOG blankies on BPO.  You'd rake it in!  ;) I'm really excited for you!
Julie--give hugs and kisses to Sophie

Hey Julie!  I was actually thinking about adding dog blankets in the future!  And would definitely be happy to do a custom order if someone wants one  ;)

There are a couple good fabric sites. I'm not sure which one exactly I gave you but here are a few I frequent :) www.bighornqui lts.com, www.fabricshac k.com, www.equilter.c om

I would love to see your pictures!

Hi Jenn!! I'm glad to see you back!  I hope the house is coming along good and you convince your mom you need that Pyr   ;D

Julie - LOL that sock monkey fabric is cute! FabicShack is the best.  They have great sales and quick shipping.
